The Hot Seat – unveiled

The Hot Seat – unveiled

So if you missed it last Friday night, you should really feel “too bad so sad.”  We rolled out the big blue box filled with IKEA gear and transformed probably one of the ugliest spots in htown into a fabulous, sleek, hip, & happening cafe.  Singles slowly trekked across town, over the bridge, and through […]

Lesson 4: Life

Much of the lesson this week focused on what many would call “lifestyle,” and included thoughts on the Christian lifestyles physically, spiritually, and socially. I’ve found, as many, that my spiritual life and physical life are inexorably interwoven. This is true in that one often effects the other (and vice versa), but also that the […]

Indulging in Temperance

I have been in love with books since the day my mother trained my barely focused eyes on a page. Which is why I was so deeply distressed when R.G. Mitchell, Canada’s one worthwhile Christian bookstore chain, closed its doors late December, leaving a hole in my bookworm heart. However hope dawned again when I […]

Through it, countless numbers have given their lives to the Savior, and because of it, many have perished in denial of the King of kings. One constant through the ages is the ideal of faith, hope and love. Without the cross, […]

Lesson 2: Faith

Lesson 1: Love

Lesson 1: Love

The greatest of all commandments is love. Love your neighbor as you love yourself and above all, love the Lord your God, That’s the commandment given to us by Jesus. Why is it that the world today has indistinct meaning of love? We all hunger for love from the day we are brought to this […]

‘Fiery Sermon’

‘Fiery Sermon’

I came across this wonderful story that brought to light the importance of us impacting others with more of our action filled life rather than just words. A member of a certain church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the preacher decided to visit him.  It was a […]
