Go Make Disciples of All Nations?

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations." There are probably fewer words in the Scriptures that have had a more profound effect on our common history as the men and women of the Christian faith in that simple phrase: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations."

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.”

Wistfully Dreaming of Camelot

I believe God has instilled in us a craving, a deep desire to run with him on a fantastic adventure, yet many of us crawl along in life without even a glimpse of our hidden passion. There has to be a reason for living. There must be a Camelot, a hidden Utopia where we can rest from our personal campaigns. Fantasy opens our eyes to a better place, a shining city we do not yet know. And these stories provide a mental bridge to that city as we pursue horizons we could never distinguish with our physical eyes. ~ Bryan Davis

What's the Deal with Pancake Day?

Pancake Day, also known as Pancake Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday, is the day before the first day of Lent, known as Ash Wednesday.  Shrove Tuesday is always 47 days before Easter Sunday so Pancake Day falls sometime between February and March every year.  Pancake Day is also known as Mardi Gras, a French name meaning Fat Tuesday.  This year Pancake Day is on Tuesday, February 28.

Practical Ecumenism

Ministry on the island is intimately pretty practical.  I was planning to head to the Indian Fellowship Meeting at Rama First Nation today but last night one of the Roman Catholic women on the island stopped by.  One of her relatives had passed away and was being brought home to the island today.  Unfortunately, the priest, not understanding the need for his presence at this time, was not able to be available for the “welcome home to the island” ceremony.  So…I threw on my clerical collar and went down to meet the ferry, then vested and led the service at the Catholic Church.  As a former Catholic myself it was a little strange to be vested and leading worship in the Catholic Church in place of the priest!  (But I kind of liked it!)  The family isn’t sure whether the priest will be there for the wake tonight so I have to be prepared to lead that too…  And be ready to play and sing as well.
