Item is a PDF file consisting of 119 pages of the unedited manuscript of More Faithful Than We Think: Stories and Insights on Canadian Leaders Doing Politics Christianly. In this manuscript, Mackey shows how Christians in the public wrestle with political ideologies and realities. The manuscript was based on material previously published in the author's columns: Capital views, OttawaWatch and Doing politics Christianly.
The fonds consists of articles written for the OttawaWatch publication. These articles were not published, and are described as the “faith-political interface” as observed during Lloyd Mackey years working in the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery. The articles reflect the concept of biblical resolution, management, and studies in the areas of collaborative governance through Lloyd’s reporting on the activities of faith-based organizations. In addition, there is a series that contain unpublished manuscripts and personal writing.
