Justice Delayed is . . .

Well, that’ll learn him. Last week the disciplinary committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario revoked the licence of Mohammed Shamji. You would think they would need a pretty good reason to take such a drastic step. The reason given for revoking his licence was professional misconduct. You might wonder what that…

A Matter of Evil

And just like that, everything changed. Things will never be the same in Nova Scotia again, and all because of an evil that will not be named. When ********** went on his murderous spree last Sunday he was not just a murderer, he was a thief. He stole the lives of some people and he…

. . . until Christ is all you have

We recently bought a new Corolla and as a part of the Toyota Safety Sense, it’s got a neat feature called a Pre-Collision System. The official explanation is that it is: “a safety system designed to reduce the possibility or severity of frontal collisions by warning drivers of impending crashes with vehicles ahead.” So in…

When I’m afraid . . .

It seems like a lifetime ago, but it been less than a month since that I read an article about travellers cancelling their trips and vacation plans because of fear over COVID-19. The gist of the article was that travellers were discovering the limitations of their travel insurance.  In most cases, the discovery wasn’t a…

Looking to the Future

Twenty-Five years ago this week I was stressing about our first worship service as a church.  Would there be someone there to unlock the LeBrun Centre? Would anyone show up for the service?  Would I remember my message?  Seems like minor worries today. The day we launched, phrases like social distancing and self-isolation were unheard…

Oops. I Forgot

Sometimes, time gets away from us and we forget things.  Have you ever forgotten to renew your licence or cancel a subscription?  We don’t even want to bring up the forgotten MVI on Angela’s car in 2005.  Seriously, I was a little busy building a church. Recently a man in Louisiana was pulled over for…

And Just Like That. . .

And just like that, everything changed.  We are living in a very different world then we were a month ago.  Over the weekend we noticed how quiet the streets were, and only a third of our usual church family were out on Sunday. On Monday, as is my habit, I worked at A & W…

Time

Recently someone asked me why I wear a watch when I could find the time on my phone. The fact that I like the look of watches seemed a little shallow, so I replied: it not only tells me the time, it saves me time. They looked at me quizzically, so I elaborated.  When I…

Look, a ship

I could hardly believe my eyes.  We had just arrived in the port of Aruba and as was my custom I was up early with a cup of coffee doing some writing.  And as we came alongside the pier, there it was:  The Ryan Leet. Now that might not mean anything to you, and I’m…

Weather we like it or not

Have you picked up on the fact that winter isn’t my favourite season?  As a matter of fact winter doesn’t even rank in the list of my top favourite seasons. (which just happen to be summer, summer, summer and autumn)  But it’s not just the weather, it’s having to listen to everyone gripe about the…
