Losing to Win

This summer, I’ve been pondering the meaning/reason of life a lot. At the marriage of a friend in July, I realized that, to quote my journal, “Marriage is … the coming together of two people to serve God together—him, whatever way God called him; and me, helping him. It’s not about me… it’s about servingContinue reading “Losing to Win”

The World is Still Worth Saving

We all know and love Anne Shirley. The red-headed orphan with the optimistic worldview and golden heart of love. Sometimes, we even incline to laugh a little at Anne and her rose-coloured ideals. “So innocent,” we say. “So simplistic. So childlike.” Yet do you remember what Anne’s life really was, while she created this perspectiveContinue reading “The World is Still Worth Saving”

It’s Easy to be a Pharisee

It is not, however, easy to write this post. It’s been sitting on my mind for a while, and sitting on my heart for longer, and then sitting on my list-of-posts-to-write, and finally sitting as an open tab on my desktop, waiting for me to finally speak up and admit it. You see, I’m aContinue reading “It’s Easy to be a Pharisee”

Bonne Saint-Jean! // A Tribute on Québec’s 488th birthday

June 24th is la St-Jean-Baptiste (Saint John the Baptist’s day)—traditionally, Québec’s provincial holiday, or, as the Québécois call it, la fête national, the national holiday. (Good luck convincing them Canada Day is la fête national, or rather, don’t try). It’s a day of hearty merrymaking, during which people come together to shop small businesses inContinue reading “Bonne Saint-Jean! // A Tribute on Québec’s 488th birthday”
