Easter: An Opportunity for Solidarity

 

For many Christians, Easter is a high holy holiday — it’s the religious bedrock that not only anchors them in their faith, but it also shapes and governs their view of the world. I’m one of them. Easter matters to me.

Seed Meditation

 

Imagine a seed of your favourite flower, it appears dead.
Take that seed and mentally plant it in rich soil, with adequate water, and plenty of sunlight.
Become aware of the natural energy of the universe, God’s creative power,
the energy of growth that allows this tiny seed to burst forth.
See the roots shooting out in all directions, becoming embedded in the rich dirt around it.

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?

Rethinking Canadian Culture

Canada Day, which the country observed yesterday, raises all sorts of troubling questions, some of them quite divisive....I want to run with a question about culture today, but it is a bit of a spin off from the usual culture questions that are raised by Canada Day. I want to ask whether the basic message that Jesus preached in fact raises some even more fundamental challenges to the ways culture is celebrated.

Who Has Seen the Wind?

“Who has seen the wind? Neither I nor you? But when the leaves hang trembling, the wind is passing through. Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I. But when the leaves bow down their heads, the Wind is passing by.”

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.

Taking Risks

When someone mentions an eagle, what do you think of in your mind?  Would you rather be a chicken in the folk or an eagle catching thermals in the heavens? What is the church being called to do?

Thinking about Vulnerability

Yesterday I had surgery.  It wasn’t a big deal – the procedure was easy…due to the miracle of modern pharmacopeia I slept through it.  The next day, today, is a lot worse.  As I stumble around the house I’ve been thinking a lot about vulnerability.  It’s interesting that there is hardly a soul alive that likes being vulnerable.  Yet, as Christians, we follow one who, like us, came into the world as a babe – one who was completely dependent on others for everything.
