“I couldn’t help but think of the young boy in the Gospel today who brings his five loaves and two fish to Jesus. Jesus does the miracle, the boy just brings what he has to him, and lets Jesus use what he offers. It isn’t much, but it’s all he had. And that is more than enough for Jesus. You are more than enough for Jesus to do something miraculous.”
“God doesn’t just want something from you, he doesn’t want to be a burden on you, or another burden on you. Today we see that God wants something for you. If you are like me, this past 15 months has taken its toll, in some way shape or form, it’s taken its toll. If you are like me, you need to find some way to get some rest. God wants you to take some rest.”
“There has been a tremendous amount of injustice inside the church toward Indigenous peoples, towards people created in the image and likeness of God. There has been a tremendous amount of injustice in Canada towards the nations we supplanted to form our country, toward the people on whose land we now stand. And God is not okay with injustice.”
“Whatever is happening we have to be ready to proclaim and defend truth, love, justice, freedom, people’s rights and dignity. There are some things over which we cannot compromise, there are sometimes when we cannot keep silent.”
How and why can we, should we, believe?
