Five Ways to Nurture and Grow Our Faith

        I don’t know about you, but I am an expert at growing weeds. It doesn’t seem to matter how often I weed, or how thorough a job I do, for some reason or another weeds just keep coming back stronger than before. . . I have now in recent years, discovered the success and marvelous method of square foot gardening. This makes so much sense and is incredibly easy to manage because all I have to worry about is one square foot at a time.

Who is your Neighbor When it Comes to the Will of God?

        This past week has been an emotionally charged week for the Church and the country. This is the week where the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has been gathering in Ottawa to mark the end of the Commission and the work of Truth and Reconciliation to begin, a process that may last a life time. As has been noted many times this week, the commission is drawing to a close, however Truth and Reconciliation still continue and are active as we as a church and a people come to terms with the hurt and pain that Aboriginal people have endured through Residential Schools and other Government policies and practices.

What Does it Mean to Lay Your Life Down for Another?

            Jesus says, “Love one another as I have loved you” and “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
I can remember one of my first Spiritual Directors, even though at the time, I never realized that she was in fact, my Spiritual Director. Pat Taylor was my figure skating coach.
