Jesus of the Truth-telling

This is a prayer that comes after the Act of Re-Membering workshop some of us participated in this past week.  In it we heard stories and we embodied stories of real Canadians from history, and from today-often in their own documented words.   That we, every single people group, are capable of prejudice and of...

Encounter

Let me say that humans are so strange.  I know this because I’ve been one my whole life and I’ve lived with them my whole life.  Even this week, I looked at my husband, who I really truly adore, and he looked at me, who obviously he adores, and  we both thought – “huh?”  He... Continue Reading →

All Our Stories Are Doorways

I think about our stories, about how varied they are. They have strange parts. Do you ever think about something that happened in your life and think, “That was so weird. Why did that happen?”  And then I think about how similar all our stories are. How they all include some joy and some questions... Continue Reading →
