A Rewarding Week in Egypt

  I’m pleased to report that my recent teaching opportunity in Egypt was very rewarding, perhaps one of the most satisfying of my life. That’s a strong comparison, and I recognize that I may not be fully objective at this point in time. Thank you for praying for me, as many of you have attested. …

When God is Silent – Poem by Ken Lievers

When God is Silent Jb.30:20; Ps.22:1-3; 73:25 In tearful prayer I sought the face of God, The agony contorting all my soul Time and again, abject before His throne In faith, yielding to His divine control. And yet, the deafening silence seemed austere. Did all my heartfelt words not reach His ear? Did God now …

When God is Silent – Week Three Blog

I’ve been following the comic strip, Coffee With Jesus, for a few years now. I appreciate how the strip uses humour to make a point. Sometimes that point hits uncomfortably close to home! I may or may not own a Hawaiian shirt. The premise is pretty simple: it’s usually four panes showing someone interacting with …

When God is Silent – The Silent Times

The Silent Times Those seven silent days Job’s friends saw suffering, grief. While they did hold their peace God did not bring relief. (Job 2:13) Those nine months slowly passed. He didn’t say one word But mulled over all that God promised and ensured. (Lk.1:13, 20, 64-65) Those thirteen years enslaved The heavens seemed like …

Thinking Out Loud… the One-Anothers

Thanks for some great interaction yesterday. I really enjoyed the discussions I had with those of you who came to me after the services. It was both a joy and a challenge to lead you in responding to God’s word in 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12. I should probably say that every sermon for me is both …

Thinking Out Loud…about Christians in Society

Christians are often conflicted about how to respond to cultural challenges.  On many issues, we find ourselves at odds with the culture around us, i.e. matters of life and death, marriage and sexuality. For instance, Trinity Western University is in a legal battle to defend their “community covenant” that expects students to refrain from sexual …

Don’t Quit

Just because I quit at this church, doesn’t mean you should too. 2 years ago, God started stirring in our hearts. And He helped us see that there was change coming on the horizon.  We did not know if that change was going to be a change here at E-Free, or if it meant somewhere …
