Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz clicked her heels and stated, “there is no place like home.” It’s true, and the sentiment of home seems to be a theme this week. Steven Kim was sent home from the hospital. Theresa Cheung and a group of 15 went to minister at a seniors' home...

My favourite verse about the church is found in Acts 2:42-47. In this text we see the early church focused and intentional on studying the word of God, on praying for one another, on building community and ministering to those who had need. Being the church means "rejoicing with those who...

In June, I traveled to Florida to train to become a Stephen Leader. It was a positive and encouraging experience. Since 1975, over 600,000 people from all walks of life have been trained as Stephen Ministers –that is, lay caregivers who, in turn, have brought God’s healing love to...

Since my sermon on Psalms 23 a number of people have shared what “the Lord is my shepherd” means to them. Others thanked me for the illustration about my deaf and blind dog Minnie. It is clear we have a dog-loving congregation, so my sermon was about our God and my dog. That...

Are you being pursued by God’s love?This Sunday we focus our attention on Psalm 23.  I encourage you to read it once again this week and reflect on what is the most popular Psalm of them all.  A new insight for me was a new translation of verse 6.  Instead of...

In Wednesday’s Summer Psalms class someone shared a word: ”Magnificant.” He said a friend put together two words: “magnificent” and “significant.” It calls to mind, Mary’s Magnificat (Latin for magnifies), as in “My soul magnifies” the...

My new word for the week is “God-incidence.” Too many “coincidences” have happened to me in too short a time span. Maybe this happens often but I am too self-other-than-God consumed to notice. A recent preacher mentioned Brother Lawrence and his spiritual classic...

“I didn’t realise I belonged to such a big church,” was my favourite comment from last Sunday. It was great to get everyone together at one time and place. Last week’s joint service was amazing. Thank you for all who found the site and apologies to the fifty or so that...

Show up at Sunlight Tower this Sunday and we will not be here. Our joint service will go down as a great event or a lesson learned. We are praying for the first option. All five of our services will be joined together for ONE WORSHIP: CELEBRATION, CONFIRMATION AND COMMUNION. We gather at...

Psalm 19 is called by C.S. Lewis as the ‘greatest poem in the Psalter and one of the greatest lyric poems in the world.” It’s closing verse is a prayer we should pray every day: “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O LORD, my...
