How Christian Denominations see each other

This is pretty darn funny and true. Click on the picture to see it larger

Is it possible that God cares WAY less than we do?

I think Grace is WAY bigger than we give it credit for

"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity."

My 3 reasons why "Back to Church Sunday" is important

We're calling this Sunday at Freedom House ... Back to Church Sunday. We're taking one week specifically to create an "easy in" for those who have been MEANING to try church again AND using it as a challenge to think through who WE'VE been meaning to invite to church... and actually do it

There are many reasons I believe in The Church. But a few of the most recent simple ones that have been pulsating through my head are:

1) God LOVES it when people get together in His name to collectively get closer to Him. There are many shapes and sizes... but faith in God was never meant to be a solo flight.

2) Just as Pascal identified the "God shaped hole" that we all have inside us... I believe that cities have a "Church shaped hole." There are issues that don't seem to be able to be solved because it's the job of The Church. When The Church is full, active, healthy and mobilized... it becomes an influential force for good unlike any other in a city.

3) Jesus needs new PR. We all need to remember that none of us are perfect and we're all in this together.

Questions about what it might be like? Check out this video.

This Sunday at Freedom House is our "Back to Church Sunday". There is nothing special about it. It's just an excuse to remind ourselves that all it takes to re-engage with God is to say YES. I'd love to see you Sunday morning at 10:45 in the Market Square Mall. Take a chance by showing up and bringing a friend.

What are your 3 reasons why "Back to Church Sunday" is important?

Meet Tim Hudak

I was just watching the Jays game recovering from a night serving on the streets and I saw my first real "meet Tim Hudak" commercial. There are 3 of them and they are very very well done ads. I think I like Tim and hope to meet him someday. I will be voting for him and Michael St Amant locally.

You know what I love about Canada, Ontario and Brantford? Everyone who runs for every party are GOOD men and women. Locally, Liberal Dave Levac has served our city passionately for years. He's a kind, hard working, exemplary man and I'm honored to have such a good relationship with him. Michael St Amant is a good man with a passion to serve. As is Brian Van Tilborg. As is Tim Hudak. As is Dalton McGuinty. As is Andrea Horvath.

And whoever wins... it is my job and COMMITMENT to honor, pray for, encourage, build up instead of tear down, serve and do everything in my power to make them successful at their job as leader.

We should never forget to thank God during election seasons for making "Our land glorious and free" and filling it with such good free... good... people who care enough to stick their neck out and speak what they believe systematically. There is a not a callous dictator or a single person that could ever NEAR the word "scary" that has been on a ballot in my voting lifetime.

God bless the nation of Canada.

Teachin' at Freedom House

Had the chance to preach this morning at Freedom House. This week, the world lost YET another hockey enforcer named Wade Belak to suicide. What lessons can we learn that relate to our everyday lives?

There's a secret about healing... that really shouldn't be much of a secret at all.
