  • Sheer silence

    Sheer silence
    Silence is something like one’s good health. It is most prized when abruptly taken away, most cherished when suddenly recovered, when, as with the rush of light, we suddenly realize that we have been deprived of it for a long time. Then as it returns, a wealth of rediscovered feelings comes with it. Silence begins as something external and it becomes a state of being.

  • 'Thanks for the memories'

    'Thanks for the memories'
    A number of years ago I watched a television tribute to Bob Hope. Many different people who had played a significant role in his life took the microphone and sang back to Bob a verse of his signature tune, “Thanks for the Memories.”

    Conversations that connect faith and daily life
    The other day, as I sat in the barber’s chair, I couldn’t help thinking how wonderfully strange it was. There I was, sitting in this shop surrounded by machismo and boasting, listening to testosterone-fuelled music, and all the while engaged in a deep conversation with my barber about Jesus.

  • A gospel preached through time and example

    A gospel preached through time and example

    "My dad has become a great rector’s wife,” I remember saying in a sociology of religion class 20 years ago at the University of Toronto. I said it to get a laugh, but also because it was true. We were talking about the role of clergy in different world religions, and the discussion had turned to the unwritten assumptions of what a clergy person brings to a community.

  • Mishamikoweesh


    On June 4, I will be in Kingfisher Lake in northern Ontario for the inauguration of a new diocese. This occasion fulfills a vision of a deeply loved and highly respected elder, The Rev. William Winter. It had been revealed to him that some day there would be a truly indigenous church with leadership from among his own people.

  • The mother city of us all

    The mother city of us all
    In his book A Walk in Jerusalem, John Peterson writes: “No road in the Holy Land has been more travelled than the Way of the Cross in Jerusalem. It is an ecumenical phenomenon and never more so than today.”

  • It all starts with listening

    It all starts with listening

    Music was a deeply formative part of my adolescence. Along with Bible reading and daily prayer, my Christian music collection was incredibly meaningful to me. Audio Adrenaline, Amy Grant, DC Talk, Michael W. Smith, Petra and White Cross were just some of the bands in my collection.

    Christian drama prompts viewer to ponder nature of heaven
    Movies can entertain, inspire, make connections or pose questions. Heaven Is for Real is a Christian drama that covers all of these.
