You may have read the headlines recently concerning the various decisions made or not made by The Church of Scotland and The United Methodists concerning same sex marriage.  You may also be aware that our own denomination is wrestling with the issue.   This week I will be co-hosting our renewal group, known as CLRA (the Covenant Life Renewal Association) up at Muskoka Baptist Centre.  Please pray for us as we listen to God's Word and speak to one another.  In preparation...keep reading»»

I was struck by something in our readings today that interacted with a few things I read in some historical sources on prayer and pastoral care.  I've been doing some research on pastoral care in the Reformation and Post-Puritan eras and one of the things that has interested me has had to do with how our spiritual grandparents prayed - particularly how they prayed for sickness and physical illness.  Remember that this was before penicillin and antibiotics and advanced medical...keep reading»»

Sometimes I write articles to reflect on the teaching of the Bible, sometimes I write articles to inform you about changes or development in culture and sometimes I write articles because I read something on the internet that made me sad.  This is one of those.  It won't hurt my feelings if you don't read it.  It won't surprise me if you have never heard of CJ Mahaney or the tempest in a teapot that has resulted from his talk at T4G.  If you are interested in issues of sin,...keep reading»»

You may have heard John Macarthur's now infamous delcaration from a week or so ago: "We've lost another word".  The word he was referring to of course was the word "evangelical".  The senior spokespersons within evangelicalism have been stating more and more openly that the era of Big Tent Evangelicalism is now over.  Why did it happen and what will life be like on the other side?  I offer what I hope is some useful counsel in the article linked here.keep reading»»

Leviticus For Everyone

Category: WTTB Reflections

This morning in our RMM readings we begin reading The Book Of Leviticus.  This is the drop out point for many people in their Bible reading ambition.  My friend Marc Bertrand has been preaching through Leviticus for the last several months at his church so I asked him to write a brief introduction for the average reader.  I think you will find it both helpful and motivating.  You can find it here.keep reading»»
