Secularism and Medicine in Canada

Dr. James Dobson, in his book Fatherless, envisions a society in 2040 where current Baby Boomers are pressured into transitioning out of life so that their wealth can be passed on to the next generations; expectant mothers undergo near mandatory screening of their unborn child to screen out potential burdens on society; even teens who are depressed or deficient in any way are encouraged to transition for the sake of society. What Dobson envisions as future is closer in Canada than it appears. “Suffering children” are already being euthanized in some European......

Suffering -a week of reflections

When in the middle of a trial it is easy to ask. “Why me?” We are tempted to look at others and assume they have no troubles. A struggling friend said “others in the church have perfect lives and can’t understand mine”. Being privileged to “pastor” many I can attest that suffering is pretty universal. It may be a bad report from a doctor, a horrific accident, a broken relationship or a natural disaster. Today we read of a terrible tragedy in Toronto – so random, so unexpected, so undeserved. There are......

At Home with suffering-lonely,struggles,overwhelming,tears,burden,losing hope,carrying cross

“For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him…” Philippians 1:29 Two weeks ago was devastating for my friend. She had lost her wallet and all her credit cards. The weight of the world was on her shoulders as she dealt with the police and made the calls to cancel her life and identity. With her feet kicked out from under her, the rest of the world took on the form of a growing burden that overwhelmed her.......

A MAZE 'ing religions -God ,divine being,Sovereign-all religions make exclusive claims and do not believe the same things

It doesn’t take long to be in Canada before you realize that most Canadians honestly believe that if religion is a valid option in this tolerant society than all religions are equally valid. It is true that some Canadians believe religion is dangerous and not something for any sane person to pursue, but for many there is still some sense of spiritual sensitivity to something. It only takes a national tragedy to realize this. The Chaplain of the Humboldt, Saskatchewan junior ice hockey team devastated in the crash that killed 15 of......

A TIME magazine article by Reynolds Price from November 28, 1999 states that “the single most powerful figure – not merely in these two milleniums but in all human history – has been Jesus of Nazareth … a serious argument can be made that no one else’s life has proved remotely as powerful and enduring as that of Jesus.” Dr. James Francis, back in 1926, preached to a group of youth on “the Real Jesus”. The following is an adaptation of his fuller message. “Here is a man who was born......

Truth and Culture-comforts,values, morals, habits,lifestyles, beliefs

Many of us who are followers of Jesus grow up in a bubble of truth we assume defines reality as it is. To others being nurtured on the sap of secularism the arrogant, or even tentative, truth claims of Christians can only be condemned as intolerant. The Christian World has just re-energized its foundational beliefs over these past weeks with a focus on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Our music, our liturgy and our focus on the Scripture stories appeal to our soul convictions that we are right in what......
