~ by Randy Bushey See to it that no-one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy… (Colossians 2:8). It’s hard to think of 2 more different apostles in the early church than Paul and John. Whereas Paul could be bombastic, confrontational and scathing in his rebuke (i.e. evident in Galatians), John was the Apostle…

~ GUEST BLOGGER Rev Richard White A young man needs to see fatherhood modeled. As a young man I didn’t want to be like him my earthly father – dishonest at work,  unfaithful in his marriage, abusive, and often dismissive of his two sons.  Then my father-in-law entered my life. Ted was honest, hardworking, faithful,…

~ by Randy Bushey Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11). Ever wonder why we celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25th?? Yup, the cynics are correct: because it was the date of a pagan festival. I can hear some of…

-by Dave Kinsey Sacrifice: an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy. Praise: the expression of respect and gratitude as an act of worship. Recently I was reading through the “prayer” section of a hymnal in preparation for Awana Canada’s Day of Prayer. I…

by Randy Bushey ~ Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him (Luke 2:25). Simeon is an enigmatic figure in the biblical Christmas story. We know almost nothing about this man: details of his family, his…

by Randy Bushey ~ Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).  The foundation of biblical Christian faith is said to contain 3 imponderables. The first two are eternity – how can we understand time without…
