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!
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.
