Beyond Sunday

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

Week 3 Challenge

Notice and be grateful for something new every day this week. Really. Something you’ve never ever been grateful for before. Stay away from the same old “I am grateful for my family.” Or “I am grateful for my home”, but something you have never noticed before. Maybe the way petals curl on the flowers or how your son loads the dishwasher so nicely. Write these gratitudes down and share them with a friend.

Week 2 Challenge

Extending the Celebration of Easter: For the weeks leading up to Pentecost you will find a weekly challenge here to continue the Easter celebration, because according to the church calendar Easter lasts for 50 days not just 1 day.

Week 2 Challenge

Make it a point to spend some extra time in nature. The life-death cycle is apparent this time of year. Buds appear on the trees. Plants poke their first shoots out of the ground and say, “See, you just thought we were gone. We’re back!” Meditate on the part of creation that insists that life come back and beauty returns. Share this moment with your children, grandchildren, and friends.
