The Kingdom is like a Treasure

It is a serendipitous story, which is a story about serendipity. Serendipity, isn't that a great word? It is probably one of my favourite words. You know what serendipity means right? Serendipity means an unexpected discovery. You know when you are looking for something and you find something else. You know you drop the remote…

I am Smitten

I have been smitten! As most of you know, there is another woman in my life and she is absolutely gorgeous. A blue-eyed blonde, she already has me wrapped around her little finger. So it looks like Angela is going to have to share me, and she doesn't seem to mind. No, we aren't moving…

The Kingdom of Heaven is Like an Inukshuk

You see them everywhere now, along the road, in people's gardens, as jewellery, they are everywhere. Correct me if I'm wrong but most of us never knew what an inukshuk was before the Canadian Heritage commercials. But now most of us know at least "now the people will know we were here", even if we…

Since deciding to use the inukshuk as a theme for our summer messages, we have been on the quest to find inuksuit. (Now you know what the plural of inukshuk is!) And I realized that in our culture a lot of people are familiar with the term. I wouldn't have thought that at all. I…

Paul wrote exactly the same thing in Romans 13:8 without the catchy tune, Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbour, you will fulfill the requirements of God's law. That's…

The Nature of Holiness

If there is one concept in the bible that seems to be foreign to us in 2010, almost to the point of incomprehensible is the concept of sacrifice. Not the concept of making sacrifices for something or someone, we all do that on a fairly regular basis. As parents we make sacrifices for our children,…

So they will know I was Cranky

Penn of DennMy inukshuk had been decapitated. And I was cranky, maybe even a little angry. How, you might wonder, had my inukshuk been decapitated? Glad you asked. My summer series of messages will be based on, "The Kingdom of Heaven is Like an Inukshuk." (You will have to be here on June 20th to…
