What's new in the life of the church
For a few short weeks in late March, life seemed stilled, quiet, formless. What would I do? Soon, most of my ongoing groups, boards and organizations found me through Zoom and my friends and relatives ramped up connections via email and phone calls. That was all well and good but, I felt something was missing.
Just when I needed it, I noticed an online art class available through the Neilson Park Art Centre. It was focused on Impressionism for acrylic painters. I jumped at the offer and proceeded with instruction and experimentation for the next 8 weeks every Tuesday morning.
Although this online zoom version of an art class was not ideal, it did get me out of my chair, out of the news, and out of my rational self for about 8 hrs a week in total. There is nothing like colours on fresh paper or canvas to excite me, and nothing like acrylics to give me a second (or third!) chance to get that shape I’m trying for.
Here are two of the art projects I completed.

What is the Christian Left? This is a significant question that leads to more questions: Should there be a Christian left? Why? Has there been a resurgence of the Christian left in recent times? Do we want to explore why this—a resurgence—is or may be important? What is the relationship between the Christian left and the institutional church? What role do conversion narratives—peoples' movement along the theological spectrum—play in the Christian left’s story? What kind of qualifier is ‘left’? Is it a political description? Social? Theological? Or is there an intersectional relationship between political, social, and theological when a Christian is defined as “left?”
This fully-online conference will feature an international roster of presenters on 11 panels over two days.
