Direction, Road Maps, & Leaps of Faith (Song Story – Dusty Road)

We live in the wake of Easter, we are a people who live in the aftermath of life changing events; Jesus’ death and resurrection. We’ve come through the seasons of Advent, waiting in anticipation for the coming of Christ. We’ve celebrated the birth of Christ and the beginning of His ministry on Earth. We’ve followed Jesus [...]

They Are The Weakest Of The Weak

I used to think that Easter was just about the death and resurrection of Christ; Good Friday and Easter Sunday respectively... But, then I found Maundy Thursday. For most, this is our understanding of the Easter season, Jesus dies and then comes back. Yet, it’s not the whole story. There’s something that happens before... a [...]

Does Tradition Matter? What hipster coffee culture has taught me about Church

Those who know me, will know that I really like coffee. I can appreciate a good cup of coffee, and do so on a daily basis. But, one thing I really struggle with is that every time I visit what one might call a “Hipster Coffee Shop” I get the feeling that I’m stepping into [...]


What we called blessed or consider ourselves blessed by is often a good indicator of where our reality is at. So, All Saints Day happened a few days ago. That wonderful time of year where we celebrate all the saints we’ve never heard of, and the few that we have. This whole saint thing is [...]

Worth It?

Last week over 700 teens and 150 volunteers from across Canada descended upon Kamloops. BC for the Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth Gathering. The conference happens every two years in select cities across Canada and seeks to create an atmosphere where teens can encounter God, realize and develop their gifts, and build community with other Christians.

It’s Time To Yoke Up

I have to confess, the term “yoke” always mystified me as a kid. My mind immediately jumped to an image of an egg. Which lead to the even more troubling image of Christ cracking an egg over my head saying, “Take my yolk upon you”But, to understand this allusion, we’ve got to understand the metaphor. [...]

The Kingdom Of God | In Our Midst.

Our gospel today falls right smack dab in the middle of the last supper. And unlike Matthew, Mark, and Luke, John spends a decent amount of time here. In fact, he spends more time recounting these moments, than he does on the crucifixion. For at this moment, in the midst of the intimate Passover meal, [...]

God Speaks Through Difference

Acts 6:7-12,  7:1-2, 51-58    As we continue our way through Acts, we’re starting to understand the story of the early Christians better. News of Jesus’ death and resurrection was spreading. But, the good news wasn’t good news for all. It was bad news for anyone in power, for anyone who abuses the weak and it [...]

To the person who stole my wallet…

To the person who stole my wallet and the cash inside it: Firstly, thank you for leaving my wallet in a place I could find it, with all my cards and ID's. You have no idea how frustrating it is to replace all those. Secondly, This morning you devastated me and I spent a significant [...]

Is Secular Music Becoming Worship Music?

It may seem absurd to some and completely logical to others. Everyone has at least one "non-Christian" song that evokes a profound emotional or spiritual response within them. Why do songs that aren't standard church hymns connect with us spiritually? There are many answers to that question. One thing is for sure though, many churches are inviting today's "greatest [...]
