Letting go of control

DEATH ISN'T NORMAL Let's just call a spade a spade for a moment: death isn't normal. Death is a by-product of a sin-soaked world and something that we all must face. But to say that it's normal would be the farthest thing from the truth. Each one of us is one heartbeat away from dying. Every one of us is one step away from opening that proverbial door into eternity. Th...

So Abram went

"So Abram went" (Genesis 12:4) Have you stopped to consider those three words? Ask any biblically literate Christian to recite a verse that is three words or less and, they'll most likely quote John 11:35: "Jesus wept." Two short words that carry a lot of punch. As I was reading through Genesis earlier today, I came across three words that caused me to stop: Genesis 12:4...

Snowflakes, shovelling and crowds oh my!

An unforgettable day! Friday, January 17, is a day that Newfoundlanders will not forget. I had gotten up early to bring my wife, who's a nurse, to work. We knew the storm was coming and she was much more comfortable with the thought of me picking her up, than her driving home in the blizzard. She was supposed to work a 12 -hour shift, but by 11AM, the city had called a ...

The weight of snow

The Weight of Snow I love how God allows us to see gospel messages in nature, and how He reminds us of His great power through natural phenomenon and weather. I'm no stranger to natural disasters. Back in January '98, I lived through one of the worst natural disasters in Canadian history. At the time, nearly 100mm of freezing rain fell over parts of eastern Ontario and ...

Snowmageddon 2020

Snowmageddon 2020 It's certainly been a wild week here in St. John's Newfoundland. You've likely heard about the massive snow/wind storm that we had here 7 days ago. We're still recovering from the whopping 70-90cm of snow that fell and the city is still in a State of Emergency (SOE). Among all of it, I'm trusting that God is in control over the weather. "He givessn...

Expectantly Waiting

Every year the theme of Advent never changes. In a lot of ways, it can be summed up as 'expectant waiting.' From Genesis to Revelation, we are given a front row seat to see the beginning, middle and end of the world. And this creates a tension because we know how the story ends, but here we are, still waiting. There's always been this 'expectant waiting' throughout salv...

Planting Seeds

1 Corinthians 3:7-9 7So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 9For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building. The truth of the matter is this: it is God wh...

Iron Sharpens Iron

What matters most? I have no doubt that hard choices have to be made and that they are a hard burden to bear. I have no doubt that those in leadership have to shoulder responsibilities that most of us could not imagine. I do, however, have to wonder sometimes if we can forget that those who work "for" us in ministry are people first; not employees. I have my own experien...

Dealing With Change

Something that every human being has to deal with in life is change. Change is inevitable and often someone will face different changes based on where they are in life. Typically, seniors will have different kinds of life changes than teenagers and teenagers will have different life changes than college students....
