Finding Peace

Last November, I taught a workshop to 47 Christian educators at the Children’s Ministry Conference held at Tyndale Seminary at the University of Toronto. The topic? Christian meditation with children. We talked about meditation as a type of prayer. They practiced what I taught them, and then saw how it might be introduced to children in either a church or school setting. With our current situation of anxiety and uncertainty, and families needing to stay home, meditation is a gift for all ages.

At the Feet of Jesus

A large wooden crucifix stands toward the front of the crypt sanctuary in St. Joseph’s Oratory, Montreal. While the crucifix is not central within worship, it evidently receives much attention. A striking feature of the crucifix is the worn nature of Jesus’ feet – the paint is worn away and the surface smooth from the many hands that have rested there.
