    It’s the season for recreation, travel, and the cottage. Church and God may be far from your thoughts. But because God created summer, your vacation destination, and even you, maybe you should give Him more attention.  

    Ottawa Sun article on Syria July 3

    In 2010, I visited Syria as the Chair of the Canadian branch of the Catholic Near East Welfare
    Association (CNEWA Canada). The country’s beauty, the friendly relations between Christians
    and Muslims, and the tranquility there struck me. No one I met would have imagined that the country would slip into a vicious civil war only a few months later.
