The West Wind of Extravagant Mercy

It’s been a wee bit chilly of late, hasn’t it? A few days back, with the thermometer here in Cochrane reading a balmy minus-31 degrees, out of curiosity I did a quick Google search on current temperatures in Antarctica. Scrolling through a long list of research stations and weather posts, I failed to find a lower temperature than minus-29. Sorry, brothers and sister...

Some Thoughts On A Family Banquet

One of the great things about the Christmas season as it is celebrated by Canadians is the family get-togethers. There is always lots of food, feasting and fun. But when family is far away, or estranged, those family gatherings that everyone else enjoys can rip the skin off of old scars. ...

Who Has The Say-So?

Have you ever wondered who "has the say-so"? In any family, business or organization there are many decisions that must be made. And if the decisions are to be made it has to be clear who has decision-making authority. That’s what some old-timers that I’ve known used to call, "having the say-so."...

The Neglected Child and the Disappearance of Theology

n the early winter of 1997, I spent a few minutes in the office of theologian David Wells, picking his brain about the history of 20th-century evangelicalism. He graciously and patiently answered my questions then handed me a little booklet called The Bleeding of the Evangelical Church....

The Transformation of Mordor

Our family likes to go on road trips. On one of these trips, we drove through northern Utah. Since the Lord of the Rings movies had been released recently, the thing that sprang to mind for a few of us was “Mordor.” Though devoid of evil goblins and archvillains, the landscape gave us an intimidated feeling. The sheer cliffs and perpendicular angles of the rock faces m...

The Glory of Marriage in the Midst of Disaster

Disasters rarely occur at a time of convenience, and the recent flooding that struck Southern Alberta was no different. Lives were lost; billions of dollars worth of property was destroyed; uncounted millions in economic damage was done. Compared to the losses of the bereaved and the newly homeless, it seems trivial to discuss the inconveniences that the flooding caused fo...

Tension That Strengthens

“Lessening the tension in a crisis is not of itself a good thing." Why? Because we can be tempted to rush in and deal with the symptoms without discovering the cause. Lloyd Jones is speaking in the context of true conversion as opposed to simply moral and philosophical reform....

Time Flies

Time flies regardless of how much fun we are having. True, it seems to fly by faster when we are having fun or doing the things we enjoy, but in reality, time flies regardless of how we perceive its passing....

I Grow Under the Load

As we recall Jesus’ triumphal entrance into Jerusalem on his way to the ironic reversals of betrayal, arrest, trial, crucifixion, death, burial and three days later, resurrection, we are reminded of our own call to the cross....

On Debt and DEBT

This past Sunday our pastor shared a great sermon about our infinite moral debt to God, and how Christ's perfect life and substitutionary death is the only currency that can pay this debt. To paraphrase him: We certainly have failed the obligations of God's law - to love, worship and obey him as we should. Christ is the only one that can free us from the damning obligation...
