December Magazine 2019

In December’s issue on Turnings and Yearnings, we’re exploring the balance between change and tradition, the turning of the old year into the new. Hannah Foulger writes about grief and changing traditions at Christmas through the lens of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and Ryan Turnbull extrapolates on some new regenerative agricultural techniques as a metaphor for “soil spirituality.”

We’ve got lots of news in the Parish News Round Up, as well as a story and photos from Rick Morgan, Chair of the Mission and Ministry Committee at St. George’s, Crescentwood, about his recent trip to Uganda to visit their companion parish. And, in via media, Lynda Wolf draws parallels between dementia and the Book of Lamentations from her experiences as an occupational therapist.
