This Sunday, March 1st, Oikos is meeting for the second Church in the Caf of the semester and fourth of the year. For more information on Church in the Caf and what's happening this Sunday in particular, check out the link below. Please pray that the service will be encouraging and convicting to those present, and that students’ hearts and minds would be gripped by the love of Jesus Christ!
This Sunday, March 1st, we will be meeting for our second Church in the Caf of the semester and fourth for the year. CITC is an interdenominational worship service with a gospel message and some food and fellowship afterward. Thus far this year a typical CITC is attended by thirty or so students, but at the end of November we did see a bigger turnout when seventy-plus came out for a Christmas Feast. At this CITC, Paul Racine, a long-time mentor...

I just  beat a new game I've been toying with on Pebble called Text Run. It's a text-based endless runner, in the same vein as old text-based RPGs like Zork. As you beat monsters and go through doors you acquire gems which unlock pictures of lynx, a fun concept since the game designer is a company called Wearlynx. I don't know who else is playing this but I figured I would post this to be helpful to anyone who's wondering how much longer they have to go to get to the final unlock (the picture with two lynx).

It is very cool when God uses your morning prayers to shape your sermon, then uses your sermon to bring about an answer to those prayers.

This point has been made a thousand different ways in a thousand different places, but I really appreciate the "how we should react" panel. It was refreshingly constructive in its tone, rather than simply coming across as a rant.

'God is on a mission to get the hell out of earth. Ironically, this phrase can be applies to both of the stories, but within each story it means something dramatically different. Because of this dissimilarity, this phrase can be a helpful way for us to compare the two stories. In the first story, the problematic one, this phrase means that God is on a mission to abandon the earth, to 'get the Hell out of Dodge,' and take a bunch of us with him. In this construal, Jesus and his followers are on a mission to escape the world, to make a break for our heavenly home and leave this mess behind.

'Unfortunately, Christianity has at times - especially in recent times - framed things this way and, in doing so, horribly distorted the gospel story.

'But this phrase can also be taken a second way. In the second story, the biblical one, it means that God cares deeply for his world, that the Creator loves his creation, that our heavenly Father has dramatic compassion for the humanity he has brought up from the dust. In his second story, it means that God is grieved by the sin, death, and power of hell that afflicts his world, and is sacrificially involved in the removal of all that destroys and alienates his world from himself.

'As we have seen, this is the movement of the gospel story. God's agenda is to get the hell out of earth.'

-Joshua Butler, The Skeletons in God's Closet, Chapter 1.

A great example of Calvin & Muad'Dib's poignancy.
Whether a thought is spoken or not it is a real thing and has powers of reality.

Last night, somewhere around fifty people came out to watch God's Not Dead on campus. The event was a big success. But unfortunately the success was despite, rather than because of, the movie. I've posted my preliminary thoughts on my ministry website and intend to follow through with a handful of other posts. As always, thoughts are welcome!

Thanksgiving is upon us and fall is in full swing - sounds like a good excuse for a newsletter! Check out our first Annual Vision Update to learn more about our calling and how it is playing out at present. Oh, and enjoy the visual refresh of the website while you're at it!

"What's the man doing Daddy?"

"The man is explaining that God made marriage. That's why there are boys and girls, so that we can get married."

"Yeah. Me get married!"

"Yes, someday Daddy will bring you to a boy and you will get married."

Ali gives me a great big hug.

"Yay! Me loves boys! ... And then me will be boy too!"

Something tells me that the concept's Judy a little beyond us yet...

Story
Tagline
Student of Christ and Christians, husband and father of one.
Introduction
I am a Christian, student, and husband and father of one.

I have been engaged in various forms of ministry since 2007. I currently work with youth and young adults in Ontario, preach and lead workshops at churches and events, and assist with summer camp ministries for Cree youth in northern Quebec. Me and my family have been living in Peterborough, Ontario since October 2013, where I am working with students at Trent University, providing mentorship, leadership, and resources designed to help Christians share the Gospel relationally on campus. I have an MTS from Tyndale Seminary and am currently studying there via correspondence towards a ThM in Church History, with a focus on theological developments in the latter part of the 20th century.
