For Thanksgiving weekend, Stephen will be talking about the problems and the power of being grateful. Praying for a favour may mean something bad happens to someone else (no rain on my parade, but rain on yours). So is being grateful for good fortune really viable? But there is another dimension to gratitude which can turn your life around, one where spiritual traditions from around the world have been practised for millennia, and which can work even in this secular age. Call it "the Power of Thanks". To register for this event, please click here https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/soul-table-presents-the-power-of-thanks-tickets-75490930405
Rev. Stephen Milton arrived at Lawrence Park in June, 2019. He comes to ministry from a career in documentary films. You may have seen some of his work on National Geographic or the Discovery Channel. He comes with a passion for creating new ways to explore spirituality, which will appeal to people who aren’t interested in regular Sunday morning church services. Stephen will be leading our Soul Table gatherings in the fall, bringing a rich media palette to the meetings, and its online presence. Stephen is also playing a large role in supervising the direction of our children and youth programs, working closely with parents, teachers and kids to make spirituality relevant to 21st century children.
When Stephen’s not at church, he is riding his bike, playing guitar, meditating, cooking and watching science fiction movies. He is married to Amanda, in a blended family with six kids.
