Emerging Generations

Father, Each morning, I wait for my classroom of bustling students to arrive. As they enter the hallway, I listen. And so their stories are told. In their words and by their actions, I am reminded daily of the battles your children face. One where they struggle to accept their differences as beauty. One where their own communities refuse to accept their unique quirks and gifts as valuable. I hear it in the way they

Neighbourhoods, Networks & Communities

The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31 Neighbourhoods Take a moment to think about where you live. Your neighbourhood. Take a look outside and look at your street. Maybe you know your neighbours by name or you just know their faces or maybe you don’t know them at all. Take a moment and pray for them.  When we pray for those that we may

The Forgotten

I remember a Friday night many years ago when friends going away for a weekend left without me simply because I couldn’t get off work till 6pm.  I’ve since recovered from that slight (even had a good weekend without them!) but it was no fun at the time to be forgotten. You likely have a story of being forgotten.  It may be a profound story that has shaped your life or an easily forgiven oversight

The Candle of Joy

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE: The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. - Matthew 4:16 Father, how much we need the reminder of our family history! - the good part, where You, the friend of sinners, call us Your friends, where You tell us

The Candle of Peace

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE... Oh, King of Peace, Prince of Peace! Oh, this world needs You. Peace isn’t something that we’ve got too much of, that’s for sure. If we’re looking at the big picture of the world or the little picture of our own lives- to have peace characterize our lives and our relationships sounds like a dream. And that it would take a miracle. We know it’s not supposed to depend on

The Candle of Hope

A LAMENT FROM THE PEOPLE... So here we are, God. Our calendars tell us it's Advent and that we're to be celebrating. But frankly, God - and forgive our complaining - or perhaps it's truth-telling - but one quick look around the globe and the conflict and killing and the cruel way we treat each other - and it just reminds us how busted we are. We read the newspapers in the morning and the headlines

A Prayer for Every Day

  My thoughts are scattered, My tongue can't speak. My knees don't bend, And my heart is weak. But help me, Father, Like sky and tree, In every moment Live a prayer to Thee. My climbing out of bed, Praise Your Name. My putting on the kettle, A confession of my need. My coming and my going, Thank you Lord. My texts and emails, Supplication for my friends. My stirring at the stove, Meditation on
