A Deacon’s Musing|#LestWeForget

I do not think that we are in danger of forgetting. I think we remain most conscious to honour those who have died on battlefields – known and unknown – that take men and women from their homes and families. I think we endeavour to honour those who have been injured on battlefields – known Read more…

A Deacon’s Musing|The Goal

“Keep your eyes on the goal,” he concluded with encouragement.

For those involved in the not-for-profit sector, who work in non-governmental-agencies and especially those involved in advocacy work, it is no surprise to hear that over the last several years there has been a palpable experience of a chilling relationship with the Canadian federal government.
