The Islamic Effect

Category: General

Last week's terrorist attacks in Ottawa represent a tragic and seminal moment in Canadian culture.  Things are changing in the Canadian mind and we didn't really have the chance to process that as a church because of our own personal tragedy in the passing of Justin Scott.  Now that some time has passed I want to try and resource you as you engage with your friends and neighbours on the issue of Islamic terrorism.  That topic was somewhat out of bounds two weeks ago, but all of...keep reading»»

Heaven Is For Real

Category: General

Hi friends, As many of you will know, our church family experienced a tragedy two weeks ago tomorrow.  The death of a 20 year old student is among the most disorienting events imaginable.  For many of our young people, the funeral of Justin Scott was quite likely the first time they seriously contemplated their own mortality.  This is a time for asking and answering new and serious questions so I was not surprised to receive an email from one of our young people who is reaching...keep reading»»

This morning in our RMM readings we stumbled across a passage that is very difficult to understand.  In 2 Kings 3, we are told that the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah had formed an alliance against Moab.  This in itself is a bit of a surprise because the king of Israel at the time was Jehoram the son of Ahab.  That’s Ahab of “Ahab and Jezebel” the dynamic duo of idolatry in the Old Testament.  What is the faithful king Jehoshaphat doing in partnership with a person...keep reading»»

Odds and Ends

Category: General

You probably noticed the new pew Bibles under your chair this past Sunday. We made the decision to go with the ESV version for a variety of reasons.  In general it is far better to have a word for word translation for preaching and listening to sermons.  While paraphrastic translations have their place, preaching is built upon the words and arrangements of the text and seeing and understanding those is aided by a more literal translation.  The best word for word translations are...keep reading»»

WTTB Devotional With Pastor Evan

Category: WTTB Devotions

In today’s RMM reading we come to a passage that shows more than a warning against polygamy. Any person that has had a relationship and has reasonable sense knows that is going to end in disaster! What we really observe here is the nature of a nation that begins in the people. God had redeemed Israel in his great mercy from the hands of the Egyptians. But immediately we see that the nation is a rebellious one who breaks the Lord’s law and are allured to worship empty statues. Whatever form it...keep reading»»
