Oops! Yesterday, February 23, was National Skip the Straw Day. Shall we make every day skip the straw day though?
It’s National #SkipTheStraw day 🙅♀️🍹 It sounds so easy, to refuse a straw in your drink. But there can be challenges. We’ve written a guide on how to successfu...lly train yourself and others to skip the straw on a regular basis: http://bit.ly/StopSuckingGuide In the comments below, tell us what issues you’ve come across when trying to go strawless 👇
"Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love ...intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you." -L.R. Knost

In many provinces of Canada - today is a holiday! Let's open our minds to enjoyment...
If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side. We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower.

Are you ready for Lent?
What if this #Lent we didn’t approach the practices of prayer, almsgiving, and fasting with an eye to what we can do to transform ourselves, but rather with an eye to what God wants to do in order to transform us?
We can do better....
This is a candle for Colten Bushie
For his mother and family
For his nation and community
For the justice that was denied
This is a candle against indifference
Against racism in any form
For what is decent, human, compassionate
For what should just be expected
This is a candle for systemic change
For the possibility of right relations
For healing and hope
And for never again
It's almost time for us to begin our Lenten journey...
