Diversity in worship, faith and service

The Summer 2021 edition of The Anchor newsletter has been published. Click here to read it.

Summer is here! Aren’t we happy for the freedom that warmer weather gives us?

As pandemic restrictions are reduced, we now can meet in greater numbers and in more spaces. The signs of renewed fellowship are all around us.

Emerging from the restrictions of the pandemic, we now find ourselves embracing diverse ways of being and doing.

We are now more aware of the need to be our neighbour’s keeper. We have had to make decisions for the common good. Braving the jab of a vaccination protects us and others from the horrendous Corona virus. Delving deeply into the issues that affect ‘other people,’ we’re beginning to better understand systemic racism and the injustice that religion has inflicted on our First Nations brothers and sisters.

We’re also understanding more clearly that doing church is much more than the regular Sunday morning Eucharist service and coffee hour. We have found new and creative ways to fellowship. Whether by Zoom on weekday evenings, in a park or in a homeless mission.


The past 16 months have afforded us the opportunity to reflect, regroup and reset. We now know that there are diverse ways of doing and being and they are all valid.

This edition of The Anchor takes a look at the diverse ways in which we are worshiping, living our faith and serving. Some of our members have transitioned from time to eternity and we have a lot to learn from their legacies.

There’s a long road ahead of us as we apply the learnings from the pandemic lockdown. The good news is that we’re all in this together!

Happy reading!

Enabling businesses and people to be successful. This is my mission, my life’s work. It’s always been what I have done wherever I’ve been employed, called to serve or to volunteer. An experienced business leader, my core values are truth, integrity, and respect. I believe that values-based leadership is critical for organizational success that is enabled by an engaged and empowered workforce. Working over the years in several senior marketing, communications, and executive leadership mandates for global, financial, healthcare, and non-profit organizations, it has been through times of transformation and difficult change that I have done my best work. In my blog posts, I share my perspectives on leadership, marketing and strategy that are based on my key learnings and observations over the years, all with the objective of helping others reach for success. In my spare time, I enjoy the beauty of nature which I reproduce in my pastel paintings.
