Morality and Cancel Culture

I was intrigued by the description on our community's social media page of a local candidate in the village's upcoming election. "I believe in: .... Bylaws that are relevant, current and make sense; Bylaw enforcement..." A few days later, when other candidates knocked on my door to introduce themselves and discuss my civic concerns, I...

Covid-19: Active Rest

Since our provincial government has encouraged us to stay at home, I have been trying to plan out meals and calendar activities for this month and next. I fully intended on staying inside and not risking going out for shopping, but as our risk of contracting the virus will only increase over the next several... Continue Reading →

Speaking your truth

In my research into hypothyroidism, I came across the Hindu teachings about chakras. To be clear, I don't ascribe to Hinduism but my interest was piqued by their belief that thryoid issues were due in part to not using your voice. Acquiescing to others when you know you shouldn't; staying silent instead of speaking up;... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 37, Having a Voice

"When we remain silent or refuse to use our gifts, we hamper the body of Christ from achieving its fullness.

Renewed: Day 32, Redemption

"...those lessons were costly. And the church - have they learned anything from this? Or will they repeat the same process with another pastor two years down the road: hope, disillusionment, blame, conflict, gone? It's out of my hands now.  God, I want to believe nothing is wasted with you. But what was the purpose... Continue Reading →

Renewed: Day 27,Worship

"...when I've spent the week weeping over the broken relationships and strife we seem unable to overcome, on Sunday mornings it's hard to worship." (Renewed, Leigh Powers, pg 111) This describes my battle most Sundays since September of last year. Once you know that your congregation has people in it who don't want your husband...
