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?

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.
