The hard news is that, even when trust is reparable, fixing it is a whole lot of work.

Martin Elfert

The Rev. Martin Elfert is an immigrant to the Christian faith. After the birth of his first child, he began to wonder about the ways in which the Divine was at work in the world. Shortly thereafter, he joined Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver, BC, where he and his new son were baptized at the Easter Vigil in 2005 and where the community encouraged him to seek ordination.

  1. Martin, you made a lot of sense until you got to the final paragraph and sprayed us with a cluster bomb of “god” claims. I count six mentions of the imaginary deity in four sentences.

    Getting back to trust, what is so trustworthy about something so ridiculously abstract and indescribably and frankly useless (um..god) that it can’t possibly talk to you and me in the same way?

    Spectacularly disappointing to hit that last paragraph of nonsense and white noise.
