Swerve magazine endorsement

“John Van Sloten finds divine revelation in a cup of cappuccino and at an NHL hockey game, but he’s far from naive; indeed, his brand of faith is as deep and expansive as his joy is infectious. These are the profoundly humble, intelligent, yearning ramblings of a seeker with wide open eyes and the courage to shove aside conventions of church-culture to discover grace and goodness. “

“Van Sloten manages to turn everyday events such as getting on a plane, watching the Discovery Channel and listening to a Beatles’ song into startling acts of love and hope.”

Jacquie Moore, Senior Writer, Swerve magazine, The Calgary Herald

Hallowed be thy game

Hockey is a unique product of Canada’s divine cultural calling — and one of its best.

This Sunday a sacred ritual will play out.

And the faithful will gather from sea to sea to sea. Congregating on the edges of our couches, eyes glued to our sets, we’ll get caught up in an ecstasy, lost in a glory. And for a few rapturous moments we’ll experience what can only be described as heaven on earth.

By John Van Sloten for the Vancouver Sun.
