Favourite Place on CampusBeing alone in the Tyndale chapel, sensing the greatness and beauty of God as well as his nearness in the silence: "Be still and know that I am God."
Favourite Place in TorontoSitting on a patio at a restaurant on the Danforth with my wife Irene, eating Greek food and drinking strong coffee. I love seeing the wonderful diversity of people and the vibrant vitality of the city passing before my eyes.
