Justice Prayers - June 5

One Size Does Not Fit All 

When speaking about environmental justice in my role with A Rocha Canada I am often asked: “But what can I do?”

There are so many answers to that question and much of it depends on where you live, how you live, and what is happening in your neighbourhood. It is tempting to hand out a checklist on how to be a better steward so we can check all the boxes and be done with it. But there are several problems with this approach, which is why I hesitate to be too quick to hand out a checklist.

Creation’s Easter Celebration!

Christ is risen from the dead,

and creation celebrates!

Have you ever thought about what Easter means for the created world? Have you ever thought about why it matters that Christ’s resurrected body was in a physical form? Christ’s body was recognizable by its scars. It could be touched. Christ’s resurrected body has implications for the creation around us, because matter, the things of this earth, matter to God. They will be changed, renewed, restored, but still recognizable, scars and all.

An Election Budget, Wild Times, and a Call to Prayer

Political pundits and partisans often use the annual budget announcement as an opportunity to evaluate a government – to sing its virtues or to decry its follies. Many civil society organizations, like the Christian Reformed Centre for Public Dialogue and our partners, also watch the budget announcement closely to evaluate progress on justice priorities. Budgets are moral documents, after all, revealing the priorities of our nation and our leaders.

An Inheritance for my Grandchildren
