God is in Control but I am Still Hurting

I am heartbroken, scared, angry, and confused.

Two things our Human Trafficking Response must Include

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Proverbs 31:8-9

There is great work going on across the country to speak up and defend the rights for those who are being trafficked and exploited. For some, speaking up has meant asking the government (both federally and provincially) to “speak up” and dedicate resources to defend the rights of exploited children, women, and men.

#CRClistens: 3 Guidelines for Dialogue on Social Media

When you throw verses at someone and tell them that their role in the church is not ‘true to scripture,’ what you are saying is, “Nope, God is not calling you to do what you think you are being called to do or be who you think God is calling you to be.” Scripture should be our guide. Absolutely. As you are guided by Scripture, be aware that the “cost” of a certain interpretation of Scripture may be much higher for someone else than it is for you.

Who is She: The Stories Behind the Red Dress

Under this red dress is a sign that reads “Who is She?” It is this sign that truly compelled me to read about and pray for the people who are represented by these red dresses that many Canadians have seen in their cities over the past few month.

Pro-Life series: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

To me, being pro-life means lamenting the disproportionate number of Indigenous women who are missing and murdered. 

Pro-Life series: Porn is not a Victimless Crime

"The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come that they may have abundant life."  (John 10:10)

Porn steals, kills, and destroys on so many levels.  It dishonors, disrespects, devalues, dehumanizes, demeans, and degrades human life. We have reclassed someone who is made in the image of God to being a “virtual pixelized prostitute.”

Pro-Life series: Women on the Margins

I want to beg them to put down their signs and instead invest that time in helping vulnerable women and their children. 

Pro-Life series: Proclaiming Good News to the Poor

This is the 7th post in our "What Being Pro-Life Means to Me" series! What does being pro-life mean to you? Over this fall, we'll hear various writers respond to that question. Learn more and subscribe for weekly email updates. 

Two weeks ago, I think there was a celebration in heaven. The Bible speaks of a God who expresses anger, sadness, and joy; a God who rejoices in creation, in us, and in life – and in the acts of truth, hope, and creativity of which human beings are capable.

Point-counterpoint: Don't Defund Planned Parenthood

The CRCNA is resolutely pro-life, which includes opposing the practice of abortion. Pro-life people are not in agreement over whether defunding Planned Parenthood is the answer. Will defunding this organization actually reduce abortions?

Point-counterpoint: Defund Planned Parenthood

At the OSJ, we are hearing both arguments for and against defunding Planned Parenthood recently. Pro-life people are not in agreement over whether defunding it is the answer. So we are hosting a point-counterpoint set of articles--one CRC member writing for defunding the organization, and another writing against defunding it.
