A crisis of faith and plumbing

Camp Valaqua out-trip leader Jared Bourn prepares for another day of paddling on the North Saskatchewan River.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

A Mennonite artist in the Canadian landscape

Paul Tiessen and Hildi Froese Tiessen sign copies of their new book, Woldemar Neufeld’s Canada: A Mennonite Artist in the Canadian Landscape 1925-1995, on Jan. 23 at the Gallery on the Grand, Kitchener, Ont., within sight of several of Neufeld’s subjects—the Bridgeport Mill and the site of the original Bridgeport bridge over the Grand River.

A cornucopia of events and exhibits in Waterloo Region has celebrated the centenary of artist Woldemar Neufeld’s birth.

Abundance in times of need

Sometimes preaching and hearing about God’s abundance is harder than one might expect. Take, for example, Jan. 17, the Sunday after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. On that Sunday, pastors and congregations who use the Revised Common Lectionary will have read John 2:1-11, the story of Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana.
