Why you are ‘not’ a layperson

By Andrew Mills
-----------

I write this to remind you not to buy into the idea that you are layperson in the church. If you are a follower of Jesus, you are the Church. And yes, some of us have been doing it longer than others (and we should look to these people for help), but they can’t fill our role or our calling.

By Darlene O'Leary
---------

Ending poverty in Canada – just thinking of it can be overwhelming. Where do you start to find solutions to the range of problems that need to be addressed? It’s not easy. There are economic, social, and, of course, policy considerations.
