Finding Wisdom in Canada

by James M. Kushiner

In March I went to a meeting of American and Canadian church renewal leaders in Hamilton, Ontario. I had a little adventure enroute.

At the airport in Pittsburgh, fifteen minutes before take off I was told I needed a birth certificate or a passport if I were to fly into Canada. That a passport was needed never entered my mind. I have been to Canada perhaps twenty times, having grown up just across the river in Detroit, Michigan. Crossing the border by car without a passport was routine—a question-and-answer with a customs official, rarely a cursory search of the car.
