In the wake of the horrific mass killing in Toronto yesterday, journalists and writers are - like all of us - struggling to make sense of the senseless. People around the world reacted to the news of yesterday’s tragic events with shock, disbelief, horror. A sinking sense of "not again." The collective Canadian heart sank. "Not here."
At some level, our responses have to be because - whether we think about it consciously or not - we deeply value human life. We recognize the injustice when innocent life is snatched away.

Canada is a hockey nation. And so, when one branch of the hockey family suffers, we all grieve. Witness the outpouring of sympathy in the wake of the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. Witness the way Canadians have clung to the words of lament and prayer spoken by team chaplain, Sean Brandow. A video of Brandow’s extraordinary message--delivered at a vigil for the victims April 8--and a transcript of his words have both been published through mainstream media and shared again and again by ordinary people on their social accounts.

A 12-week preaching series every Thursday on passages from Scripture that were key to the position of the Reformers. It will be edited by Peter Robinson and published in the series Wycliffe Studies in Gospel, Church, and Culture (Wipf and Stock).
Wycliffe College is one of Canada’s largest and oldest evangelical seminaries, attracting students from diverse denominations and backgrounds from around the globe. With roots in the Anglican tradition, we train future leaders—for the Church, the academy, and the wider world—to share the good news of Jesus Christ and to live lives in his service.
This Winter term the faculty preached on portions of the Book of Exodus. It is a form of liturgical preaching. Portions of the book were selected to reflect the two seasons of the church year we will be in this academic term, Epiphany and Lent. Thus, during the season of Epiphany faculty preached on portions of Exodus having to do with ways God was manifest to Israel. During Lent faculty preached on portions of the book which follow Israel in the wilderness.
