Moderator Mardi Tindal's blog: Changing the climate with prayer and action

Over the past several days I have been in Ottawa speaking with other faith leaders and political leaders about the moral and spiritual challenge of climate change. On Sunday evening I participated in such a panel at a fully public event hosted at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, and the following morning, in a full-day Interfaith Forum.

Moderator Mardi Tindal’s blog: En Paix, en prière, en espérance

“In peace, in prayer, in hope.” This line from the Rev. Wendy Jean MacLean’s poem (“There are no hills in Mystic”/« Il n’y a pas de collines à Mystic ») has me thinking that poetry is the best container for holding my memories of visiting Montreal and Ottawa (M&O) Conference this month.

Moderator Mardi Tindal's blog: What a week!

With you, I continue to pray and act from a deep sense of relationship with the people of Haiti. It’s also been a week of responding to enthusiastic (mostly) response to my letter, “Where Is the Hope after Copenhagen?” within media interviews, correspondence, and conversation.

It's GLBT Pride Day in Ottawa, and I have pics of First United Walking

It was Pride day in Ottawa, and as has been the case for several years now, First United Walked in the Parade.

 

I was dressed up as a Teddy Bear. I was going to bring a sign that said, "Meet Me on Wondercafe.ca, Marry Me at First United"  

 

However I chickened out at the last second. It turned out to be a good thing too. If I had been holding a sign I would not have been able to hug so many people.
