lamb in the city

Originally uploaded by josh lyon.

these lambs are all over our neighborhood (east side of downtown toronto)... i really like spotting them hiding under bridges, sheltering from the weather.

felted womb

Originally uploaded by josh lyon.

my wife made this beautiful art piece over an excersize ball out of a whole lot of raw and died wool - mostly shaped in the shower due to the need for a lot of hot water in the felting process!

labyrinth coffee table

this labyrinth table is in the window of a design store called 'space' on queen street east right near our house... i really like this table though it does remind me of the ikea labyrinth rug that i'm not so sure about.

prayer/wish forward

i got this prayer in an email forward explaining that you are to make a wish, prayer the prayer and then pass it on... why a prayer for contentment would be accompanied with 'wishing' is beyond me - but here's the prayer anyway:

St. Theresa's Prayer:

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that
has been given to you....
May you be content knowing you are a child of God....
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

NT Wright Revival (updated)

Originally uploaded by nathancolquhoun.

last night in toronto, 'the bish' kak NT Wright spoke at a club called revival... at an event organized by Empire Remixed. so when I arrived someone asked me if I was a big NT fan. I admitted that I'd never read anything of his and that I was really there mostly coz cool people told me about it and that I should probably go (thanks mr. rennie).

anyway, having attended and not really liking the idea of being a fan, I'd have to say I'm on my way to being converted... really appreciated his thoughts and theology, certainly a cat worth looking up and reading more of. I have a few questions regarding his answer to a question (asked by John Franklin of Imago) about the role of art in the church which I guess I'll have to email 'the Bish' about after I get a hold of and read the chapter entitled 'Beauty' from his new book. Anyone got a copy they want to lend me?

see more pics from the event here: nathan's flickr pics and/or read more about it here on nathan's blog.
