Let’s Be Women Who Build

I had the pleasure of speaking with a group of women on Tuesday night. It made me really think about how things have shifted for me… I used to hate gatherings of women…it used to make me so uncomfortable being in a group of women. Everything they did always seemed so cliche. I always thought …

Overcoming Feelings of Rejection

Rejection. Everyone has experienced it in different measures and in different ways. Rejection. That ‚Äúslap on the cheek‚ÄĚ feeling.¬† The gut wrenching, heart breaking feeling. Maybe you remember your first taste of rejection; being picked last in gym class, not getting into the school you wanted, being turned down for a job. Maybe your first …

SPEAK

Well, I’ve got it. My OneWord¬†for 2014. I’ll be honest, it took me a bit longer to commit to it because it is kind of big…I was hoping that I’d be able to come up with something different…maybe something that wouldn’t be such a challenge for me but it seems like the word has stuck …

No More New Year’s Resolutions!

I’ve always hated New Year’s Resolutions so I was pretty relieved when I found out about this campaign that has inspired so many people to do something different. I love that the idea brings such clarity, focus and purpose throughout the year.¬†It’s about being intentional in achieving a broader goal that speaks to a heart …

Who Cares?

Have you ever felt like nobody cares about you? like you’ve been forgotten; overlooked; cast aside? There is nothing about these feelings that is pleasant or enjoyable. Unfortunately these are things that most of us feel at some point in our lives.

Women and the Church – Part III

I am sure that these three simple blog posts (Part I & Part II) haven’t closed this issue forever. It has, after all, been a contentious one for quite sometime. I do hope that it will make you think about this issue for yourself and maybe do some further studying of your own. The conclusion that I have come to is that God created man and woman equally in his image. He has a definite plan for each in his creation. Both are loved and valued equally by God, the creator of the universe. By our disobedience to God, the relationship between men and women has fallen incredibly short of what God intended it to be. The Good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to die in order to restore our relationship with him to what it was meant to be at creation. This restoration, from the words of Jesus and the apostles, can also restore our relationship to one another.

Women and the Church – Part II

When studying anything, it is often useful to start at the beginning. People are introduced in God’s creation in the book of Genesis in chapter one verses 26 and 27 when “…God said, let us make Adam in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. God created Adam in his own image; in the image of God he created him. Male and female he created them.” It is important to note here that there is no generic term for humanity in Old Testament Hebrew other than “Adam”. It is also important that the verbs to rule (kabash) and to dominate (radah) suggest the taking of the land and its stewardship. This stewardship is given to humanity as “male and female” in God’s command for “them” to “rule over” creation.

Women and the Church – Part I

This post, looking briefly at women in the history of the church, is part one of a three part series.
Many people often think that women have been excluded in the history of the church. I have found many things in the history of Christianity that I am not proud of, and that I don’t think God would have wanted done in His name. I’m glad, however, that when looking at the role of women in Christianity we can find many examples of women who were leaders, visionaries, missionaries, reformers and martyrs. Sometimes this also meant that they were rebels against the “institution of the church”. The story of women in the Christian church is no different from

Jordan Gadsby for Prince George City Council

My parents instilled in me the belief that being able to vote is a privilege; a responsibility; something to be taken seriously. This was the start of my interest in politics. As an adult, this¬†interest first took the form of reading about current events in Provincial and Federal politics from the view of a concerned …

Share your life

This week we had some exceptional young men staying at our house. Chantal and I have always said that we can’t, and shouldn’t try, to be everything to our kids. As a result we are very thankful for all of the high¬†caliber people we get to share our lives with. I love it when we …
