By the Way: To do God’s work is to do simple things that can change the world

By Kristy Reimers-Loader on July 13th, 2019

I imagine how people have suffered events in their lives – trauma, mental illness, loss, injury, abuse – and ... Read More »

Praxis: Find your way home

By Patty Rooks on July 13th, 2019

My last outing was a bit nerve-wracking for some members in our group. Unfortunately, they decided to go hiking without any hiking gear. I quickly ... Read More »

Viva Vitality: Get to know your neighbours

By Laura Lukye on July 11th, 2019

laura.lukye@ahs.ca Our lives have become so busy, we don’t take the time to get to know our neighbours. We talk a lot about neighbourhood and community, but did you know that almost half of Canadians don’t even know their neighbours, according to an Angus Reid/Cardus survey?

By Patty Rooks on July 6th, 2019

praxis@praxismh.ca@PraxisMedHat I know that once we get into the routine of summer vacation we are looking for activities to do and perhaps even make a bit of money.
