We’ll Take it From Here Together

One of my favourite theologians these days is David Hayward. After a lengthy career in ministry, he’s better known to many as The Naked Pastor, artist and creator of many insightful cartoons that challenge the status quo and encourage questions and dialogue. If you’re interested in knowing more – including...

Rev. Robin King – In The Tide of Easter

We’re still in the tide of Easter, a season of grappling with what it means to come face to face with a living Jesus. I know, lately it’s easy to look around and feel like it’s more like we’re still in the season of Good Friday. But no matter what’s...

Undead or Alive

How is Jesus alive? I’ve told this story more than a few times, I’m sure, but I think it bears repeating. Much likes Easter. A few years ago, a young person I know asked me if Jesus was a zombie. The presumption that zombies might be real aside, I asked...

These Days

Last year, as we approached Holy Week and Easter, we were wondering how we could make this work with no in-person church services. Or community gatherings. Or family gatherings.

In March, 2020, we began an important and difficult journey. That journey has included isolation, loss, and a lot of reflection about what’s really important. When we’ve allowed it to be, it’s been a time filled with deeply meaningful soul work, relationship building, and some much needed self examination. And...

Snakes on a Plain

There’s a pretty bizarre story about snakes in the Bible. Not the one in the garden, these snakes are out in the desert. It’s part of the story of the Hebrews being led out of Egypt by Moses and cared for by God in the wilderness. Goes something like this....

David Hayward – The Naked Pastor

David Hayward is the NakedPastor! After 30 years in the church, he left the ministry to pursue his passion for art. His work challenges the status quo, deconstructs dogma, and promotes critical thinking. Remind you of anyone? It should, because David’s art, his books, his blog, and his rabble rousing,...

Saying it again for the first time

It’s no secret that I like to re-engage Bible stories in ways that might make them speak more meaningfully to our lives today. I think we need to constantly be doing that, sometimes over and over and even over again. How else will we find what’s true in the story,...
