Learning about Creation Care in South Asia

Creation Care is an important part of World Renew’s work in several countries around the world. In Bangladesh, many of these projects deal with how humans interact with the land agriculturally. This year, for example, World Renew is involved in the development of floating gardens that help farmers adapt to devastating flash floods caused by climactic variations.

Three Weeks Until CFGB Sunday!

This week we travel 12,000 km to Nazaret, a community in north-eastern Nicaragua. Lucia Méndez, a mother of four, is part of World Renew’s food security project in Nazaret, in partnership with Accion Médica Cristiana (AMC) and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Through this project, Lucia is learning how to rotate crops, make better use of her land, and prepare her own organic fertilizers, compost and pesticides.

Irrigating Crops in Mozambique

Mozambique’s population is growing at an annual rate of 2.5 percent. This has put pressure on the country’s food resources, which currently cannot meet the increase in demand. Unless prompt strategic measures are taken to increase production rapidly, food aid or commercial food imports on a large scale will be inevitable.

Doing Justice in Ottawa

When I became a Canadian, one of the most moving parts of the ceremony was when our group of would-be citizens from around the world stood as one and recited the oath together. The staff from Citizenship and Immigration Canada emphasized that it was very important for us to say the words out loud rather than silently mouthing the words—so important so that they actually walked around to check that we were making sound as we spoke.

Half the Picture

But as 2016 draws to a close, looking at the year in review presents us with a bigger picture. We may feel painfully aware that the problems our children are inheriting are possibly too great for them to bear. Our children hold such amazing potential. How have they been hampered by problems not of their own making? Do we realize how indispensable they are? How can we encourage them and guide them? ]]>*/ ]]> */

The Faces of Hunger

Here, in Malawi, those two problems often do walk hand in hand. The people in this part of Africa have suffered from flooding in 2015 which severely depleted their crops. Furthermore, in 2016, the sun relentlessly baked down on the remaining seeds which were harvested from the previous year. This has totally wiped out any possibility of growing food.

Advent 2016: Proclaim

The gospel Jesus proclaims is that in God’s economy everyone will be fed, but we have to be willing to share from the riches that God has given us. In order to do that we have to stop and recognize the goodness that God has given us in our lives.

Advent 2016: Love

Falling in love is one of the most profoundly spiritual experiences a person can have. By falling in love we discover our capacity for selflessness. We experience what it means to entrust ourselves, our souls and bodies, to another. When we fall in love as God does, we too will ultimately “stretch out [our] arms of love on the hard wood of the cross,” just as Jesus did.
