Confirmands Faith Statements

Each year for confirmation the students are asked to write a faith statement. They choose a bible verse that speaks to them, talk about what it means and answer questions like “Have you ever doubted that God exists?” or “What does the word faith mean to you?” This year we had Brenna, Ashley, Brendan and […]

Science and Faith – June 7th Presentations

On June 7th from 7-9pm Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church is hosting an event that addresses our ongoing attempt as Christians to reconcile what we believe is true in scripture with what we experience through science. Is evolution a part of God’s plan for creation? Is the bible a type of science book? What does faith […]

Flight 9525

It’s difficult to imagine how one persons decision can both end the lives of 149 people and change the lives of so many others but on March 24th 2015 it did. Perhaps one of the most difficult parts of such a tragedy is the sense of meaninglessness. What did these people die for? What was […]

The experiment is called Ashes to Go and happens on Ash Wednesday. The premise is to offer a holy moment in the middle […]

You’re Worth More Than Gold

For it was you that formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:12-13 During our last tween group we watched the music video above. It talks about being worth more than gold. We then took pieces of paper […]

The Carnival of Christmas

After reading a portion of Esther this Sunday I was reminded of Mikhail Bakhtin’s carnivalesque. The book of Esther is born out of the Jewish carnival Purim. Bakhtin talks about the carnival as a time when things that aren’t ordinarily expressed can come out, a time when the high and low things of life come […]

Terror Creates Terrorists

Over the past week Canadians have struggled to come to grips with the killing of two soldiers. Was this an act of terror connected to groups like ISIS? Were these “Lone Wolves,” acting more out of anger towards the system and personal pain than political ideology? Whatever the base motives terror is always the attempt […]

A Time for Listening and Caring by Christina Puchalski

One of the challenges we face as Christians in a very busy world is taking the time to stop and listen to the people around us. This is especially true for those working in the medical system, where demands on time seem endless (along with many other occupations). I don’t have enough time. I have […]

God Bless America

What does it mean to be blessed? Often we talk about being blessed when things are going well, when we’ve experienced some joy in our life like a new baby or the purchase of a new home. Joseph’s experience of blessing was nothing like ours here in Canada. It came out of being sold into […]
