    (RE)UNION 6 OF 10 – Read chapter 9 of  (re)union

    The good news of the kingdom meets our fundamental human need for  purpose   and  meaning   in life. On Sunday I said that the gospel of Jesus helps us wake up every morning with a clear and compelling reason to live another day:

    Our purpose in this life is to experience and extend the kingdom of God.

    In this post I’d like to address two other human needs that are fulfilled through the good news of...

    (RE)UNION STUDY 5 of 10

    Why did Jesus cry out from the cross “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Did God turn away from Jesus during his crucifixion? Did the Father pour out his wrath on the Son in order to satisfy his own need for justice? Was that act of justice necessary for God to show us mercy?

    Christians have always agreed that Jesus “died for our sins” (1 Corinthians 15:3). In one of my favourite Bible passages, the apostle Paul says:

    He forgave...

    God is love


    God is love.
    ~ The Apostle John (1 John 4:8, 16)

    I believe these are the three most beautiful words strung together in the English language:  God is love .

    However, to say “God is love” only communicates accurately if we know what love is. Is love an emotion? A sentimental sensation? A philosophical value? The Greek word used for love in 1 John 4 is  agape  (the Hebrew near equivalent would be  hesed ), which means an...

    Gott Mit Uns belt buckles
    (RE)UNION STUDY 3 of 10 – Read Chapter 6 of  (re)union

    During WWII, the Nazi soldiers had the phrase “Gott Mit Uns” (God With Us) inscribed on belt buckles and rings. I used to own one of these belt buckles as a sorrowful reminder of the many ways the idea of God has been hijacked to support the work of Satan.

    Throughout history and still today, nations, armies, and terrorists have declared that God, or the gods, are on their side, standing for...

    5 Responses to Justifications for Anger


    At The Meeting House, we are currently working through a series on peace - starting with inner peace.

    Part of that teaching is admitting that in many circles, anger has been idolized as an important motivation to work for social justice. And we are smashing that idol.

    Whenever I teach on the New Testament ethic about anger wrath (Greek, orge) – you know, the fundamental teaching that anger is unhealthy and unacceptable for a disciple of Jesus – I always receive the...

    You Can Be a Peacemaker

    With just a brief look at the news or social media, one can easily observe that people’s differing opinions and beliefs have resulted in a major rift in our social cohesion in North America. This overwhelming flood of information on issues where there is no quick fix leads many, including us at The Meeting House, to question what meaningful role we can play in breaking down the many walls that our society is so quick to build.

    Jesus stated, "Blessed are the peacemakers for...

    Christmas Eve 2016

    You're invited! Yes you! And you too! Heck, bring mom and dad while you're at it! Even the neighbour, even cousin Sal. It's Christmas, you know cousin Sal could use the company. We hope you can join us for a time of scripture reading and carroll singing! All services are family friendly, so you can bring the kids and we'll do our best to keep them from causing complete mayhem.

    Hope to see you in:
