I preached recently in Lusaka Zambia. Pastor and Esther Reutter were our hosts. They’ve been in Zambia for 41 years. They arrived in 1982 with nothing but a vision to communicate the Gospel to the nation. They decided to start with what was “in their hand”, in this case Esther’s nursing credentials. They opened a […]

No doubt we’re all troubled by the state of our world. Over 2000 years ago Jesus gave us fair warning: “ you will hear of wars and rumours of wars…nation against nation…kingdom against kingdom…famines, pestilences, and earthquakes…”(Mathew 24:6,7). The Old Testament character Job declared that “man is born to trouble as the sparks fly upward”. […]

I don’t think any of us can comprehend the heartbreak of thousands of families in Turkey and Syria who have been shattered by the recent earthquake. The visuals on the internet and news services are overwhelming, and the hard bitten journalists who heretofore have “seen everything” are clearly stricken with emotion as they report on […]

I had an interesting conversation with a good friend the other day. We were talking about how small decisions can sometime have large consequences. Like where you’ll go to college, or who you’ll ask out on a date, or how you’ll choose what are called “core values” for your life. Sometimes we decide impulsively, other […]

Most sports fans are aware of the dramatic event which occurred during the Buffalo Bills vs Cincinnati Bengals NFL game a few weeks ago. Defensive half Demar Hamlin collapsed with cardiac arrest after a routine tackle. Millions of us watched with great concern as the medical professionals administered CPR while members of both teams openly […]

It’s a new year, time for resolutions, no? We all have them. Mainly because we can all see room for improvement. Unfortunately, many of them are unsustainable without major revisions of our core values, habits, and inherent resistance to change. Nevertheless, we’ve got a blank slate in 2023 and we’re keen to make a fresh […]

I was looking at an old photo album my mother put together 50 years ago. In it was a black and white “Brownie” camera picture of my 4 year old brother and me at 5 wearing “Rudolph the reindeer” pyjamas beside a small artificial Christmas tree in our home in Kelvington, Saskatchewan. We’re both smiling, […]

We had a VERY unusual experience last September in a village called Kapanula,Malawi. Over 600 orphans and widows, Home Based Care volunteers, chiefs, and pastors met us there for an all day event celebrating our 22 year ministry with them. Much dancing, singing, and speech making creating a minor dust storm! The main speech was […]

I’m no alarmist but the news lately re: the drying up of major rivers, is more than a touch concerning. The Rhine, Colorado, and Mississippi rivers have been at risk for a year or so, but recent news re: the historic Jordan and Tigris-Euphrates is troubling. These two rivers play a huge role in Iraq, […]
