Seeking Desert Hearts

What distracts you from hearing God’s call?  How do these very same things nurture you?  How can you hear God’s call within them?  How do you respond to these challenges?

The Gift of Mary

The biblical stories about mothers share some interesting insights.  Oprah Winfrey once said that biology is the least of what makes one a mother.  The biblical witness reaffirms this notion.

Try a Little Kindness

Lately I've been thinking about kindness.  I've noticed a distinct edginess in the air.  It cannot simply be attributed to recent political events  or "he who must not be named" in the United States of America.  The general tenor of public discourse has taken a turn toward coarse intolerance and impatience with one another that makes life more difficult than it needs to be.  Next week February 17-24 is Kindness Week and this is one voluntary day of recognition that I am going to celebrate.

Sir John A. McDonald – A Dubious Beginning

July 1 is Canada Day, a day during which many Canadians celebrate the achievements of the founding fathers of this country. Sir John Alexander Macdonald, as the first Prime Minister of Canada, July 1, 1867 – November 5, 1873, (and again October 17, 1878 – June 6 1891) will be one of those whose achievements will be celebrated.

I Lost A Friend Today – Abruptly and Again

I lost a friend today – abruptly and again. This friend and I were a team for a few years when we worked together in ministry. Then in a moment of great need on my part, she abruptly stopped supporting me. It has been three years, and yet, my heart lurched when I heard of her passing.

New Ministry, New Challenges

Hello Friends,

I’ve moved from native ministry on Christian Island to a wonderful congregation in the heart of Ottawa – Glebe-St. James United Church.  GSJ is an Affirming Congregation in the United Church of Canada – which means that they are deliberate in welcoming everyone who comes in the doors.  What particularly interested me was their commitment to social justice and, in particular, their desire to understand and support the neighbouring First Nations communities.
