Hey Readers!

Most of the letters that come into the Father Knows Best mailroom concern both big and challenging subjects, stuff that’s impossible to respond to in just a few words. I’m grateful for that; this column is only as good as your questions. Every now and again, however, we do get questions which allow for briefer responses. I’ve been saving them up. This week, therefore, I present Father Knows Best’s Annual One-Sentence Answers to Your Questions.

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.
