Miracles: Feeding the 5000

Counterculture: Self-Control Over Self-indulgence

Self-control is a virtue that can refer both to the strength to refrain from doing something that we shouldn’t, but also to the strength of stepping up and acting when we should.

Counterculture: Gentleness Over Harshness

When we are kind to others, what is our motive? Often we are kind not for the pure motive of helping an other, but so that we feel better about ourselves.

Though worry and anxiety are nothing new, in the past few years they seem to be on the rise in Canada and around the world. God’s desire for us is that we would cast our cares on Him. So how do we live like this? How does peace  grow and flourish in our lives?

Ekklesia: Worship

From the earliest days of the church, the practice of gathering together regularly for worship became a cornerstone of Christianity. In some nations today, the church gathering is declared illegal. Here in the West with our religious freedom, we dont face that threat and yet we see weekly worship decline steadily. What do we stand to lose if we dont see this as an important practice to build into our weekly rhythm?

Unstoppable: Divine Conversion

Despite Jesus being very clear to his followers that he wanted the gospel to go into every culture and to all people groups, the early church was still almost exclusively Jewish.

Cruciform: The Cross and Victory

Crucifixion was scandalous and certainly not associated with anything celebratory or victorious for the victim. And yet, the early Christians came to see Christ crucified as the ultimate victory of God. How? For who? And what does it mean for us?

Cruciform: The Cross and Atonement
