Merry Christmas, And A Halcyon New Year ! 2022

While 2021 hasn’t been the brutal Annus Horribilis that was 2020, it was still a pretty sh**ty year. The pandemic is still far from over, but I hope everyone here is staying safe and healthy and we can only hope with the dawn of a new year things would slowly improve.

Payday Loans: A Lifebuoy Amidst These Economic Uncertainties

The economy of Canada is still trying to regain its footing and bounce back fully. The uncertainty remains apparent, given the volatile prices and the still-recovering labor market. Worse, income and savings cannot suffice daily and urgent expenses at times.  Hence, it is no wonder that more people turn to higher interest-bearing loans, such as payday loans. In this article, we will talk about payday loans and their importance in the new normal.  Payday Loans in a Nutshell  Payd...

I’m a long-distance dad so Covid was terrible – but it helped me let go of my guilt

I worried so much about not seeing my son, who lives in Canada, during Covid, but then I realised that he was fine – and being very well looked afterGetting to Canada from the UK in August 2020 was a faff, as you might expect mid-pandemic. There was lots of stress – tests and isolation, rules, regulations and forms. I was doing the preparations at my mum’s. She could see I was getting upset and insisted on taking over, assuming I was being pathetic. Within five minutes, she had lost it as well. ...

What leaders can learn from Shopify founder Tobias Lütke, who turned his side hustle into a platform powering more than 1 million businesses

Tobias Lütke thinks of trust like a battery. It starts at 50% when he meets someone, and then every interaction charges or depletes the battery a little bit.Lucas Jackson/Reuters; Marianne Ayala/Insider Tobi Lütke created Shopify after businesses became interested in the infrastructure of his site.  He uses a "fly on the wall" technique to learn, piecing bits of information together like a puzzle.  He deconstructs his decisions to see the assumptions he made to better understand his choice.  ...

A moment that changed me: when my beloved teacher taught us about mortal sin

I had impressed Mr Priamo with my passion for winning. In questioning his certainty I learned the eternal value of doubt and ambiguityEven before I entered his class, I knew Mr Priamo, the sixth-grade teacher at my Catholic elementary school, as the small, powerfully built man who strutted the hallways, and especially the gymnasium, with the ease of an athletic star. In golf shirts and trousers that pulled too tight at the rear, he appeared to be in perpetual motion – an illusion enhanced by his...

The secret to great sex? It’s not what you think …

There’s more to good sex than complicated positions or wild lust. The authors of a groundbreaking study explain what really makes it greatFar from what films and TV shows might tell us, truly magnificent sex has very little to do with daring feats of seduction or screaming orgasms. In fact, according to the latest research, erotic intimacy is more a state of mind than a physical act.In a recent study, Magnificent Sex, psychologist and sex therapist Dr Peggy J Kleinplatz and her colleagues at Ott...

Reasons to Pray for — and Possibly Come to — Toronto

I can think of a few reasons not to move to Toronto to pastor or serve. It’s expensive. It’s the second most expensive city in Canada. It’s still fairly low on the list compared to other cities, but most people who live here would tell you it’s costly, which makes it hard for churches to find pastors. It’s secular. Jared Wilson recently tweeted: One thing I’ve learned in traveling to preach the last 12 years is that every city in America is the least churched, most diverse, fastest g...
