This is a powerful movie about the impact of prayer in the Church, in the family, in our workplaces, in evangelism, in spiritual warfare, and in our personal lives. It brings to life what it means to have a life soaked in prayer. Superb acting.

Tri-City Canaan Church
Here is a short video clip from the world-renowned Dr J.I. Packer. Based in Vancouver, he is still actively preaching, teaching and writing books on theology. He is one of the most prominent names in Vancouver’s Regent College. The trouble with our faith is that we have trouble even explaining the most fundamental elements of our faith. That is one reason why we need to study and learn about our faith and what it means.
Watch him explain the importance of “Taking God Seriously” below.
Come join us at Tri-City Canaan Church for a night of praise and worship! Led by Jared and our youthful worship team, it will be a wonderful time celebrating the goodness of God and the reason why we worship.

See you there. Invite friends.
General election day will be May 9th, which is this coming Tuesday. Already, many British Columbians have participated in advanced voting. Still, there are many who are still undecided. Some lament the lack of credible choices. Others simply want change. Who should I vote for? Should I vote on the basis of party or personality? What if I dislike the leader of the party but prefer the candidate running in my riding? Should provincial concerns be more important than local neighbourhood matters? When push comes to shove, should I opt for policies over personality?
1) Person: There is no perfect candidate
No matter how we see it, every candidate is flawed in some way. Whichever party the person comes from is not going to change this basic fact at all. Some promises will be fulfilled while others would be broken. Expectations on how incumbents have performed will also vary from person to person. Continue reading “Thinking on Elections”
Praying: Set aside a specific time to pray. On a regular basis. (Example: If unsure, just pray the Lord’s Prayer each morning)
Obeying: Be intentional about obeying a Bible teaching in your reading. (Example: Forgiveness, Personal Devotion, Evangelism, Spiritual Practices, etc)
Offering: Pray about offering something, or perform a kind deed as an offering to God. (Example: Serve in a ministry that you’ve not done before)
Fasting: Be intentional about fasting from something; preferably something that you feel addicted to. (Example: Coffee, Chocolate, Sugar, iPads, Internet, etc.)

A friend of mine once told me his predicament. He moved to Vancouver when his kids were studying in Vancouver High Schools. After high school, they moved again to the East Coast because their kids started University studies there. After they graduated, they moved again. Where their children go, there the parents will be also. When will all these follow-the-children movements end? Surely life is much more than our children?
Times have changed. Unlike the past, where children usually follow their parents, many parents are now following their children. From schools to universities to job locations, some families literally move as one under the pretext of being together as one family. John Rosemond lamented about the shifting of parenting priorities compared to the culture back in 1972. At that time, his wife said:
“We are not going to make this child the center of our lives. This child is going to adapt to us, not the other way around.” (John Rosemond, Family Psychologist)
I have seen quite a number of my peers, including Christians, whose lives revolve around their little ones. Even their marriages revolve around their children. I call this “Child-Centered Parenting.” In this article, I want to encourage Christian parents to aim toward Christ-centered parenting.
