Mennonites and Prairie Anglicans subject of two latest articles

leave a comment »

Two new history articles out: “Modern Mennonites: Building on one of Canada’s Founding Faiths”  is out in the Christian Herald. “125 At St. Augustines”, appears in The Anglican Planet.  

The Christian Herald is available in Southern Ontario. TAP is available throughout Canada and Online.

As these are independent Canadian publications, budgets can be tight. TAP, in particular, needs an influx of cash to keep paying its bills. But, I’m sure the publishers of both papers would be delighted if you subcribed!

Christian Herald Prison Ministry Insert

with one comment

The March 2011 Christian Herald, distributed in Ontario’s GTA region, includes an insert which deals with solutions to Canadian prison issues, including restorative justice. My column “Transforming Canadian Prisons:Canadian Christian Heritage” highlights the work of three great Canadians who happened to be people of strong Christian faith –George Brown, John Diefenbaker, and Agnes McPhail –and puts the lie to the media and political myth that ‘the American style Christian Right’ or a tough on ‘crime agenda’ has anything to do with Evangelical (Protestant, Catholic or Anglican Canadian)  doctrine in Canada. The visions of Father of Confederation, George Brown,  Prime Minister Diefenbaker, and Canada’s first female Member of Parliament, Agnes McPhail were anything but ‘tough on crime’ or ‘eye for an eye. ‘ Their goals were restoration and merciful justice.
