To Know Him is to Love Him ~ Pastor Gary

From time to time I will hear from congregants something they love about God or their Christian faith. Believe it or not, seldom do I hear, “I love doctrine!” Actually, you probably can believe that without any difficulty! Why do you suppose that is? Over the next three weeks or so I wish to take some time in our e-bulletin to encourage you to consider the importance of knowing and cherishing biblical doctrine. I will try to address some misconceptions along the way as well. To start, it is important to know what doctrine actually is. Too often we think of doctrine as nit picky details theologians concern themselves with that only has the effect of dividing Christians and churches. It is something inaccessible to “regular” Christians, or at least boring and irrelevant. What if I suggested to you that learning doctrine is the same thing as learning about God? Does that not cast the learning of doctrine differently? Firstly in terms of importance, and secondly in terms of interest.

Listen Up! ~ Pastor Andrew

Every Christian should be a learner and have a curiosity about the creation and the Creator.  We live in an age with an abundance of resources to help us grow in our Christian walk – from books to podcasts to videos.  Here are a few recommended resources for those who want to take a break from the books: Five Minutes in Church History – How do you learn about 2000 years of church history when there is so much information?  Take five minutes with Stephen Nichols as he guides you through some fascinating vinettes in church history.  A personal favourite, you won’t be bored listening to our story! The Bible Project – Produced by Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, these short animated videos summarize books of the Bible and themes throughout Scripture in a way that are accessible and helpful. ESV Bible – For those who find reading the Bible hard, why not listen to the Bible?  The ESV Bible app has an audio feature that allows you to find your passage, press play, and the verses will be read to you! The Briefing – Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, offers a daily synopsis of the news from a Christian worldview.  While off for July, this weekday podcast is a great way to help you to think Christianly about daily events. Ask Pastor John – Ever have a question that you wished a thoughtful Christian would answer?  Pastor John Piper tackles all sorts of questions in this podcast.  From theology to morality, no subject is off-limits. Christian Audio – A great way to get through...
