Growing into Jesus in Portage la Prairie

A few weeks ago, our weekly email announced that there was an EFM graduation at St. Mary’s, la Prairie. Here’s a little more of their story: There was a very happy occasion earlier this spring at St. Mary’s la Prairie Church, Portage la Prairie, when six members of our congregation

For some people, the term ‘musical’ recalls entertaining productions such as those created by Noel Coward, the Gershwins and Flo Ziegfeld: light hearted, fanciful, and designed to take people’s mind off the difficulties of the depression and war. They tended

Moving Toward Synod 2014

The times, they are a-changin’— so goes the old Bob Dylan song.  There is a familiar ring to this phrase as we move toward Synod 2014.  With the arrival of our sisters and brothers from the southern region of Keewatin, now the Kenora St. Alban Archdeaconry, our Synod numbers change and

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.
