Speaking of Salvage!


We were treated to a Good Word by Peter who came to us from our sister church, Park Drive in Oliver.  He spoke on the fact that God is in the job of recycling!  He does not consider people as throwaway. 

He spoke of Nicodemus and Jesus and I'm sure you will enjoy his take on some scenes from the Bible which support his message.  Just click on the play button to hear it.

Hello Everyone,

As I watched the Olympic Torch go by (from a great distance and from the comfort of my own home as I did not know what time they were passing) I could hear the sirens, see the flashing lights and hear the yells and cheers of encouragement.  It was contagious - just hearing it makes one "quicken" to be part of something inspiring and bigger.  

This happened to me and Miles often when we would take part in Road Races when we used to run.  Even if our intent was simply to run for the enjoyment, once one gets in a crowd with running toward a united prize your spirit is gripped with the desire to do better!  I was drawn to form pictures in my mind of the crowds that always surrounded Jesus whenever he was about.  I'm sure when he was arriving at any place the crowds swelled like this and rumours and speculation bubbled through the people.  Jesus was a people magnet and I'm sure being part in seeing Him would be no less electrifying than anything I could ever imagine.  

Jesus gives each of us the ability to inspire and quicken believers and non-believers alike.
  Just as with running, besides only running to keep fit - its good to "put the prize before you" - to enter an OFFICIAL race now and again.  Run for a PURPOSE.  Run WITH people.  Help someone along the way.  Sometimes the best stories in a road race is how someone helped someone in a wheelchair, or who was injured.  The race is as much about the JOURNEY as the finish... sometimes the finish is defined by the journey.  For what could mean more (more than any medal or certificate) than to hear the words:

"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

Matthew 25:21

Blessings on your week!
