  • Finding Resurrection

  • The Point Of Our Prayers

    Brittany Beacham

    North America’s public grief ritual includes proclaiming "our prayers are with the victims." The words have become so common they’re often being deemed meaningless, especially from political lips.

  • Seriously Celebrating St. Patrick

  • Faith Over Fear

    Brittany Beacham

  • Called Up By Silence

    Brittany Beacham

    Whether in silent retreat or simply by stopping in the world’s business to listen for God’s voice, Convivium contributor Brittany Beacham writes, we can learn to follow as He beckons us forward.

  • A Future of 10,000 Villages

    Brittany Beacham

    Convivium contributor Brittany Beacham treats readers to the welcoming aroma of Mennonite deep fried raisin donuts as she explores the annual MCC Sale in Abbotsford B.C.

  • Lament For Salvation

    Brittany Beacham

    In the heart of Jerusalem on a brutally hot day, Brittany Beacham encounters renewal of the ancient Scriptural practice of lament when God’s love is felt not through modern Happy Face smiles, but in the most painful moments of human experience.
