Habakkuk Before Breakfast
Jointly authored with the Wine Before Breakfast Community (Books Before Breakfast, 2016).
“Once again, the Wine Before Breakfast community invites us to join them at their table of gathered worship. These liturgies, written in the language of longing and lament, in the voices of this community, call us to engage with the works of Habakkuk, and with the prophets and poets of our time. These words, forged in shared experience, in joy and pain, call us to join in the radical resistance of sitting and eating in the midst of a bewildering age. Be warned, this is not comfort food, yet you will be longing for more.”
– Mark Wallace, Campus Ministries Coordinator for the CRC’s Resonate Global Mission.

St. John Before Breakfast
Jointly authored with the Wine Before Breakfast Community (Books Before Breakfast, 2014).
“A book to shake us up and make us realize that God’s loving justice is the only firm ground on which anyone–or any society–can ever stand.”
– N.T. Wright

Walsh upon his retirement as Campus Minister at the University of Toronto Christian Reformed Campus Ministry.

LIVING JUSTICE AND THE CITY: Discerning the Spirit in Toronto
During the summer of 2017 our ministry teamed up with the Community Counts Foundation, Citizens for Public Justice, and Resonate Global Mission to commission “The Living Justice Project.” Two researchers, Becca Sawyer and Courtney Reeve, were sent into the city of Toronto to discern where the Spirit of God was moving for justice. They tell the story of their three months of discernment in the report that you can find below.
Empire Remixed started with Wine Before Breakfast, coffee-soaked conversation and a couple of pints in a Baptist Church-turned nightclub with N.T. Wright. Shaped by common worship, our imaginations continue to wrestle with the cultural, economic, ecclesial and political implications of a Saviour broken and bruised.
Together, we blog, write liturgies, craft sermons, and organize events.
