It was quite a week:

 

I met with Brian McConaghy of Ratanak Foundation. I've been fortunate enough to meet a number of impressive people in my time - Brian is certainly one of them. After a career in the RCMP - he worked on the Robert Pickton case - he founded Ratanak Foundation which combats human trafficking. I'm delighted that LPC gives to his work.

 

Then we got confirmation that Mary Ann Buffam of Tear Fund Canada will be able to attend our potluck on 21st September. They apparently have long-term economic development programs designed to improve the lives of individuals and communities.They say 'we believe people trapped in poverty can transform their lives, and design programs to release potential'. I'll be sad to miss it (I'll be on vacation). Please will take good notes!

 

Then we heard that Thomas Bergen would be relinquishing his quarter time post as Worship Pastor in January in order to concentrate on a PhD. We'll all miss Thomas' fine worship leading. Please pray that we'll find a suitable replacement in a timely fashion.

 

Finally, it was my privilege to speak on Philippians 1:18b-26. It's hard to find a passage where the Apostle Paul's heart is more clearly displayed. If he lives through his impending trial, Christ would be at the centre of his day to day living and ministry. If he dies, he'll be with Christ for eternity. Whichever it is, he'll be rejoicing in his Saviour. We couldn't hope for a better example.

 

Blessings

 

Pastor Chris
