2016 Summer Conference - Godly Wisdom
Written by John Tsang

Another Summer Conference has come and gone. Now we are filled with new memories of fellowship, laughter, great worship, our first Ping Pong tournament, and many rich thoughts on Godly Wisdom. What a delight it was to have Dr. Barbara Mutch as our Conference speaker!

 

In our first session, we thought about kindness and wisdom (James 4:13-18). Much of our wisdom literature in Scripture was written by those who were living in exile or during a time of dislocation. Our wisdom tradition sought to offer an intellectually credible summary of our faith to a secular world using non-religious vocabulary. Therefore, wisdom combined with kindness is one of the most winsome witness to a non-religious world.

Thy Kingdom Come - Matt 6:1-14

What a wonderful week with a beautiful wedding on Saturday, lots of visitors on Sunday (many out of towners visiting), and a great Compassion Ministry Sunday with our guest speaker, Dr. Mariam Kovalishyn. And this coming weekend is our Annual Summer Conference with Dr. Barbara Mutch. God is so good to our little church!

 

One of the areas of our overall ministry that excites me is the Compassion Ministry. We have a group of eager and dedicated members seeking to educate the LPC family about the poor and needy, to motivate the members to get involved, and to facilitate service both locally and globally. I believe Pastor Rob Penner started this ministry in his time here with LPC and I can tell that it is something that LPC has embraced whole heartedly. We continue to partner with Christian organizations who rescue girls trapped in sex trade (Ratanak), bring hope to orphans in China (International China Concern), local ministries like Crisis Pregnancy Center, Christmas hampers with Servants Anonymous, Shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, and we’ve initiated new partnerships local organizations like Vancouver Urban Ministries (VUM) and global ones such as Bella orphanage in Nairobi. If this is an area that interests you, we would love to have you join us. Contact George Nye, who serves as our committee chairperson.

The New Heaven and the New Earth – Isaiah 65:17-25, Rev 21:1-5
Written by John Tsang

Heaven is one of the most basic aspects of the Christian faith. In fact, many people (not all) make a profession of faith because of heaven. I once attended a Billy Graham event in Toronto and at some point in his sermon, he will usually ask, “Do you know where you will go when you die?” Graham will then proceed to explain how you can go to heaven by preaching about sin, Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins, and by receiving this gift of salvation from God by faith, you will have everlasting life, and go to heaven when you die.

 

Traditionally, heaven for many Christians is understood as a place that we go to when we die. It is primarily a spiritual reality, some believe that our spirit (or soul) separates from our physical body and ascend to heaven to be with God forever. What we do in eternity, no one actually knows. In our playful guessing, we speculate that whatever it is we enjoy here on earth (eg. tennis, golfing, eating), heaven has that, and much, much more.  And at some point, the present earth will be destroyed and God will create a new heaven and a new earth.  Now, we need to ask ourselves whether this traditional view of heaven is Biblical and Scriptural or not.
