This day is the last session in the Series Praying in the Midst of Life. For those participating, … Continue reading April 24, 2020

I cannot ignore the shooting rampage that has taken place in Nova Scotia. I spent 17 months in that Province of creative, peace-loving, welcoming people. It is difficult to even begin to imagine the effects of the loss, and my heart wants to move to a place that doesn't know about it, but, of course … Continue reading April 20, 2020

Blog postings were a little erratic last week as I spent time preparing Good Friday and Easter Service. The same may be so this week as I will be taking time during the next little while to learn how to make on-line delivery a little smoother; how to design my blog, and how to set … Continue reading April 13, 2020

So here we are, two weeks later, same view from my window, but a new way of praying. Peace and Love. Stay safe. Stay Well. Praying in the Midst … Continue reading April 08, 2020

48 Hours in the life of a Theology Student in 1992 I know I skipped yesterday. I didn't mean to skip yesterday's blog, but Holy Week is almost here (starts tomorrow) an I was pre-occupied. You would think with being in one place for 24/7 I would have more, not less time for writing. Well … Continue reading April 04, 2020

April already and the sun is shining. And I am inside, having no balcony in my apartment. I haven't checked the rooftop terrace, but I suspect the door is locked as all room for social gathering in my building are "off limits". Fortunately, for me, I an introvert; so the time of confinement to my … Continue reading April 02, 2020

I'm back. I missed yesterday's blog -- on purpose. I tried to settle down to write it, but I couldn't get out of the Covid-crowded world enough to do anything productive. So I decided that before I went back to blogging, I needed some TWAG (Time Alone with God). Now you would think I would … Continue reading April 01, 2020

Good Sunny Morning (at least it is sunny here in Hamilton). The window over my desk gives me a wonderful view of the city. It may be blurry because of a year's worth of dust on the outside of the window, but it is still a source of sun and warmth. Praying in the Midst … Continue reading March 25, 2020

Monday is my usual day off and I considered not writing a blog post today. However, I decided I would this Monday, and then for following Mondays, plan ahead. It is important when our routines have been disrupted by life (i.e., a pandemic) to find a new routine that works. Our weekly or bi-weekly trip … Continue reading March 23, 2010

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY. One of my favourite morning prayers is Hymn 410VU: This Day God Give's Me. It is inspired from the lorica or breastplate of St. Patrick (that is, a prayer of protection). Woohoo!!  I was checking my rarely used stash of useful items and I have 4 facemasks left from what the … Continue reading March 17, 2020
