Happy New Year! As we move past the Christmas and Advent Seasons and into the New Year we celebrated Epiphany on Sunday. This day is so significant to the work we do because it reminds us yet again that Jesus came for the WHOLE world; for ALL people. As we enter a new year and […]

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. The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Saviour ...

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 […]

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 […]

Messengers of Hope!

I have spent almost 60 years ‘hoping’ that the Maple Leafs would win another Stanley Cup – and I am not alone.  The players, coaches, managers and even owners have changed many times.  Each new team enters a new season promising hope in September and ripping it from our psyche every spring.

Why Hope?

Why? Why Hope? I keep six honest serving-men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When And How and Where and Who. (Rudyard Kipling) CBC has an investigative television show called W5. It is based on the 5 questions that are asked in almost any investigation. The first four […]

The Anchor of Hope

In our world, it seems that our experience, from the highest to the lowest, the richest to the poorest, fittest to challenged, is determined by the bottom line. Everything has a cost and these costs must be constantly reduced to improve the bottom line. The budget is a constant concern. As governments cut services, there […]
