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.”

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.

Racial Justice in the Reading Classroom

After noticing that some of the books we grew up reading were less than inclusive and made for attitudes about our neighbors that had to be unlearned, we started wondering...how do parents and educators find books that both explicitly and implicitly support a cornerstone of our theology--that all people are made in the image of God? We've asked a number of justice-minded parents and educators for their thoughts. Today we hear from Laura Veenema, a literacy tutor and mom in Chicago. 

5 Week Election Spirituality Challenge

Could the long, slow work of voting and political action be thought of as a spiritual discipline?
