Some have said I am not a very orthodox or typical Christian, this is true. But I grew up and continue to live in a Canada that is multi-cultural, multi-religious, a true mosaic of God’s creation. We as a people have been blessed by the Constitution Act 1982 and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

This blessing and my mixed Canadian heritage (English-Scottish-Irish-Welsh-Norwegian-Quebecois-French-Norwegian-Ojibwa-Cree and religiously Roman Catholic-Anglican-Methodist) I am blessed with a mosaic of ways to experience the Holy Mystery, some as part of a vocation of guest, sojourner, pilgrim, student, laity, religious worker or cleric… to such diverse belief systems that build this amazing nation I call home (it is up to you to assign whatever label you happen to believe I had when I journeyed there):
