The Life and Death of an Ordinary Saint

I say we need more like her, but I wonder if that’s true. Maybe we already have saints like this all around us if we just had eyes to see them.

Younger Christians Are Looking for Older Saints

Younger Christians are looking for older saints. Older saints: your ministry isn’t over. We need you.

The Coming Pastoral Shortage

We’re facing a shortage of pastors. I’m encouraged by the quality of people God is raising, but we need more. So pray and mentor, trusting God to provide for the church as he always has.

The Dearth of Church Planting in Toronto

Thanks again for reading. I’m grateful.
