In this month’s issue, former RLN editor Jude Claude writes a community catechesis reflecting on Karl Barth’s understanding of the “pistis Christou” debate –  the theological distinction between “faith of Christ” and “faith in Christ” – as it relates to the recent protest by self-immolation of US serviceman Aaron Bushnell.

Cass Smith’s article “When Faithful Leadershership is Not Effective Leadership” explores common pitfalls leaders fall into when working within unjust systems. She also discusses how the expectations people hold of those in leadership sometimes contribute to their burnout, calling for us to have a more gracious and human understanding of those in leadership.

For the Lenten season, Paul Dyck reviews two films, Zone of Interest and Perfect Days, each of which attends to the mundanity of ordinary life while troubling us with how the everyday is often unsettlingly close to the extremes of human monstrosity.

This month’s parish profile interviews the Rev. Wilson Akinwale and Deb Buxton from St. George’s Anglican (Transcona) discussing the parish’s rich history, its evangelical/contemporary approach to worship, and community engagement including their recent Black history service.

To close out the issue, a directory of Holy Week services is offered as a guide for the Easter Season.

I hope you enjoy this month’s articles.
