Together with all Canadians, we grieve with the people of La Loche, Saskatchewan after last Friday’s tragedy that left four people dead and seven injured. Police have charged a 17-year-old young man with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder in the January 23rd home and school mass shooting. What most ...read more
My friend Cesar who works at a very reputable modeling agency got a rather zany call earlier this year. A couple had selected from their portfolio a number of male and female models from which they would like to obtain sperm and eggs. They were willing to pay large sums of money for this perfect ...read more
We all know of the rising popularity of “micro-breweries”, but have you heard of  “micro-ministries”? I’ve been brewing faith out of my living room with a “micro-ministry” for the past seven years. It’s a little flavor I started called Bibles-N-Brew. Bibles-N-Brew is a group of Christian men that meet in my living room every other ...read more

As Peter is about to strike the high priest’s servant with a sword, Christ reprimands him and says: “Do you think that I cannot call upon my Father and he will not ...read more
The people of Caritas Panama have taken up the END HUNGER campaign to another level with this beautiful and moving song, LEVANTO MI VOZ POR QUIEN NO TIENE PAN (I raise my voice for those who have no bread). The international campaign hinges on a very simple premise: There is enough food in the world ...read more
Ten years ago when I first started doing media presentations in schools, I’d ask the students, “what is media?” and they would talk about TV and films. Sometimes a student would mention news media or even video games. Today when I do the same presentation, all students can think about is social media. Times have ...read more
By Mark Matthews, our Salt + Light Hour Hollywood Undercover Missionary My co-workers and I got this crazy idea into our heads recently that we needed to visit a Goth Bar.
