Go Explore!

As I was driving this morning, watching all the cars, staying in lanes, signalling turns, stopping together, moving together it occurred to me that it all seemed so mundane, predictable, mandated.  I wondered how it was that I became controlled in such a blasé form of exploration. The only places I could go is... Read More

Story Time

Dear friends, I love hearing and reading people’s stories. Especially stories of how people have encountered God. Recently, at our regional retreats, our Evangelists shared their stories.

Fear & Doubt

From August 3-6, 2017 I was blessed to experience the beauty and hospitality of Whitehorse. I was there to speak at the Gospel Jamboree hosted by the Anglican Diocese of Yukon.

Fandango!

There was a change, a sudden and discernible change in the atmosphere. The professional servers in their crisp white blouses and sharp ebony vests began to offer trays of appetizers. Folks that had only witnessed such scenes on the television found themselves catered to in this stylish way. A sense of delight and... Read More

Frisbee

The Sword & the Trowel

One of my favourite little puns is, “I was wondering why the Frisbee was getting bigger and bigger … then it hit me!” For a long time I have been looking for a handbook on “How to Build Community”.
