    How was church today?

    My wife and I have been going to a new church since September. She found it and went by herself a couple of times. I joined her after a while, and we have been enjoying it a lot. It is a congregation of the Mennonite Church Canada - a progressive Mennonite denomination. They keep many of the...

    Room For All

    Today is my last day of work this year - got vacations from Monday till January 2. On Wednesday I had my last final exam at University - I took five courses, all at night after work. I have never been so busy before, and I need this break. Work is going much better than I imagined, though, and...

    Room For All

    I think I last hanged out here by late September/early October. It was already cold when comparing to other provinces... Now it is really cold, lol.

    Room For All

    Dear friends, I have been swamped - much more than I imagined - and I do miss being active here. I wish a Merry Christmas, or a Happy Holiday season, to all of you + your families and loved ones. From frigid Winnipeg, my best wishes!

    Congratulations on your citizenship, @Mrs.Anteater ! The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is fantastic and it'd be good to meet you in Winnipeg! We have some other interesting historical sites here, too. I could arrange a weekend tour with friends.

    Liturgy

    If I ever become a Minister, that's what I envision as being my style. I cannot test it at the assisted-living residence for obvious reasons, though.

    Is the BIBLE is THE WORD of GOD? In 7 minutes - Dr. Ravi Zacharias at University of Illinois

    And I'll add that the idea that Scripture is the Word of God is not only an innovation but also a heresy.

    Is the BIBLE is THE WORD of GOD? In 7 minutes - Dr. Ravi Zacharias at University of Illinois

    Jesus Christ is the Word of God. It's in Genesis, John, et caterva. The Scripture is the written witnessing of the people of God about God's self revelation(s) culminating in the coming of Christ. Scripture is infallible and authoritative in matters of faith, and that's it. Not historically, and...

    Housing

    I agree it must be locally-managed, and I think it should be funded equally by the 3 spheres. Regarding the difficulty to forecast the rental market, this is a problem, indeed, and there will always be some degree of inaccuracy. That happens with the Bolsa Familia (family 'bursary') in Brazil...

    Housing

    That's the thing. When people are given money instead of a social housing complexes, you have way more democratic and interesting neighbourhoods.
