As Vanessa prepares to go on maternity leave, please join us in welcoming our new Interim Program Director, John-Paul. Below they both share their thoughts on the year ahead...

Recovering respect for those in politics

Should we consider all politicians to be untrustworthy? Should we be cynical of politics as a whole? At the October 23rd Theology on Tap East at the Bear Pub in Pickering, Bishop McGrattan tackled these and other misconceptions in his address about the importance of voting preceding the October 27th municipal election.

Serving God in Guyana

Ashley is a young adult volunteer lay missionary with Scarboro Missions. Faith Connections had the privilege to meet Ashley while she was in formation here in Toronto this summer. We thought some of you may like to hear about Ashley’s experience thus far on mission. She writes:

Zebras with their black and white stripes all have a distinct unique pattern about themselves, sort of like a fingerprint that sets them apart from the others. When a baby zebra is born, it walks around the mother several times to imprint the pattern of stripes into its mind so that when the herd starts to move, the baby zebra will be able to recognize its mother. Therefore, the longer the baby spends with the mother, the easier it will be to recognize her in different circumstances.
