The Secret to Love

“Love your neighbour as yourself.” – Matthew 22:39 “Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.” – Brene […]

It seems like we often have more questions than answers in life. Sometimes answers seem hard to come by, and out of reach. This can make it difficult to focus our thoughts, to answer honestly, and to even grasp the questions at hand. In the Bible we often read of Jesus asking someone He has […]

An Event for Everyone

There were sheepherders camping in the neighbourhood. They had set night watches over their sheep. Suddenly, God’s angel stood among them and God’s glory blazed around them. They were terrified.

Joy While Waiting

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice! – Philippians 4:4 I very much love the Advent wreath. There is so much symbolism to it; its circular shape is meant to represent God, the Creator and Preserver of all things. God’s love has no beginning and no end; it is eternal. There are […]

400 Years

“Lord give me patience and give it to me NOW!” No one likes to wait. Today’s society values instant and on-demand. From microwaves to fast food, we are programmed not to wait.

Feel vs. Choose

There are many days I do not feel like celebrating. Last week my mother was in a car accident. We are thankful that everyone involved is okay. But we are not celebrating the fact that it happened, or the ramifications of someone else’s carelessness. Needless to say, I’ve struggled to figure out what to write […]
