“Dear Lord, change me and use me. Change and use Union Church.” That prayer, which many of us have promised to pray for forty-five days, is already changing lives. If you haven’t started this spiritual adventure, please do. One woman warned me that this is a very dangerous...

Last week Apple lowered the price of iPhone battery replacement and admitted their programs slowed down older phones and drained the batteries at a rapid rate. As an older Apple phone user—actually an older user of a relatively newer iPhone—I sometime feel slow and drained. Even...

2017 has been an eventful year of change and transition for Union.  It was the proverbial best of times, worst of times—at times.   The faith and resilience of Union’s people have been an inspiration to me. We have a growing group of people who never worshiped at 22A...

The past few months I have been praying for friends looking for new jobs.  What I have discovered is that my friends do not enjoy waiting.  They want (and in some cases need) quick answers from organisations and companies that take their time.  For two of them, the wait is over...

Today is American Thanksgiving.  (A Canadian member reminded me that the first North American Thanksgiving was celebrated in Canada in 1578 by Sir Walter Frobisher.  This was way before the Pilgrims.)  Last Sunday, Anto in his debut sermon, reminded us that thanksgiving is always...

“I thank my God every time I remember you…because of your sharing in the Gospel from the first day until now.” I borrow Paul’s words to the church at Philippi to express the gratitude to God I feel as we work together at Union. The move has been a massive dislocation and...
