THIS is what the kingdom of God is like ….


I want to offer warm greetings to the brothers and sisters of Lord’s Peace Chapel.   This past weekend, we had the privilege of having Dr. Rod Wilson, president of Regent College, expound for us a simple and familiar parable (Mark 6:26-29) with depth, spiritual insight, and clarity.  I believe Dr. Wilson offered us a very timely vision for kingdom work as we begin a new chapter here at LPC.    What I was particularly struck by was how Dr. Wilson presented the mysterious surprising way of God’s kingdom versus the way of the kingdom of the world.   The kingdom of the world depends on technique, proven strategies, good marketing based on sociological and psychological behaviours, and sometimes manipulation but THIS is what the kingdom of God is like … the kingdom of God takes time, patience, faith, prayer, anticipation, and the work of the Spirit.  I look forward to working out all the implications of this in the garden that we call LPC.  God has placed us together as a church and in particular, at the junction of West Vancouver, South Vancouver, and Richmond for a purpose.  There is a kind of crop or harvest that God wants to grow, let us prayerfully discern the kind of seeds we need to scatter in the days ahead!

Taking a Spiritual "Selfie"

Subject: Taking a Spiritual “Selfie”

 

One of the cultural happenings of today is the popularity of doing “selfies.” Since the introduction of smartphones that come with dual cameras, people have been posting on their social media profiles, pictures of themselves using the front facing camera. All that is needed is to hold the phone-camera with our arms, aim the focus at ourselves, do a smile, and snap. Selfie created. Easy. While the back camera is used to capture images in our surroundings, the front camera is used for our FaceTime, video-conferencing, Skype, or whatever telecommunications apps we have. Even the media has been calling 2013 the year of the selfie, riding on how Obama, the Pope, and other famous personalities have been doing selfies as well. Maybe, as we prepare to say goodbye to 2013, and to welcome in 2014, we can make use of the dual-camera as a way to look back and to look forward.

Blessed Christmas to You

“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”  (Isaiah 66:13)



Subject: Blessed Christmas


Christmas Eve typically marks the last day of the Advent season. Since November, churches and various Christian communities around the world have been helping their congregations to wait, to hope, and to anticipate the birth of Christ more than 2000 years ago.  Following Christmas, traditionally there will be 12 days of feasting, from which the popular song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is based upon. It has been said that the wise men arrived in Bethlehem sometime on January 6th, which marks the end of these 12 days and the start of the next season of the Western Church calendar: Epiphany.


If there is anything more distracting or disruptive, it is the non-stop cry of the materialistic culture to buy, buy, and buy stuff. Buy before Christmas because it is better to give than to receive. Buy at Boxing Day because prices are amazingly low. Buy before the end of the calendar year, as the budgeted amount has not been fully spent. Already, Canadian debt levels are climbing to record highs, with some families spending beyond their means. Just because it is Christmas.
