Hosted by RZIM apologist Cameron McAllister, Vital Signs is an exploration of the major cultural ideas, issues, and works of art that are shaping current conversations. It's not just a place to learn how to be culturally informed; it's a place to learn what's worth celebrating in contemporary life. If guarding what you pay attention to is a way of guarding the integrity of your thought, then Vital Signs aims to show you what's worth your attention, as well as what's worth talking about.

Even before the entrance of COVID-19, anxiety levels were skyrocketing in our nation. On the face of it, this seems odd as, relatively speaking, we live in an age of unprecedented wealth, convenience, and connectivity. So, what's wrong with us? In this three-part series, we'll consider anxiety by examining three major illusions of our age: 1) We're…

Though we struggle mightily with the concept of communal sin in our 21st century context, it's vital that we recover a basic understanding of wrongdoing that takes us beyond narrow individualism. How else can we account for grave systemic injustice in all of our institutions? Trying to lay the blame at a single person's feet is not only naïve, it v…

From racial hatred and ethnic "cleansing" to gross exploitation and rampant sexual abuse, we inhabit a world filled with atrocities and punctuated by unforgivable acts. Consequently, many of us experience unimaginable suffering at the hands of others. At the same time, many of us will also recognize that no healing can take place without forgivenes…

From the alarming uptick in mental illness to the increasingly hostile culture wars, ours is a culture shot through with fear and anxiety, much of it fed by a 24/7 news cycle that caters to our hunger for sensationalism. In this atmosphere, how do we avoid falling prey to constant fear and anxiety? Though it may come as a surprise, Christianity has…

How do you get around Greater Victoria? By car? By bus? Do you cycle? Maybe you like to walk. Chances are you use multiple ways to get around our region, if not all of them. More and more multimodal transportation is becoming the norm, and could be the answer to our region’s transportation woes. To dig into the transportation issues in our region w…
 
The hiddenness of God is a perennial question, particularly in apologetics circles. Though the issue is frequently explored in philosophical terms, Scripture has a great deal to say on the matter but it frames it in surprising ways. In this series, we'll explore God's hiddenness under three headings: mystery, foolishness, and expectation. This epis…

While church leaders often point to the crucial need for rest, it's a luxury that many of us simply don't have. So what do we do? In Matthew 18:28-30, Jesus makes an important distinction between physical rest and soul rest. This two-part series explores that distinction. It's my hope that you'll find encouragement here, even if your life doesn't c…
 
Anyone who has lived here long enough can tell you, Greater Victoria has changed a lot over the last 10 years. From the number of people living here, to the culture, to our demographics, there has been a noticeable shift. Which begs the question, how will our region change over the next 10 years? This month, the Victoria Foundation released the bra…

In John 2:13-22, we encounter what appears to be a fairly aggressive display of authority as Christ "cleanses" the temple, driving out the livestock and overturning the tables of the money changers. Naturally, the temple authorities want to know what gives him the right to call these shots, and they demand a spiritual sign to verify his authority. …

Every year the Victoria Foundation asks residents to rate how Greater Victoria is faring in a number of key issue areas for the Vital Signs report. And each year, one issue is consistently given the lowest rating of them all: housing. Whether it’s the rising cost of home ownership, the lack of rental housing available or the seemingly never-ending …
 
The Victoria Foundation has been publishing the annual Victoria’s Vital Signs report since 2006, but it wasn’t until 2012 that Sports and Recreation was added as the twelfth key issue area for our region. The last eight years have seen the report present a range of data connecting sports and recreation to community wellbeing. Join us as we explore …
 
American children’s rights activist Marian Wright Edelman once said, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it,” and could anything be truer when it comes to raising the next generation of leaders in our community? But when it comes to our region, how do we fare in offering lea…
 
To say that our cultural moment is judgmental is to make a point so obvious that it verges on being inane. The engine of our public discourse seems to be equal parts vindictiveness and character assassination. In this charged environment, Christians are often accused of being especially judgmental, and Scripture (the Old Testament in particular) is…

In the U.S. in particular, many people feel that we've simply outgrown Christianity. In this two-part…
