Crying at My Desk on a Tuesday

I am a co-op student studying Urban and Intercultural Ministry at Redeemer University (Ancaster, ON). In January 2021, I began my position as the Hearts Exchanged Program Assistant. Hearts Exchanged is a learning and action journey designed to equip Reformed Christians in Canada to engage with Indigneous people as neighbours. We hope to model ways of undoing past harms and building relationships of respect and mutuality by equipping participants with broadened insights and shared experiences.

They Will Know We Are Christians by our Refugee Resettlement

In our world today there are over 80 million people who have been forcibly displaced from their homes, including 26.4 million refugees. In my last post I mentioned that less than 1% of refugees are resettled through a formal refugee resettlement program in one of 37 formal resettlement countries yearly, but in 2020 that number dipped down to the lowest in recorded history.

When People Say ‘We’ve Made it Through Worse Before’: A Lenten Prayer

When people say 

‘we’ve made it through worse before’ . . . 

all I hear is the wind slapping against the gravestones

of those who did not make it, those who did not

survive to see the confetti fall from the sky, those who

did not live to watch the parade roll down the street.

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Today is a momentous day in Canadian history. It is our first National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. As the new Interim Executive Director for Restorations Second Stage Homes I am honoured to share a little bit about myself and my story with you here.

Soil People

It may be tempting to think that the call to care for creation is more political than theological, and at best whisked away to a few obscure passages of Scripture; that all the talk about churches and solar panels, reducing carbon emissions to love the creation, and reconnecting to the land are outside of the purview of the church. And yet, a deep dive into the Scriptures shows that the people of God and their well-being are intimately tied up in how they treat the land, the creatures, the sea, and the sky.

Revelations about Sexual and Spiritual Abuse

With the further revelations about evangelist and apologist Ravi Zacharias’ sexual and spiritual abuse heard this week, we pray for the victims of abuse who have been silenced in the church.  

Lord who sees,
