November’s issue is devoted to the stories of people who have felt called to the church—those who have chosen to stay.
In our first feature, Theo Robinson gives a testimony of his journey towards becoming one of Canada’s first transgender priests in the Anglican Church. Lynda Wolf writes about her first encounters with beauty growing up on the Saskatchewan prairies and how it shaped her understanding of God. As Lynda moved through various churches throughout her life and wrestled with her understanding of Jesus, she eventually found a home in the Anglican Church, attending the parish of St. Peter’s in Winnipeg. On page nine, Suzanne Rumsey of PWRDF offers an update on the PWRDF Refugee Network and the 15 Refugee Coordinators that “move heaven and earth to bring to Canada those who have lost their heaven on earth.”
Finally, in via media, Kirsten Pinto Gfroerer challenges us to consider the thread in our lives and where it might be leading us. Sometimes we are called to leave, and sometimes we must stay. The thread is a commitment to our own God-given life.
