Talk to them in person… no shot Teens today get to know people at a faster rate than ever, who needs to even ask somebody where they are from? Thanks to social media and the internet most teenagers today are top-tier detectives and can figure out most things about someone in a couple searches. Not to mention texting and Snapchatting late at night. You can know someone so well without ever looking into their eyes. The big problem here is you learning about an online version of that person, and their learning about an online version of you. Talking to them in person puts you in a vulnerable pos ..read more

Confidential

Confidential. Words are powerful, aren't they? Simply using the word "confidential" before writing my first sentences here probably caught some attention, created curiosity, or potentially even evoked some emotion of some kind. Words are powerful. Confidential is just one example. I'm sure you can think of many other single words or small phrases that cause enormous feelings or prompt significant actions. Do you find that there are some things we are discovering in our Revelation series that cause enormous feelings or have the potential to prompt significant actions? This past Sunday as we ..read more

Imagine you’re at a much anticipated theatrical performance.   You are enjoying the sights and sounds of the lobby filled with people all there for the same reason as you, the show. The lights blink 3 times, the universal signal to return to your seats the show is about to begin. There’s chatter, the orchestra is beginning to warm up with their individual routines which makes for this lovely and chaotic non-song of music that continues to build the anticipation. The curtain closes. The lights dim. Silence. It’s beginning!    The conductor takes their post. Suddenly the tympany b ..read more

It's foggy in Victoria

It's foggy in Victoria this morning.  I'm here for a conference this week, so I'm not sure if it's foggy at home right now.  Fog and clouds have a way of covering everything with a grey gloom and make it seem like the sun is somehow further away. Have you ever taken a flight and had the fascinating experience of taking off in terrible weather and then emerging from the clouds up into the very sunny and beautiful reality reigning above?  Last week we re-entered our journey through the book of Revelation. As we talked about, Revelation 4 & 5 are kind of like putting on a ne ..read more

Ag-ap-ay-tos

ag-ap-ay-tos  This is how you pronounce the Greek word used 62 times in the New Testament which is translated by many into the phrase "dearly beloved." It's repeated usage, especially in the letters of early Christian leaders like Paul, John and Peter, suggests it may have become a term of endearment when referring to brothers and sisters in Christ -the new family of faith formed around Jesus- the church.  The self-giving sacrifice of God's own life and blood placed an enormous value on the people of God, purchased and forgiven by Jesus at the cross. Truly, every follower of Jesus ..read more

Call 911!  That's what came to mind in 2.1 million occurrences in our province of BC in 2022. Almost every single one was a serious emergency that first responders needed to be deployed to.

Do you ever wish you were a kid again? I do, all the time! Imagine a life without paying mortgage payments, car payments, insurance, astronomical food and gas costs. I have to say,  over the last few years I have dealt with a bit of jealousy because as my kids have lived at home, they have accumulated a pretty nice bank account. No rent, no buying food, no phone payments, no rent, and the list goes on.   Man, what it would be like to be a kid again……   I loved being a kid.  I loved my memories of our family trips, sports, etc. Also, a lot of my good memories i ..read more

What did you hear?  A speaker I know posted on Social Media this Monday, "I'm curious. What did your pastor preach on yesterday?"  I thought it was an interesting question, and a bit scary. As a pastor and speaker, I know that there are times I can't even remember my own message on Sunday afternoon! The social media post now has nearly one hundred comments. While we all can struggle to remember all the details or even the key points of a message, most often we do retain a few important things that we felt impacted by.  This past Sunday we were blessed to have our friend ..read more

If you love me, feed my sheep…   A neighbour of ours is always dropping off goodies/baking for our kids. It’s so sweet (figuratively AND literally!). I was chatting with her husband one day and mentioned to him just how appreciated her generosity is to our kids, and how kind to go out of her way to bless them with treats. He told me a story about how she went to church when she was a little girl and the preacher was teaching from the book of John about Peter.  Do you remember the story? Peter had denied Jesus 3 times, just as Jesus had predicted. When Peter had his moment of re ..read more
