What to give for Christmas?
“All I want for Christmas is”…well, actually my two front teeth are doing quite well and as cute as the song might be, choosing gifts for others is not as easy as the media would have us believe. The older I get I find the less I need and the less cognizant I am of what would be best to give someone else, especially now that technology and technological gadgets seem to sit at the top of every advertised gift-giving list. I know enough about computers to get my work to publishers and to keep in touch with friends on Facebook but that’s about it. By choice.

A time for celebration
We've all had them: bad days, good days, “dog days” - you get the idea - but this past week I’m celebrating one my most extraordinary “days to remember”. Read more...

Choosing to believe
What’s a body to believe these days? Between fake news, privacy breaches and rampant social media on the loose, knowing what’s worth believing is sometimes anything but easy to discern. Believing the right things is vital, however, be they matters of daily living, politics, faith or a host of other things. Read more...

What's Inside?
A story, directed to the children present in our church service this morning, was simple but it spoke an important message to my heart. Read more...

Never out of his sight
As I write, I like millions of other Canadians, are preparing to or are already celebrating Thanksgiving Day. It’s an annual event, a day officially dedicated to remembering all the blessings that we enjoy as individuals and as a nation. Read more...
