His most recent paper, “Changing evangelical minds on climate change,” was published in Environmental Review Letters (2019), and referred to in the prestigious Physics World magazine. In 2020, he received the STAO Emeritus Award for his years of involvement in science education.
Favourite Place on CampusInside: sitting in the chapel, listening to beautiful music or to the Word of God read and explained, or participating in singing, while having the sun shine through the stained glass windows causing beautifully coloured patterns inside. Outside: watching salmon jump in the river behind the campus, amazed at the wildlife still in the heart of Toronto, while listening to the sound of the little waterfall and breeze in the trees.
Favourite Place in TorontoHigh Park, where you can do a variety of walks, on the flat or up and down hills, in valleys or by the lake, where you can take children for special outdoors activities, and where you can always have an inexpensive meal or snack at the Grenadier Restaurant afterwards!
