How Porn Fuels Rape Culture

The House will be at the Veritas Forum

On Thursday, January 23 The House will be attending the Veritas Forum event on the University of Ottawa campus.  Holly Burkhalter will be speaking about justice in a profoundly unjust world.  Ms Burkhalter has had an astonishing career and I have no doubt that she will have keen insight into a christian’s work in pursuit of justice.  Click the link below to go to the University of Ottawa Veritas Forum page for a further description of Ms Burkhalter’s work with the International Justice Mission and her topic of speech.  I hope to see you at the Alumni Auditorium on Thursday!

Contemplate: A Night of Worship & Prayer

This Saturday we will be gathering at St. Peter & St. Paul’s Church (152 Metcalfe St.) for an evening of worship and prayer. In our busy lives, whether as students or working-professionals, we often neglect contemplation. Yet this ‘Spiritual Discipline’ is one of the oldest ways in which Christians have worshiped. It’s simple really: contemplation boils down to attention. When we contemplate we are saying to God, “I give you my attention — the focus of my mind and spirit.” There will be lively worship and great fellowship. I hope to see you there.
