April Issue: Transitions

 

In this month’s issue, an article by Janet Ross from the Centre for Christian Studies shares experiences of transformation from those who’ve participated in leadership and discipleship training at CCS.

April is National Poetry Month, and we have included a poem titled “Spring Delight in Praise of God (IV)” from the book Wonder-work: Selected Sonnets of Catharina Von Greiffenberg co-translated by Joanne Epp, Sally Ito, and Sarah Klassen.

Next, an interview with The Rev. Wilson Akinwale explores his new position as National President and the Board Chair of the Black Anglicans of Canada and his role on the Evangelical Lutheran anti-racism task force. Akinwale speaks to the joys and challenges of these new roles and his hopes for a Black Anglican Church in Canada.

The Rev. Helen Holbrook discusses a recent workshop on change journeys that she led at Holy Trinity aimed at helping parishioners talk through difficult periods of change in their church communities.

The Rev. Theo Robinson shares an announcement of a joint committee struck between Anglicans and Lutherans to respond to rising anti-2SLGTQIA+ rhetoric and provide community support for those within the MNO Synod and the Diocese of Rupert’s Land.

And finally, a parish profile on Stonewall Church of the Ascension offers a window into the faith community of this parish which extends far beyond the walls of the church, into the town of Stonewall and beyond.

I hope you enjoy this month’s articles.
