COVID Comforts: Karen Orr

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing what the BMC board and staff are reading, streaming, cooking and playing.


Water from an Ancient Well: Celtic Spirituality for Modern Life by Kenneth McIntosh, M.Div. An examination of early Christianity in the Celtic world and how it can apply to our lives today.

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson. A semi-autobiographical novel of a girl growing up in a fundamentalist household, realizing she is lesbian, trying to balance faith and identity.

The Luck of the Bodkins by P.G. Wodehouse. For pure entertainment. No one can write humour like Wodehouse.


Hot Italian Sausage Soup - great for cold winter days or rainy summer days

For the barbecue, Planked Salmon with Herbed Mayo and Dijon Slather

Cabbage Roll Casserole - Easy and nutritious, and avoids the fiddly work of making actual cabbage rolls

Chocolate Halfway Bars - When I need something sweet for dessert, I go to this recipe from my mother.


I usually have CKUA playing when I’m home, a local listener-supported radio station, always playing new and interesting music. Some “discoveries” through CKUA: Jill Barber, William Prince, Emily Triggs.
