Every Move You Make. . .

It was an interesting observation of human behaviour.  On Saturday, I was driving to a funeral in New Brunswick when it happened.  I was going the speed limit-ish, which seemed to annoy some of the drivers behind me because several cars pulled out to pass.  What was annoying to me was that as soon as…

Let it Go!

He was probably really cute! Recently a Massachusetts family discovered that the puppy they rescued on the side of the road was actually a baby coyote. The family said they found the pup wandering and distressed on the side of the road but soon realized that it wasn’t domesticated. The Cape Wildlife Centre confirmed that…

Created as Humans

If you were to visit the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. you could visit an exhibit called The Hall of Human Origins, and you could spend the better part of a day visiting the various displays that make up the exhibit.   Now if DC isn’t on your vacation list for this year, you could…

You can run. . .

The headline was intriguing, “Canadian astronauts no longer free to rob and kill with abandon in space or on the moon.” It has been reported that buried in the 2022 federal budget is legislation that would extend Canadian criminal jurisdiction to infinity and beyond. Presumably, within the present legal framework, Canadians in space can commit…

Believing the Best

What is your first reaction when you hear an accusation about someone? Especially if you hear the accusation in the media or on social media. Too often, we allow the media the privilege of deciding for us the guilt and innocence of those featured in their stories.   Charged does not mean guilty. And while the…

Image of God

In the Beginning.  That’s where it all started and where God created all things.   Now, I have no interest in dating when that creation may or may not have happened.  Everybody has a theory. For me, it’s enough to believe that God created everything.  That this world as we know it was not an accident,…

Pray much?

I read a while ago that 58% of sports fans pray that their team will win. I’m not sure what to make of that, other than wild speculation concerning the spiritual condition of us Habs fans this year. 58 %. So, how do you think God should respond to those prayers? Is the outcome of…

A Fisherman’s Tale

I've always wondered what the Jesus story looked like through the eyes of Peter, and so I've decided to try telling it from the view of the fisherman. From my first reading of the Gospels, he was the Apostle that I most identified with. A fisherman called to become a Fisher of Men, impulsive, speaking…

Chapter 1

 “Stupid, stupid, stupid! He said I would do it and I did it.”  And then, to add insult to injury the rooster crowed, stupid bird. Could anything else go wrong?  Looking around to make sure no one saw my betrayal I looked him straight in the eye and my world fell apart. It seemed like I had…

Chapter 2

The path from the beach to the house was so familiar that I could almost walk it in my sleep and probably have. As I finally trudged around the corner, exhausted from another night fishing and saw our home I could almost feel the weight drop off my shoulders. Esther was hanging out clothes to…
