For Ian Sowton at 90

For Ian Sowton at 90

Some saints were farmers
like Serenus the gardener who shares your day, dear Ian.
They ploughed the land like billy-o
scattering the seed where fall it will
and harvesting the growth, if any,
in due season, tares and all.

And some moved kings and potentates,
and prelates too, as did bird-preaching Frances,
pushing Sultans, Popes, and a priest or two
to grant his brothers space; their kingdoms peace;
their people just a crêche or two
to see the mystery unfold.

At memorial for dead homeless, ‘it’s a lot of John Does’

With her forehead resting in her right hand, Rachel Robinson quietly wept as her friend was included among the names of the dead read out at Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity on Tuesday.

Robinson had come to the church to take part in a monthly memorial for people who have died from issues tied to homelessness, including exposure, poverty, violence, illness, addiction and neglect.

Midwives of Loving Justice

The Advent Planning Team is Beth Baskin, Clara Pasieka, Jim Houston, Jo Connolly, Leonard Desroches, Luc Desroches, and Sherman Hesselgrave. The team set this overall theme of Restless Waiting to reflect the unsettled times of our community and the wider world. Advent is traditionally a time of anticipating for the Birth of Jesus, which is usually an excited waiting. There is also anxious waiting, such as that of a refugee family who wait for their travel documents. There is concerned waiting of those who will be launching into a new phase of life. Together this holy Advent season we will explore different kinds of waiting and a variety of ways to comfort and nourish our souls and faith community

Today, the Fallen Angles lead us into midwifery of loving justice…
