Our Spiritual Pantry …

Posted on: April 3rd, 2019

I quite enjoy cooking and even more so creating. Rarely do I follow a recipe to the letter, but rather add this ingredient or that ingredient. Sometimes it depends what I have in the pantry to work with. And, if the recipe calls for one spice that I don’t have, I look for what I […]

Flexing our Spiritual Muscles …

Posted on: March 27th, 2019

Over the past few months I have been getting physiotherapy on my shoulder and not surprisingly, it’s helped. I have more mobility; can raise my arm higher; and further up my back. All of this was the result of an injury over 10 years ago when I broke my shoulder and required surgery to set […]

Now we’re engaged!!!

Posted on: March 15th, 2019

With great joy, it was announced on Sunday that the bishop has agreed to my appointment as Incumbent of St. Paul’s as of June 1. We have been together for a little more than a year and half. The original appointment was as Priest in Charge for two years which will take us to the […]

The Privilege of Lent …

Posted on: March 6th, 2019

Lent is often viewed as a drudgery to get through that can be very depressing and gloomy. And yet there has always been a part of me that has appreciated the passage of time in a way that invites me into intentional introspection around my faith and the living out of what I say I […]

The Oscars in heaven.

Posted on: February 28th, 2019

I was watching parts of the Oscars on Sunday night and wondered what might the Oscars be like in heaven. May seem like a bit of an off the wall question; but none the less it’s been interesting to ponder and have conversations with others about too at “holy spirits” the other evening. Read More […]

“Celebrating family!”

Posted on: February 20th, 2019

This past Monday was “Family Day” and we were blessed that Nathaniel was home to celebrate with us. Like so many others, we treasure the gift of our family in our children, mothers, brothers, nieces and nephews. It is wonderful to have that support that comes from life long relationships that form an integral part […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

Posted on: February 14th, 2019

Today is Valentine’s Day when we focus on the gift of love in our lives and especially those individuals we love and who love us too. To love is a very spiritual and faith related emotion to share with others; our experience of love is ultimately grounded in God’s love for us which we are […]

“Did Willie see his shadow??”

Posted on: February 6th, 2019

Friday was Groundhog day. I remember growing up it was quite the day at school. And to think that we put so much stock in whether or not the proverbial groundhog saw his shadow as some real indicator of when spring would come. Read More …

“Can you believe this is happening …”

Posted on: January 30th, 2019

I was at a pastor’s breakfast this past week where we heard a presentation on “Set Free Durham”. Here is a link to their website … http://www.setfreedurham.ca/ They are a Christian ministry set up to address the issue of human traficking in Durham region. In particular they raise awareness of how much of a reality this is […]

Whose fault … NOT MINE!!

Posted on: January 23rd, 2019

How many times have we sat at our computer and things aren’t going right, there’s some glitch that is disrupting what we want to do and accomplish. I don’t know about you, but I can get quite irritated with the computer because of course it’s the fault of technology, something the computer isn’t doing right. […]
