  1. And if we take your idea to its logical conclusion, society will tie itself in knots trying to prevent even one death - which is of course impossible. Seriously, please stop trolling with the Covid posts.
  2. When you figure out how to end death, let us know. Otherwise let's stop pretending that death is not part of life.
  3. And how many of these were true medical cases, with people presenting sick enough to be admitted to hospital? Please stop pushing liberal opinions here.
  4. Yeah, you can see that here. Alberta is traditionally very conservative (think Texas level), except for the cities might be more liberal, and the heavily student areas around the universities are more socialist. In the last election, you could clearly see the strongly immigrant-settled areas of our major cities by the areas that voted socialist.
  5. They may not understand the significance of candle-lighting for the dead, or in front of icons - it dates from pagan times. But that significance is still there. I consider the candle-lighting in Orthodox/Catholic Churches to be idolatry. And you do realize that Orthodox doctrine is heretical to the point that people who truly believe it are not saved, and thus not Christians? There may be some present in those 'churches' who have been saved despite that, but they should be coming out as per Scriptural directive.
  6. Both of these church light candles in front of icons, making them a prayer/offering to the icon (which then makes it a kind of idol). I like a candle-light service as much as the next person, but candles are a form of light - nothing more.
  7. Preaching/teaching is not necessarily a pastor-only job, so those preaching/teaching are not necessarily limited to pastoral requirements, whatever they may be. Teaching in particular may done by women (to other women or children), so that obviously would not be linked to the position of pastor.
  8. I don't know if we maintain better or not, although we wouldn't see many fires in southern AB or SK due to lack of continuous trees and high population centres. I suspect this map is only showing US data. These won't match the data above, as they're current, but here's today's fire map for BC: https://governmentofbc.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/f0ac328d88c74d07aa2ee385abe2a41b And here's Alberta: https://wildfire.alberta.ca/wildfire-status/status-map.aspx This was actually a quieter year for wildfires up here - either that or Covid took over all the news. We'v
  9. You could put together a temp page until you find more info. "This church was started by so-and-so in the mid-___. In ___, Pr. DePriest...."
  10. Good for them. You wouldn't contact trace or provide minute-by-minute coverage for a nasty flu - good on them for not pretending this is the end of civilization as we know it.
  11. I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, just that the likelihood of it being serious is low enough that I don’t believe it is worth the measures taken. I really agree with Luanne’s assessment there. And honestly, if I can’t find places to laugh at it all, I’ll go insane with frustration at what the governments are doing to our liberties - and how much people are letting them.
  12. Based on our averaged stats (so including all the people over 80 who have died), I have a slightly better chance of drowning than dying of Covid. Surprisingly, the government has not instituted warning signs or snorkels around bathtubs.
  13. I'm with Jim-Alaska - I think it's a non-issue. A more pertinent question might be - should churches provide tax receipts?
  14. That is a cute little international airport! Your website looks very sharp. I want to visit Vancouver Island one of these days, and if the borders allow, was thinking it might be fun to drop by for a visit.
