• Our timidity in the face of God's abundance

    My youth had both its strengths and its weaknesses. I grew up on a farm in heart of the Canadian prairies, a second-generation immigrant. Our family was a large one and the small farm we lived on gave us enough to live on, though just enough. There were never any extras.

  • Disciples with many faces

    In a new book entitled “Jesus of Nazareth,” famed German Scripture-scholar Gerhard Lohfink describes how people in the Gospels related to Jesus in different ways.

  • May your Kingdom Come, But not Yet

    A friend of mine likes to humor about his struggles in growing up.

  • Walking on water and sinking like a stone

    Faith isn't something you ever simply achieve. It's not something that you ever nail down as a fait accompli.

  • Searching for the right fuel

    Sometimes everything can seem right on the surface while, deep down, nothing is right at all.

  • Suicide: Reclaiming the memory of our loved one

    Each year I write a column on suicide. Mostly I say the same thing over and over again, simply because it needs to be said. I don’t claim any originality or special insight, I only write about suicide because there is such a desperate need for anyone to address the question.

  • Robert Moore on human energy

    Few thinkers have influenced me as profoundly as Robert L. Moore, a scholar who has spent almost 50 years studying human energy from the perspective of psychology, anthropology and spirituality.
