Sudbury Christian Messenger March 2017 Edition

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle. --Winston Churchill

A liberal is someone who feels a great debt to his fellow man, which debt he proposes to pay off with your money. -- G. Gordon Liddy

A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on Paul.

Our common love of Jesus trumps any political differences of opinion! (Pun intended)   An American pastor recently remarked 'We don't pledge our allegiance to an elephant or a donkey but to the Lamb.

BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, WITH THANKSGIVING,  LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN TO GOD; AND THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS IN CHRIST JESUS.   PHILIPPIANS 4:6-8

 IF ANY OF YOU LACKS WISDOM, HE SHOULD ASK GOD, WHO GIVES GENEROUSLY TO ALL WITHOUT FINDING FAULT, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO HIM.    ( JAMES 1:5 NIV)

SILENT VIGIL

We stand in peaceful protest of the spreading violence throughout the world, and call upon government and non-government agencies, corporations, groups, and individuals to do everything in their power to prevent and end violence around the globe
We are drawn from diverse faiths & backgrounds, religious and secular, to actively oppose all that leads to violence among people and nations and the bankruptcy of the human spirit it represents.
We stand in silent vigil united in resolve and purpose, to struggle against the use of violence as a means to settle disagreement and disputes at all levels. To do so we need to start with our own hearts and minds, joining with all persons clear in thought and mind and faith, inviting them to find common ground.
Please join with us as we stand here now and in coming weeks for one hour at the end of our working week, Fridays, 4 to 5 pm.

“From the Director of The Triumph comes a film about life and what comes after.

Apparition Hill explores one of the greatest paranormal mysteries in the world.

Documentary. 1 hour, 55 minutes. Rated PG-13.

Apparition Hill begins with a contest, a contest seeking video entries from individuals interested in going on a pilgrimage to Medjugorje, a famous site in Bosnia-Herzegovina wherein in 1981 six Croatian children reported experiencing Marian apparitions, supernatural visitations from the Virgin Mary. Three of the six visionaries continue to report daily apparitions of Mary to the present day, 35 years later. Medjugorje has become a popular pilgrimage site visited by an estimated 20 million people.

“It’s either the most important miracle since Jesus walked the earth, or it’s the biggest hoax in the history of mankind,” director Sean Bloomfield remarks during a radio interview in the film. It is a diversity of travelers – nay, pilgrims – on this journey, each bringing with them something they are carrying, some with heavier burdens than others. Each searching for something.

….After the film ended the first time I saw it in a theater at St. Charles, Illinois, we – the audience – knew that evening that we had witnessed something special in this movie which spoke to an unavoidable dimension of the human journey—of the deepest struggles, hopes, and joys of being alive. Poignant, beautiful, and heart-breaking, Apparition Hill ends where it began, with the mystery of faith and hope shining through the darkest struggles of life, giving them meaning. It is a remarkable movie that takes you on a remarkable journey–a film underscored by a poetic beauty and transformative prowess that can lead to a metamorphosis of the soul, changing the lives of those who see it.

By Daniel Maria Klimek, T.O.R.”

Peg Byars is the central Canadian rep and is bringing a small team with her.                Dean Bye, the director of Return Ministries
is coming as part of the team.                                              

Coming to Sudbury on March 25 & 26, 2017  at the Lexington hotel on Brady Street    

Dear Friends:

Dean Bye and the Return Ministries team have been invited to share in city-wide meetings in Sudbury by Maranatha Apostolic Ministries - and do we have a story to tell!

The Lord God of Israel is doing a mighty work in Israel and the Nations as He opens the eyes of both Jews and Christians to realize that TOGETHER we have a huge Biblical calling that is still a mystery to many in the body.

Unprecedented things are happening as barriers to working together come down and partnerships are formed for the advance of God's plans for the return and restoration of His scattered people back to Israel. Christians have a key part to play in this return and Dean will share the Biblical mandate so necessary to unlock the mystery so we can take our part in history - His story.

Let's come TOGETHER to seek the Lord and His word!


Times: Saturday 10am & 2pm ,    Sunday 7pm   


Email patriciaahughes7@gmail.com for more info.

Here is God's invitation:

Then they (strangers - that's us!) will rebuild
the ancient ruins, they will raise up the former devastations,
and they will repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations  . . .
you will eat the wealth of nations . . . Isaiah 61:4

The wealth of the nations shall come to you . . . Isaiah 60:5

Your gates will be open continually . . . so that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations . . . Isaiah 60:11

IF YOU HAVE EVER WANTED TO BLESS and VOLUNTEER IN ISRAEL -
COME TO THESE MEETINGS!

A love offering will be taken at the meetings for the expanding work of
Return Ministries in North America and Israel.

It’s the only major Canadian Political Party that allows pro-life MPs; a minor Party that does so, also, is the Canadian Heritage Party.


In the February 2017 Edition of The Interim, Campaign Life Coalition wrote   “…pro-life Canadians must vote for Trost and Lemieux because their records and actions during the leadership race are ‘unambiguously deserving of our support.’   Gunnarson also noted that if the two most prominent socially conservative candidates do poorly, the media and party establishment could use the results to dismiss pro-life and pro-family voters as politically insignificant….being active in the parties is the best way to ensure Canadians have leaders who share our values.”

…”being active in the parties is the best way to ensure Canadians have leaders who share our values”.


In order to vote for the next Leader, which, as we know, will be an important decision, people must have become Members of the Conservative Party of Canada by March 28th.           Voting will occur by mail-in ballot in May.         The results will be announced May 28th in Toronto Congress Centre.

It costs $15 to become a member.   Membership can be completed online using a credit card

The Leadership Debate will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 6:00 pm, but broadcast on tv, at CPAC or through www.conservative.ca or YouTube

Please pray about this important position in Canadian society!        Take action!             God bless Canada!


Membership can be completed online:  https://donate.conservative.ca/membership

To:  Greater Sudbury Christian Church Members

From:  Rev. Glenda Morrisette, Monsignor Jim Hutton, and Dr. Christopher Duncan-Hales

Re:  a message to Christian Churches about the 500th commemoration of the Reformation.

The seventh meeting for people who are interested in planning for the 500th commemoration of the Reformation is on early April at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church on Regent Street in Sudbury.  

We are holding a two-day Conference on Sep 21 & 22 of 2017 with four fantastic speakers. On the Thursday evening there will be a special, historical, exciting ecumenical service with inspiring music. The Bishop from the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada has already agreed to attend, along with two other Bishops.

We are looking for people who would like to help us organize this event.  We have small teams organized, and we would be happy to have more involved, so that no one person has a lot to accomplish.  Especially at this time we are seeking individuals from different denominations who have Marketing skills/interest.

We are excited about this upcoming event and we hope that many of you will come out to hear our plans, give us your input and help us organize a wonderful event for Northern Ontario.

Peace,

The Canadian Interfaith Conversation gathers representatives of around 40 faith communities and faith-based organizations who believe that people of faith can contribute positively to the benefit of all people in Canadian society. As we note in our Charter Vision, the practice of religion and its impact on the identities of Canadians is an enduring feature of this country.

We advocate for religion in a pluralistic society and in Canadian public life, believing that conversation is essential to doing so effectively. A key conversation coming up will be Building Our Whole Society: Religion and Citizenship at Canada’s 150th. This is the third of our “Bridging the Religious-Secular Divide” conference series; it will be held at Saint Paul University, Ottawa, May 8-9, 2017.

Would you please  Save the Dates of September 21 & 22, 2017  in your calendars for the Commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

This event will be held in Sudbury at the Holiday Inn

Nord500North is a Conference that commemorates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It is an opportunity to address a critical moment of our Christian history by moving beyond the controversies and disagreements that have often come between us and prevented us from working together.
Presentations by key note speakers, workshops, and discussions will describe where we as followers of Jesus have been, where we are today, and where we are going. There will also be a strand on how we can make right relations with Canada’s Indigenous people as part of ongoing reformation efforts.
We are branches of the same vine. In a world that needs the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, our hope and prayer is that this event will inspire participants to be bold, creative, and joyful in our commitment to love each other and serve the world.

35 Greater Sudbury Christians gathered together on March 7th to Launch Nord500North.     The 5’ tall, pine cross constructed by Jim Krats of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church was displayed and Churches were able to sign up to have it in their Churches as a visual message that the Nord500North Conference is coming up Sept. 21-22/17.    The Holy Spirit created a warm, “good mood” according to Peter Moher of Holy Redeemer Parish.    Betty of St. Patrick’s said, “I was so happy to be there and I left with a renewed sense of hope for the world!  I do plan to attend the Conference in September.”
That evening, the first of three study sessions on the history of the Reformation Movement was held at Trinity and Holy Redeemer.    Our facilitators, Tony Chezzi, Cory Brunati, and Chris Duncanson-Hales, along with videography, led interactive sessions that were a blessing to all who gathered ………20 people at Trinity.
Thank you, Lord, for the work of your Spirit that is evident in Greater Sudbury.

Citizen Response

  1. Thought-provoking words on Christian denominationalism

Just reading Luke 5: 36-39 about the old and new wineskins.    I am inspired to share what the Life Application Study Bible had to say by way of explanation:

…”Like old wineskins, the Parisees were too rigid to accept Jesus, who could not be contained in their traditions or rules.  Christianity required new approaches, new traditions, new structures.   Our church programs and ministries should not be so structured that they have no room for a fresh touch of the Spirit, a new method, or a new idea.   We, too, must be careful that our hearts do not become so rigid that they prevent us from accepting the new way of thinking that Christ brings.   We need to keep our hearts pliable so we can accept Jesus’ life-changing message.”

Then, regarding Luke 6: 6,7 ….”Which would an observer say is more characteristic of your Christianity – the positives or the negatives?   Are you more concerned about what people shouldn’t be doing than you are about advancing God’s kingdom?  Is your way of being a Christian the only way?   And what about your church?  The Pharisees thought their religious system had all the answers.  They could not accept Jesus because he did not fit into their system..  Beware of thinking that your church has all the answers.   No religious system is big enough to contain Christ completely or to fulfill perfectly all his desires for the world.   Christianity is the most positive force to ever hit this planet.   Make sure you don’t let it degenerate into a bunch of negatives.”

  1. Did you know this about the “post-abortion fallout”?


Diane
Here’s a message from my niece after receiving your “Time-Sensitive Call to Action & Update // Canada Moves Towards Putting MORE Money Towards Abortion”
A non-practicing nurse, she writes from Halifax.

Thank you for sending this. As you probably know, I am involved with a pregnancy care centre. We do post abortion counselling and this is another area of the abortion process
that is never discussed by the media. Moms who have to deal with the effects of post abortion depression, suicide tendencies and possible difficulties becoming pregnant again.
We had a girl come to Christ through our post abortion counselling last year and many others have found healing of deep sadness as well. The girl who became a Christian
had no religious upbringing but had a good family. Her testimony was very powerful.
            God bless you,

  1. Stop fake news and fake science at National Geographic Magazine!

National Geographic magazine is wrongly using a nine-year-old boy to aggressively push gender ideology to children.
Please sign our petition telling editors of the magazine that gender ideology is not only fallacy but harmful to children.
SIGN


National Geographic is wrongly using a nine-year-old boy to aggressively push gender ideology to children as a new social norm.

Please sign our petition telling editors of the magazine to retract and to stop pushing fake science. Gender ideology is not only a fallacy but harmful to children and considered child abuse by leading experts!


Gender ideology maintains the belief that being male and female are social and cultural constructs completely unrelated to someone’s biological sex. Biological males can maintain the belief they are female and the opposite for biological females.

This fallacy is being pushed in the liberal agenda to children as young as three-years-old.

Susan Goldberg, Editor in Chief of National Geographic Magazine claims: The male and female genetic markers "XY” or “XX” "don't tell the full truth" and calls for a "gender revolution."

Sign our petition demanding Susan Goldberg stop pushing her liberal lies to children.

What do the leading experts think?
On August 17, 2016, the American College of Pediatricians issued a statement saying “gender Ideology harms children,” and “urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.” In their statement, they go on to say “a person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”

These statements are supported by three leading medical doctors in the field, including Paul McHugh, M.D., University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The statement goes on to say "Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse."

Demand National Geographic stop!

Thank you,
Gregory Mertz and the entire CitizenGO team

APH also discourages having ‘multiple’ sexual partners.

…..Also disturbing is the fact resistance to treatments is being detected.  In fact, officials are down to one last effective class of antibiotics, cephalosporins, to treat the infection….”



Give “political correctness” a failing grade – Michele Mandel, Toronto Sun

“It’s time we gave rampant political correctness on campus a failing grade.

A Ryerson University student is told she can only use feminist sources for her paper — and don’t bother consulting Statistics Canada. It’s part of the patriarchy.

A University of Toronto professor is threatened and vilified by peers and students because he dared to use his right to free speech and refuse to use gender neutral pronouns.

A renowned criminal lawyer is told she isn’t welcome to speak on campus by women’s studies students who object to her defence of Jian Ghomeshi on sexual assault charges.

When did institutions of higher learning decide there is only one way to think — and anything outside that world view can be censored and silenced? And why are we funding this insanity? …..”

  1. Conservative Party of Canada Leadership Race Update
Debate –

Campaign Life Coalition is urging supporters to buy a $15 membership in order to support the pro-life candidates who are running to lead the Conservative Party. Gunnarson said the leadership race is “vitally important” because “with social conservatives being shut out of the NDP and Liberals, the Tories are the only mainstream party in which people who are pro-life and pro-family are tolerated, and they must become involved to ensure these issues do not disappear completely from the public square.”

Memberships can be purchased online at www.conservative.ca

Financial Support Requests

  1. Community Emergency Fund

The Social Planning Council of Sudbury (SPC Sudbury) has launched a GoFundMe page with a goal of raising $10,000.00 for the Community Emergency Fund.  100% of funds collected go to the individuals and families in crisis!
This fund is a fund of last resort that helps support individuals and families over 20 years in urgent need with food, heat, hydro, rent, prescriptions, transportation, assistance with moving, dental work, storage fees and special request. When individuals in the community have nowhere else to turn, The Community Emergency Fund is there to help.  For example, the Community Emergency Fund is utilized in situations where the hydro is going to be turned off, a family with young children has exhausted their food bank allotment, or an eviction notice has been given.  In the past 10 years the Community Emergency Fund has disbursed over $100,000.00 to vulnerable individuals and families in crisis.

The fund is administered in kind through the SPCS and is funded through community donations.

REQUESTS

  1. Church of the Epiphany Has an 18’x6’ Cross to Give Away

The Church of the Epiphany inherited a large interior cross from Church of the Resurrection when it closed a few years ago.  We have recently repainted our church and have decided not to rehang that cross.  It is in excellent condition - light oak and rather modern, but it is 18 feet tall and 6 feet wide so needs a substantial wall on which to hang.  We would like to give it to any parish that might like it or to any Christian community with an inside soaring wall for it!  Please express any interest or question to Barbara Bolton, People's Warden at Epiphany at 705-674-1691 or at rbandbb2@gmail.com


  1.  Request re: Conscience Rights for Doctors

Dear People of Conscience

I’m writing to ask for your church or organization to participate in the Call for Conscience Campaign. It is being organized by the Coalition for HealthCARE and Conscience - which includes the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, Archdiocese of Toronto and Christian Medical and Dental Society of Canada among others. This campaign has been approved by the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of ON and the EFC. 

As you may know the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has adopted a policy which requires all physicians to make an effective referral for services like euthanasia and assisted suicide even if they conscientiously object to these services. This has placed many Christian doctors in a dilemma - they must choose between their conscience and their career. With the introduction of Bill 84 on medical aid in dying at the Ontario legislature we have the opportunity to amend the Bill to include conscience protection for all health care workers. We are asking churches and organizations to make their members aware of the campaign, so that they will contact their MPPs to ask for this amendment.

We have a suite of resources with step by step instructions that can be used to help people organize these tasks. Included in the package below is a church handout, bulletin insert and sample letter for your members to sign. Here are the links to the resources and our video that explains our case.

Resources: bit.ly/callforconscience
Videos: http://bit.ly/consciencevideo

Too often policies are put in place that have unfortunate outcomes and there is a lack of sensitivity and concern for people of any faith background who do not want to be involved with ending the lives of their patients. We need to defend and uphold the rights of all health care workers to be able to care for patients without having to act against their faith.

Please assist us by making your members aware of this issue and asking them to send their concerns to their MPP. This can be done with by going to canadiansforconscience.ca and sending an automatic email, or by members completing the template letter individually after a church service and delivering all of the letters to your MPP as a congregation.

This needs to be done as soon as possible as the legislation will be going to the Committee stage within the next week.

Please pray for the success of this campaign.

Thanks,

Larry

Words of Wisdom

World Wonders

THE HEAVENS PRAISE YOUR WONDERS, O LORD, YOUR
 FAITHFULNESS TOO, IN THE ASSEMBLY OF THE HOLY
ONES.
                             ( PSALM 89:5 * NIV )

Dear Friends,
     Now in this complicated World we live in, we often over look
or take for granted simple things that are true blessings indeed! 
 However, when we stop and look at life through a child's eyes,
 we sometimes become more aware of these blessings.  So
 today we will do just that through a message that I received from
 one of our Brothers In Christ, for out of the mouths of babes
sometimes comes great wisdom indeed! 

     After all; GOD PERFORMS WONDERS THAT CANNOT BE
 FATHOMED, MIRACLES THAT CAN NOT BE COUNTED. 
 ( JOB 5:9 *NIV )
  
                  The Seven Wonders Of The World!

     A group of students were asked to list what they thought were
the present Seven Wonders of the World.  Though there was
some disagreement, the following got the most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids

2. Taj Mahal

3. Grand Canyon

4. Panama Canal

5. Empire State Building

6. St. Peter's Basilica

7. China's Great Wall

     While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one quiet
 student hadn't turned in her paper yet, so she asked the girl if
she was having trouble with her list.

     The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my
 mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well,
 tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

     The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders
 of the World are:

1. to See

2. to Taste

3. to Touch

4. to Hear

She hesitated a little, and then added,

5. to Feel

6. to Laugh

7. and to Love

     The room was so full of silence you could have heard a pin
 drop. Those things we overlook as simple and "ordinary" are
 truly wondrous. This is a gentle reminder that the most precious
 things in life cannot be bought. God gave them to us.

     Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect, it just means
you've decided to see beyond the imperfections.   So,
 may you always be happy and see beyond.   Amen.

With My Love & Prayers,

                "Why Worry About Tomorrow?"   
          
                Why worry about tomorrow
                  And the rising of the sun,
               Of anguish over past mistakes
                    That cannot be undone?

              Why waste life's precious moments
                 On things that bruise the heart
                  When today is ours to fashion
                         Into a work of art?

              Today comes but once, my friend,
                        It never can return--
                So use it wisely while you can,
               There's a lesson you may learn.

                   Let history record the past
                And tomorrow come what may.
                  Be content to do your best
                  With what you have today!

Be of Good Cheer

THESE THINGS I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU, THAT IN ME
 YOU MAY HAVE PEACE.  IN THE WORLD YOU WILL
 HAVE TRIBULATION; BUT BE OF GOOD CHEER, I HAVE
 OVERCOME THE WORLD.  
                            ( JOHN 16:33 *NKJV )

     Now in this World today, there are times when we may
feel overwhelmed by what is going on all around us.  After
all with wars and terrorist's threats, terrible weather disasters
happening etc., it is enough to make one wonder what is
happening to this World today.

     If all of these events cause you to feel overwhelmed, and the
tribulation in this World is weighing heavily on your mind,
 remember that God is always with you, and these events are
unfolding as prophesied.  Also remember that our Savior Jesus
Christ said, "LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED; FOR
 YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME."
 ( JOHN 14:1 ) For when we put all of our trust in Jesus'
 hands, we will find peace for; HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE.
 ( EPHESIANS 2:14 )

     FINALLY, BRETHREN, WHATEVER THINGS ARE TRUE,
 WHAT EVER THINGS ARE NOBLE, WHATEVER THINGS
ARE JUST, WHATEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATEVER
 THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD
 REPORT, IF THERE IS ANY VIRTUE AND IF THERE IS
 ANYTHING PRAISEWORTHY-MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS.
( PHILIPPIANS 4:8 ) instead of the troubles of this World.
After all it is then that; THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES
 ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND
 MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.  ( PHILIPPIANS 4:7 )
 and you will know true peace as you have never known it before.  
 Amen,  Amen Indeed!
