The Church and the TRC

REFLECTION – May 7, 2017 Fourth Sunday of Easter Acts 2 – TRC & Community Response If only I could turn back the clock.  I wish I hadn’t said that.  The Church would be a whole lot better off if we were more like the New Testament Church.  Yes, we do look back longingly, usually […]

The Road to Emmaus

“Com Panis”, sharing bread, gives us the word companion.  It is no surprise, surely, that Cleopas and his unnamed friend, recognise Jesus only when he breaks bread, and that the bread breaking could happen only when they offered the stranger hospitality.  Great revelations of the divine, happen when human beings reach beyond themselves and focus […]

The Community Church

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.  1 Corinthians 9:25 It really is a challenge belonging to a faith community.  The world is such a different place, even from […]

Worship with a Twist — Messy Olympics

Ecclesiastes 3:1 Not only is there a time for everything, but the changing times mean finding different ways to share the Gospel.  Over the past four years, Kildonan United Church has sought many new ways to share the Gospel with those […]

The Rich and Foolish Farmer

In the early Church, the question of possessions for the person of faith was an urgent and important question.  We read in Acts that certain possessions belong to God and it is harmful to one’s health to steal from God.  Elsewhere in Acts, we are told that the early Christians lived communally and shared their […]

There Must Be a Better Way

And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’  Matthew 8:20 There are too many times when being a Minister can be a frustrating business.  Let me rephrase that: there are too many times when being a Christian, […]

The Missional Church — Sermon for Pentecost Sunday

REFLECTION – May 15, 2016 The Missional (Community) Church Acts 2:1-21 Today, I want to ponder what it means to be a community Church.  My suspicion is that too often, we confuse community with friendship.  When we speak of needing community, we mean we need friends.  While that is probably true, the two words mean […]

While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. Luke 2:6-7 Over the past number of years, I have tried […]
