Recently, there has been much sarcasm and jesting by numbers of Americans that they were going to move to Canada when the results of this election were announced (although I am certain some of this was probably real).
After hearing this I thought, “Hey, maybe it would be good for Americans to hear a little about the way Canadians think about the US.” You might be thinking, “Who cares?” Hey, you might be right. :) But there is a statement I have been saying for years that goes like this: Where the UK was yesterday, Canada is today, and the States (Without God’s intervention) will be tomorrow. For this reason, I think it is helpful for American Christians to better understand the culture of Canada because in ten or fifteen years this is what your nation might become.
In part one of my response to this, I posted Ten Things Canadian Christians Should Remember About the US After This Election. The intention of this post is to do anything but lecture. I love the US and throughly enjoyed the decade that I spent there. But as the years roll along, immigration in the US will continue to grow (although perhaps less so in the future under this new administration) and as someone who has spent half my life in the US and half my life in Canada, I thought it might be helpful to note some of the ways US Christians can better understand Canada (thus perhaps better understanding other cultures and their own future cultural as well). So here we go…
