I am a newbie to Peace Lutheran Church. Actually, I am new to ministry in the Lutheran church as well. I was ordained in the Anglican Church of Canada and ministered in several different churches in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. I really enjoy tapping into the spiritual side of life whether kayaking on the ocean, hiking a mountain, leading a service of holy communion, or sitting with a fellow spiritual companion before a lit candle and an icon. I have explored iconography and written (painted) two icons, one of St. Michael the Archangel and the other of St. Gabriel, with the Prosopon School of Iconology; see http://www.prosoponschool.org I spent two years in training to become a Spiritual Director with the Haden Institute https://www.hadeninstitute.com and am registered with Spiritual Directors International http://www.sdiworld.org I am passionate about the faith community as a place in the global community where the divine life is shared in breathtaking and dynamic ways. I have found no better way than Godly Play as a model for spiritually forming children in the church; see https://www.godlyplayfoundation.org I feel the church needs to keep re-awakening to the divine mysteries and be a loving transformative community in the 21st century. We can take our ancient faith into the future if we are willing to give fresh expression to the Christian community; see https://www.freshexpressions.ca I welcome you to come and contribute to the expression of church we call Peace Lutheran!
