Above the Rest: Power, Sex and Sexuality in the Catholic Church by Merv Michalyshen

Above the Rest is a provocative new book presenting a “lay person” perspective of an anxious Catholic Church bureaucracy, a clerical caste of privilege, which manifests controlling power, secrecy and a resistance to conform to a fast-paced and changing world.

The author’s three-year mission service in Africa became an enlightening and inspirational experience, and the genesis for the book. Being immersed in a culture of poverty and simplicity restored the true meaning of the lessons of the First Sermon on the Mount – the Beatitudes.

The traditional church in all its hierarchy has lost its focus and it is just a matter of time when contemporary challenges will manifest new ways of becoming a spiritual church. We are not waiting for change – it is already in progress. Learn more about the book here.

Above the Rest: Power, Sex and Sexuality in the Catholic Church is available for $18.99 plus GST by going to our "Order Form" page.

Except My Love For You

Gordon Strachan had it all. Now all he has is the Minimum List - less than seventy items; the minimal number of possessions he figures a man needs to survive and be content.

Except My Love For You is a love song to a generation and to the different paths our lives can take.

A companion collection of original songs the author has dubbed "a musical soundtrack to the life of the characters" has been recorded by the Meadowlark Orchestra. The songs are available at
