    AIDS CARE in Lesotho

    Children in Lesotho

    In the summer of 2014, I had the privilege of being part of the Africa Learning Team that went to Lesotho and South Africa. We began our time at Paballong. It is situated on the Berea Plateau. I was overwhelmed by the incredible creativity of God everywhere I looked. We were surrounded by mountains and the view in any direction was breathtaking!

    Paballong is comprised of an HIV AIDS clinic, a farm, youth centre and a daycare centre. The Meeting House supports the daycare centre through...

    The Sounds of Palestine




    “O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie” (unfortunately not the case in 2015)

    In November I had the privilege of spending two weeks behind the separation wall in Bethlehem, listening to the heart-wrenching stories of the people of this land. The birthplace of our Saviour is no quiet village today , but is instead one of numerous flashpoints of conflict between the occupiers and the occupied in the Holy Land. As I walked along the peaceful shores of Lake...

    Compassion Champion: Valerie Stacey

    Valerie Stacey

    Some of you have the privilege of knowing Valerie Stacey. You may serve alongside her in kidmax or attend home church together. Perhaps you traveled on the Africa Learning Team in 2014 with her. One thing is sure: if you don’t know Valerie, I hope you know someone like her. Valerie’s care for those around her is evident in all that she does and we consider ourselves fortunate to have her investing into our children on Sundays.

    We Will Remember

    Poppy
    Occasionally, I’m asked if a peace church like ours that promotes non-violent enemy love should pause to commemorate Remembrance Day or if individual Christ-followers should wear poppies and participate in Remembrance Day events.

    Pacifists, like anyone, have differing opinions – there is no one right answer. But my approach, and our approach at The Meeting House, has always been to use Remembrance Day as an opportunity to...

    Refugee sponsorship through a child's eyes

    Thank You Canada

    The last time we sponsored a refugee family, I was about 12 years old. Our Chinese Baptist church in North York had sponsored four refugee families from Vietnam in the early 1980s. This church community was largely made up of newcomers helping newcomers. At that time, we were new immigrants from Hong Kong ourselves, having just arrived in Canada five or six years earlier.  

    I remember the sponsorship experience rather vividly: from the time the plight of the Vietnamese "boat...
