May Magazine 2023: Commissioned

The cover of May's Issue. The cover photo features a fantastical photo realistic image with the silhouette of a deer in front of a glowing sun-like ball. The deer appears to be in a dark forest and there are three other sun-like balls in the background apparently scattered throughout the woods.
Commissioned

What is it which we as Christians are called to? This month’s issue of RLN deals with questions of Christian commission.

In our Community Catechesis section, Ryan Turnbull deals with the question of Christian calling in the face of climate crisis, and considers what it might mean for our faith communities to act in true solidarity with the earth and with our creaturely others, close and far away.

Next, David Driedger writes on how Christian daily life engages with the events of Easter, with Christian faith functioning as continual workshopping of the resurrection.

Then, May’s issue presents an interview with Gary Russell on his work Radical Grace and the Economy, which posits that our calling as Christians puts us at odds with the logics of dominant economic systems.

Finally, youth from St. Margaret’s Anglican church reflect on their experiences traveling the El Camino, and the complexities of Christian pilgrimage, literal and spiritual.
