Working It All Out

Why do you get out of bed in the morning? If you work, or have worked in the past, why spend your energy and time putting out effort to accomplish anything? Who is going to remember what you did day after day, week after week, year after year? What a way to get depressed at the start of a year – Wondering if there is any purpose to what I do. All of us want to accomplish something. Sometimes we’re successful and sometimes we aren’t. But what does our effort matter? Won’t......

What if You’re Not Alone

Have you ever been certain that you were alone until you heard that noise in the darkness? Was it a creak from the house, a footstep in the hallway, a mouse in the wall? Sometimes we live our life as if we’re alone.

We even sit......

He sets the lonely in families

Have you ever experienced loneliness – Deep, heart-throttling dread which squeezes all the joy, hope and sense of being loved out of you? Or perhaps, just a sense of wondering whether you belong – if anyone notices you or cares about you more than the ‘like’ you can give to their smiley ‘post.’ The Vancouver Foundation report this past year concluded that the loneliest people in Vancouver are aged 18-34. The generation that populates Facebook and Skype – who multiply friendships on-line – they are lonely. The claim from this group is......

Vision Beyond Your Resources

Have you ever dreamed a dream that was so big you knew it could never happen? – but it didn’t stop you from hoping. When the leadership at Faith Fellowship decided in 1996 that they wanted this church to reflect our community more they agreed that we should become more culturally diverse. Our small vision team in 2002 dreamed of starting a daycare, refugee houses and other significant ministries which would help us reflect the “every tribe, tongue and nation” image of Revelation 5 and 7. We decided that we “want to......
