Where Is The Hope?

Do you feel hopeless? Do you keep looking around for any kind of sign that things might be getting better, only to discover that somehow they get worse? Could you use a dose of hope?

Division

Everywhere you look around you, there is division. In a world that celebrates tolerance, somehow, we are growing less tolerant and more divided every day.

Desperation

With the pandemic and the PTSD nearly every American feels from the election, we are worn thin and desperate for any kind of hope we can find. But where?

Deception

With so much propaganda and such a fight to "control the narrative", we are bombarded with deception from every angle.

You might be feeling a little like this...

We get it, we've been there.

As a church we are committed to the truth. (Yes, we believe there are actual facts.) But, we are also committed to being peacemakers and ministers of reconciliation. So, we refuse to use the truth as a weapon. Instead, we believe truth should be used to set people free. 

 

We know these are complicated times. 

 

We know there is a strong perception that churches and Christians are divisive, judgmental, bigoted and closed-minded. 

We know there are many in our world today who disagree with us. 

 

But, we also believe that as members of the human race we are more alike than we are different. 

 

And we are dedicated to being a part of the solution and not a part of the problem. 

We want to be a part of the solution. 

Even if you vehemently disagree with us, we think we can work together to make Vancouver a better place to live. 

If you want to help us figure out how to mend some of the wounds that have been festering, get in touch, give us a call, come to a service, volunteer at the food pantry or send us a message on Facebook

We would just love to talk to you about how, together, we can make a difference.

The One And Only Kingdom of God

Not only do we live in a world where people are desperate for power, we find ourselves wanting to be able to establish kingdoms for ourselves. We want to rule and reign over our little pieces of this earth. And we want to be able to set up our own way of life within our own domain. As a society, we want to be able to determine for ourselves what is right and wrong. We don't just want the ability to decide whether or not we have to submit to the powers that be, we want to be able to decide what rules and laws the powers that be are to enforce. From how we think of government, to how we think of the family to how we think of ourselves, our bodies and our personal identities, we want the first and last word. What happens when you try to…

Draw The Circle, Part 4: Think Long

On the Swedish Island of Visingso, there is a mysterious forest of oak trees; mysterious because oak trees aren’t indigenous to the island and its origin was unknown for more than a century. Then in 1980, the Swedish Navy received a letter from the Forestry Department reporting that their requested ship lumber was ready. The Navy didn’t even know it had ordered any lumber. After a little historical research, it was discovered that in 1829 the Swedish parliament, recognizing that it takes oak trees one hundred and fifty years to mature and anticipating a shortage of lumber at the turn of the 21st century, ordered that twenty thousand oak trees be planted on Visingso and protected for the Navy.  What does this have to do with prayer?
