Gala: Gliding as Prophecy
Posted
Young women glide in hanbok, with hand drums and dance. This is their country, and they sway, decorated in flowers. I remember horror and indignation from embassy staff, but i see it still, undeterred: In their endurance, in their 5000 years of absorbing invasion, immigration, subjugation and som...

Birthday Party on Target! Mini Paintball at Edmonton Paintball Centre
Posted
The reaction from the group leader leads me to believe it is not the first time she has encountered the question. “You could eat the paintballs, they are non-toxic. But don’t.” The boys agree they would rather shoot each other than eat the paintballs, and the safety orientation ...

Posted
It seems to me that I promised to report back on how the word of the year for 2018, Me, is being used to help my best friend, Cathy, and I focus on what we often neglect..."Me" too easily gets pushed to the margins of life when too many other things are going on.

I've been dr...

2018 Ecumenical Prayer Schedule
