Beyond Sunday

It's All Latin to Me

As mentioned last week October marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. An event that shaped what our church is today. 

In 1517 Martin Luther took 95 Theses or arguments and nailed them to the church door in Wittenburg Germany. These Theses called for debate between Martin Luther and the Catholic church. Luther called out the Catholic church on a number of practices and wanted to see those things reformed.

Breakfast

When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 

John 21:9-13

Backpack Calling

Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. “It is written,” he said to them, “My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.”
The blind and the lame came to him at the temple and he healed them. But when the chief priest and teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple courts, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant. 

“Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him.

Coffeeshops and Church

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread
and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the
apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and
possessions to give to anyone in need. Everyday they continued to meet in the temple courts.
They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God
and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added daily those who were being saved.

Acts 2:42-47

Mapping the Opportunities

Luke 10:25-37


One day an authority on the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to receive eternal life?”
“What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied. “How do you understand it?”
He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ ”
“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do that, and you will live.”
But the man wanted to make himself look good. So he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

The Lord's Supper - You're Invited

I remember back to when I was 8, another student in my grade 3 class was having a birthday party. He had been playing up the party for weeks, he was saying how great it was going to be, that there might even be a bouncy castle. Sounds amazing right? 

And finally one morning he handed out the invitations. An array of brightly colored cartoon drawings covered the card, then in big, bold, blue letters it said You’re Invited!

Travel and the Word of God

We are back! After a lovely 10 day holiday Sam, Rory and I have returned home to Lethbridge. We had a wonderful time with family and were blessed greatly at the Inspire conference. We look forward to sharing resources and material with you soon! 

As part of our travels we spent time in airports. We got an idea of the size of O’Hare airport in Chicago in fact when we had to run from one end to the other in twenty minutes to catch our connecting flight.

The Broken Door

“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbour, or say to one another ‘Know the Lord’, because they will know me from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

Jeremiah 31:33-34
