Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation – Pastor Steve Lambert

Hey guys, just sharing another one of Steve’s posts from just over a month ago: Tuesday October 31, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of an event that changed the course of world history.  Like many important days history, it was an small, ordinary action performed by a relatively normal person that made all the difference […]

Two Marvels and a DC

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the chance to watch Marvel’s The Defenders, Marvel’s Punisher, and the newest DCEU (or whatever its official name will become) film Justice Leauge. For what it’s worth, here are my thoughts. I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum (except for The Defenders, that’s been out long […]

A Chat With Pastor Matt Pamplin

Today I had the chance to sit down, chat with, and pick the brain of the head pastor of my local church (St Clair Community Church), Pastor Matt Pamplin. Matt brings a very interesting perspective to the podcast, along with a lot of wisdom, a delightful accent, and a great sense of humor. Hope you enjoy […]

God’s Will – Pastor Steve Lambert

What is God’s will for my life?  Have you ever asked that question?  It often comes up in times of upheaval, when we are faced with change or a significant choice that we must make.  When we don’t know what to do, we stop and wonder what God wants.  Sometimes God makes it quite clear […]

No real post, just some plugs

Things have been MAD busy lately, and mostly in a good way. Jill and I got a house (pretty sure I mentioned that), so we’ve been moving and painting and between the house and the apartment. I left one of my two jobs to focus on the other – where praise God, things have been […]

Being Thankful round 2 (FIGHT!!)

I could *not* resist putting that ‘FIGHT’ there. Seriously, as I was coming up with the title I could not stop hearing it (especially in that Mortal Kombat voice (MOORRTAAAALLL KOMBAT!!! Dodododododododo))… Anyways, as I write this I am listening to a strange mix of Metallica and the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir, and it is getting […]

A collection of thoughts

So its been a very busy time recently – I got a second job, I’m trying to expand my horizons (job and hobby wise), been sick, had the blessing of being part of a wedding for my awesome brother in law Caleb and his wonderful wife Abbey (wooo new sister in law!). Been posting on […]

Sometimes, we need to lay down our rights and put others first.

This isn’t going to be a long post, it’s something that just kinda hit me while doing a lecture with Gordon Conwell this morning after the speaker (Dr McDonough) addressed it: we need to measure our rights (and entitlements, as these often go hand in hand unfortunately) and put them behind/below our love for others. […]

Pray for our leaders

This is probably gonna be a short post. So this week, premier Kathleen Wynne announced that minimum wage in Ontario will be increased to $14 come January of 2018, and then $15 in January of 2019. The reaction to it has been mixed. A lot of people at my work making minimum wage are thrilled. Others […]

Check yourself (before you wreck yourself)

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here something that wasn’t an interview. It’s been a bit of an up and down time, and I don’t know about y’all – but when its like that, I tend to plug myself into other/lighter/non-self reflective things. But God is good (that just needs to be said, always, […]
