RC Sproul on Predestination

I’ll admit it — I have a man-crush on RC Sproul. What an awesome teacher! Last week RC took on a favourite hot-topic among Christians – predestination. Every time I have an Ask The Pastor night this question comes up over and over. It is clearly close to people’s hearts and people want a good answer. Maybe you avoid the […]

Favourite Podcasts

In my heart of hearts I’m a student. I loved school and now I  love learning about Jesus and His Church. For me, being a teacher, preacher, leader, vision-caster, etc. isn’t a job but a natural expression of the things God built me to be interested in and impassioned by. I’m energized by reading books, articles, blogs, listening to sermons and other […]

Favourite Thinker's Blogs

Continued from yesterday… I’ve shown you my favourite Leadership and Christian Living Blogs, but today I want to show you something different. These blogs are more inline with my personal interests, but I think you may find them interesting — I certainly do. These are not Christian bloggers, but they are intelligent, insightful and entertaining. Some of them do, on rare occasion, […]

Male Eldership

  There’s some confusion among Christians regarding male Eldership and the role of women in the church.  This is a concern to me because it can easily become a divisive topic if it’s not clearly communicated and carefully (and humbly) studied.  I want everyone to understand what God says about the different roles of men and women in the family, […]

Read My Book "Letters From Jesus" Free

I wrote a book a while back called “Letters from Jesus: A Study of the Seven Churches of Revelation“, and it’s FREE on Google Books to read and download as PDF.  It’s all about how Jesus speaks to us in unique and special ways to encourage, correct, challenge and train us. The book won an “Award of Merit” from The Word […]

I'm Angry with my Toothpaste

Oh toothpaste, how you have let me down! You promise so many things! In your TV commercials you tell me that no person can respect, love or enjoy the company of someone without shiny, white teeth. You tell me that the reason that I’m not successful in life is because my choppers are too dull. You say that if my […]

Why Life Sometimes Sucks

Matthew 6:19-34,  John 15:5-8 are key verses to read and know if we are to understand life as a Christian.  They are encouraging, reassuring and powerful.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read them or referenced them in sermons.   Life with Jesus is meant to be a life where our worries are minimized, our joy is maximized, and where […]

The Basics of Bible Study

I recently began a sermon series called Plug In: The Spiritual Disciplines, where I plan on going through 10 weeks of study on different ways we can meet God, know more about Him, understand our faith, and grow closer to Jesus.  This was given as the first sermon in the series.  I realized after the service that it was too […]

By Request: “A Good Church”

I recently spoke at the 165th anniversary celebration for Beckwith Baptist, a church in the Ottawa area.  I got a lot of comments and requests for the text, so I thought I’d post it here this week.  It’s based on Acts 2:42-47. — A Good Church If you ask the question, “What is a church?” a lot of people will […]

Father’s Day “Relationships & Success”

I’m breaking pattern this week so I can share something I wrote for Father’s Day, a sermon based on Psalm 1:1-2.  It’s challenging and practical, and I hope will help you next time you have the “I’m worried about the path you’re going down” talk with someone. —— “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the […]
