I was completely amazed by the sunrise over the prairies yesterday.

An overwhelmingly large red flaming orb rose in the sky bringing an golden red aura over everything and was surrounded by enormous rainbows formed by the frost in the -27C air

I'm so thankful to have seen that beauty and will cherish it for as long as I can.

Blood diamond? Well most of our natural resources come to us through conflict. Oil & gas pipelines, the rare Earth minerals in our phones are all obtained through coercion, conflict and blood.

We fill our cars with blood oil, heat our homes with blood gas and I am typing this on my blood phone.

Maybe we need to start talking this way.

I am so deeply thankful for all the years of work that has gone into making more and deeper barrier breaking relationships possible.

I'm also happy for some good news in connection to today.

Where can I find that amazing :baby_yoda: emoji!?

I am happy to bring with me all I have learned and will continue to learn from the Elders and Knowledge Keepers of this land, the Creator and ceremony of a life giving spiritual tradition.

I pray that we may begin to bless one another through the gifts of the Creator and in the spirit of wîtaskêwin and wîcitowin

I have had an amazing year working for in the church. The burden of healing and hope does not rest with the survivors alone and I am thankful for all the new opportunities, relationships and changed hearts. I pray for the changes and relationships ahead as we learn to share the incredible benefits of this land in the spirit of our treaty covenant.

Also I knew this intensive focus on this work would come to a close and now is the time. I begin on Sunday at a new parish

Is Black Friday to Christmas what Good Friday is to Easter?

Unfortunately I think come Christmas day the worst of the world still wins out.

I love waking up to a fresh blanket of snow! Crisp cool white under a cold blue sky.

Winter wonderland, here we come

Stable snap update delayed. Oh well, better safe than sorry.

For no particular reason I'm very much looking forward to a snap update today.

Trick or Treat?

So "Songs for the Holy Other" a collection of hymns Affirming The LGBTQIA2S+ Community is a thing and I gotta say, I very much love it.

To me it seems a clear effort to be faithful, contextual in the best way, scriptural, thoughtful, inspiring and a bit humorous at times.

I'm anticipating the snow-pocalypse; that time of year, when after watching the sidewalks and bike lanes fill up since spring, the snow comes and all the people disappear.

I will smile at all the commuting students, scooter riders and patio goers for the next few weeks because the next few months are about to become very cold and lonely on the morning commute.

While these chestnuts and husks are fun for the kids to play with I really wish the University had planted an edible variety

I had such a great birthday, unfortunately I'll have to wait another whole year to enjoy another
