Love Is Moving magazine shares insight on the topics and questions Christian young adults across Canada are engaging with. We tell stories of hope, beauty, diversity, and creativity that will inspire and challenge the faith of millennial and Gen Z Christians.

We amplify the voices of emerging young adult creatives. We welcome submissions by writers who love asking questions and engaging with topics millennial and Gen Z Christians are grappling with.

What we’re looking for

We publish essays that combine personal narrative with societal and theological reflections, profiles of Christian creatives in Canada, poetry that explores the Christian experience, and reviews of music albums, books, films, podcasts, or YouTube channels that can inform and enrich the faith of our readers. 

We’re also looking for stories about events or initiatives in your community or church that will inspire young adults with the ways the Church in Canada demonstrates God’s love.
