Who Is a Good Parent? It's a loaded question, isn't it? It seems to me that often the people who think they are great parents aren't, and the parents who are doing a great job (even if imperfect) tend to feel their weakness the most acutely. As evangelicals in the western world in the 21st…

Three years later, I believe this now even more than when I wrote it: Thankfulness for Everything 
** This is written as part of the series 30 for 30: Reflections on Life at My 30th Birthday ** ------------ Recently we moved east. I’ve always been a west-end guy, so this is totally new for me. But I’ve enjoyed getting to know the area. The other night I was out roller-blading on a path near our new home. I stopped at one point by the lake and sat for a while to gaze out over Lake Ontario. As I looked down the shoreline to the right and to the ...

Excited for our Good Friday service and all that God is doing in the City of Toronto!
 
New logo, same mission!

You may have noticed last week that our profile picture has changed! As we prepare to celebrate five years worshipping together for Good Friday, we also want to highlight what our five churches aim to accomplish under the Lord’s leading. 

Though our logo changed, our mission remains the same: an alliance for Reformed, missional ministry in Toronto. In fact, our vision is for gospel-centered ministry in Toronto that will lead to churches being planted, existing churches being renewed and believers being equipped to live on mission in every sphere of life.

Our new logo helps represent how our five churches network each other across the geographic map of Toronto. The colours embody each respective church’s unique character while depicting the diversity of our city.

Four questions to ask before joining a church.
0 Comments. I've been asked this question many times not just through my Practical Shepherding website, but even more recently in my own church by visitors. It is a common scenario. You move to a new area. You get find your new residence and job. You get the kids enrolled in school.

Point 3 "Is this a church where my family will experience meaningful Christian fellowship and accountability?" is the biggie on both sides of the shepherd/sheep view. You have sheep that do not want to be accountable to the shepherd. But you also have shepherds that are not accountable to the sheep in making sure they are doing well. A simple question to ask is "when was the last time the pastor/elder came to visit you and ask you how you were doing"? I think that anything over 6 months is negligence on the part of the pastor/elder. What are your thoughts Julian?

Forgiveness hurts but also heals. It is both costly and freeing.
In his excellent commentary on Luke's Gospel, David Garland spends some time thinking about forgiveness as he reflects on the Lord's model prayer (Luke 11.1-4). He then cites C.S. Lewis on the topic of forgiveness and what Christians really believe: We believe that God forgives us our sins; but also that He will not do so unless we forgive other people their sins against us. There is no doubt about the second part of this statement. It is in the ...

"...in this moment, the most bizarre convergence of wills of all time takes place: the will of man for the death of God and the will of God for the life of man."
