When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty. ~~ Thomas Jefferson   

“Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout, ‘White Power!’ when nobody will shout, ‘Black Power!’ but everybody will talk about God’s power and human power.”       Martin Luther King

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch and do nothing" - Albert Einstein


Special Announcement from Reverend Karen Marcotte, A.C.E.S.

Many people gather to pray across this City of Greater Sudbury; it would be wonderful to know who & where they are so we can unite in prayer around common issues.  If you are part of a prayer group that meets regularly and like this idea please send contact information to Karen Marcotte (part of the A.C.E.S. leadership team),

1.    Church in Exile Conference  |September 30 & October 1  |Valley

Hello friends,

You and your parishioners are invited to participate in a conference we are hosting at Valleyview Community Church on September 30 & October 1.

We will be having Dr. Lee Beach (McMaster Divinity School) joining us to facilitate conversations about what it means to be faithful to Christ in a changing world in which we can feel like exiles in our own land.

Lee has written an excellent book on this topic entitled The Church in Exile: Living in Hope After Christendom and I look forward to gathering the body of Christ together to have this conversation together over a weekend.

Recently I had an opportunity to spend an afternoon with Dr. Beach and interview him in his office in Hamilton.  Here is the link to the interview to give you an overview of the content we will be discussing further over the weekend.

Interview with Dr. Lee Beach:

We also have a number of other local voices that will be speaking on various topics of importance and interest.   I can provide you with a detailed list of speakers and topics along with the conference posters.

We are offering groups rates of $25/person to churches/organizations that come with 5+ people and the fee includes lunch being offered on site on Saturday. To register please call 705-897-6200 or email us at

I look forward to worshiping and conversing together over this weekend together and excited to see the positive ripple effects it will have in our churches and neighbourhoods in Greater Sudbury.

Love in Christ,

14. Keeping Seniors Warm  |October 6  |Sudbury

In partnership with the City of Greater Sudbury’s Seniors’ Advisory Panel, the Donovan Elmwest Community Action Network (DEWCAN), Councillor Evelyn Dutrisac and the Lockerby Legion Ladies Auxiliary, volunteers stepped forward to collaborate on a new project now referred to as “KEEPING SENIORS WARM”. This project would provide $150.00 worth of necessary items (i.e. clothing, shoes, slippers, winter coats, boots, mitts and hats) to assist those seniors in our community that are in need. The seniors will meet for lunch at the Lockerby Legion, go shopping at Giant Tiger, and return to the Legion for ‘high tea’. This will be a very positive and beneficial experience and event for our seniors and volunteers.

The committee is working with Giant Tiger to obtain discounts on purchases and would like to extend an invitation to you and your organization/business/not-for-profit agency; to contribute to this first time event by either providing a monetary donation or some other type of donation that might be useful to seniors?

Keeping Seniors Warm will unfold on Thursday, October 6th, 2016, at 11:30 a.m. at the Lockerby Legion which is located at 2200 Long Lake Road in Sudbury. We are also in the process of gathering volunteer support from the community, friends and families to volunteer their time to assist with taking each senior shopping and socializing for the day to ensure that this project is a success.

There are currently 10 Seniors on the Waiting List to participate.

Should you wish to make a monetary or other type of contribution, please send a cheque or cash payable to: 

Keeping Seniors Warm
330 Mable Street
Sudbury, ON  P3C 4V9

If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact either Monique Mercier at 705-677-0533, Councillor Evelyn Dutrisac at 705-665-6216 or Mary Michasiw at 705-523-0832.

To:  Greater Sudbury Christian Church Members

From:  Rev. Glenda Morrisette and Monsignor Jim Hutton

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

The second meeting for people who are interested in planning for the 500th commemoration of the Reformation is on October 31 at 10:30 a.m. at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church on Regent Street in Sudbury.  

We are planning to hold a two-day symposium on Sep 21 & 22 of 2017 with three fantastic speakers. On the Thursday evening there will be a special ecumenical service with terrific music. The Bishop from the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada has already agreed to attend.

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. 

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.

Prayer Request for Religious Freedom in Canada

The EFC (Evangelical Fellowship of Canada)  invites supporters to pray for the British Columbia Court of Appeal, as it deliberates an important decision in the legal battle over Trinity Western University’s proposed law school. The EFC intervened with Christian Higher Education Canada to support religious freedom. The case was heard in June and a decision is expected shortly.

Pray for national revival in Canada

September 7th at noon PST - Live from Wales

If you are a part of an Ears to Hear member ministry (in any capacity) you are invited to a national, live, online prayer and impartation meeting from Wales. It will be hosted from "The War Room", within the Rees Howells Bible College (Bible College of Wales), the very room where intercession prevailed and turned the war during World War II.

This will be a time dedicated to contending for unprecedented, national revival in Canada. It's time for the tide to turn!

If you are not a part of a Ears to Hear member ministry, get involved with your local house of prayer, Burn or RLHOP. Each ministry will have all the information on how to join into the Wales Call.

For more information:

THE CALL TO PRAYER from the Red Leaf House of Prayer

•           Humility- God resists the proud! Let's contend for the Church of Canada to be strengthened in genuine humility, that allows us to be teachable, correctable, and allows unity to grow. Humility also releases the promise of grace, which is so needed in this hour. 

•           Universities- Pray for the universities in our nation that the Lord would begin to move in power. Pray for hearts of all those attending university to be awakened in hunger for God and truth. Pray for the fire of God to fall, and an erupting of a new Jesus Movement on campuses.
•           Revival- Revival is God drawing near to a community in a way that is undeniable. Lift your faith and cry out for the greatest revival that our nation has ever seen! Pray for the team of prayer leaders going to Wales in September, that there would be a massive, catalytic, impartation from the historic wells of the Welsh revival into Canada.
•           Pure Hearts- The Father is not just looking for outward obedience and holiness, but for purity of heart and motive. Ask the Lord to go deeper, to heal and convict, to uproot and to build until our hearts and motives are like His. The pure in heart will see God.

•           Prodigals- Pray for those who have walked away from the Church in confusion, offense, rebellion or wounding. Intercede for their restoration, but also for a healthy place got them to "come home" to, that local churches would be full of spirit and truth.

1.     An Open Letter to Colin Kaepernick From a Black Pro-Lifer With a Surprising Message

RYAN BOMBERGER   SEP 7, 2016   |   11:31AM    WASHINGTON, DC

2.      Israel’s Undeniable Jewish History Uncovered
We usually use our talking point e-mails to make you aware of new threats and challenges facing Israel.  Today, we'd like to share with you some important but far more uplifting news.  Over the course of the summer there have been a series of fascinating archeological discoveries in Israel. These discoveries confirm the authenticity and accuracy of the Bible that we read.  And these discoveries demonstrate the Jewish people's ancient connection to the land of Israel. No one can say that the Jews have no claim on this land, because every time someone digs in Israel they find more evidence that Jews have lived there for thousands of years.

One of the most significant recent finds was the discovery of an extremely rare synagogue from the Second Temple Era in the foothills of the Galilee. Only eight such synagogues have been found, and this is the first one found in what would have been a rural village at the time. Archaeologists say this could have been one of the synagogues where Jesus taught (Matthew 4:23), and this important discovery confirms what the New Testament says about the area where he ministered in the Galilee. This first century synagogue was uncovered only a few weeks ago, and provides an exciting glimpse of Jewish community life in the Galilee before the Romans destroyed the Second Temple

In another part of the Galilee, at a different ancient Jewish synagogue, archaeologists uncovered part of a beautiful mosaic floor depicting scenes from the Bible. Several biblical scenes had already been found at this site, but the two scenes found this summer are very rare. One of them shows Pharaoh’s soldiers being swallowed by giant fish in the Red Sea, and the other shows the pairs of animals loaded onto Noah’s Ark.

In Jerusalem, excavations have revealed an ancient neighborhood that may have been where the temple priests lived. This neighborhood was certainly wealthy, and archaeologists have found several rare items in these ancient houses - including a bathtub that has only been found in three other places in Israel. The artifacts found here paint a fascinating picture of how Jerusalem's elite Jewish citizens lived thousands of years ago.

One of the most common arguments Israel’s detractors use against modern Israel is the claim that Jews are foreigners brought to Israel after the Holocaust. This is a false talking point used by Israel’s enemies, but archaeological evidence irrefutably demonstrates that Jews have lived continuously in Israel for over 3,500 years. This is their homeland, and the ground is filled with the proof.

4.     Mother Teresa  (1910-1997)  Celebrate a New Saint

In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love."     Mother Teresa

During her lifetime, she was known as the “Saint of the Gutter” and was a source of inspiration to people of all faiths.

Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born August 27, 1910 in Shkup, Ottoman Empire (now Skopje, Albania). At the age of twelve years, she first received the call to
become a nun and realized that she was being called to serve the poor. She emigrated in 1928 and, at the age of 18, she entered the convent of the Sisters of Loreto’s convent in Dublin,Ireland as a novice. The Sisters of Loreto, a teaching order, sent her to India in 1929. Her English was poor and she had not taken
her first vows. She took her final vows as a nun and chose the name Teresa to honour her spiritual mentors St. Teresa of Avila and St. Thérèse de Lisieux. She started teaching in 1931. She enjoyed teaching and her students.

She was troubled by the poverty in the streets of Calcutta, and in September 1946, she received the call to work among the poor in Calcutta. In order to begin this work, she needed permission from her superiors and from Rome. She needed the support of the Archbishop of Calcutta, Ferdinand Perier. He insisted that
she meditate and pray, and if she still felt that way, he wanted her to answer some questions dealing with who, what, where and how. Her release from the Sisters of Loreto and permission from Rome took nearly two years. On August 16, 1948, she replaced her European religious habit of the Sisters of Loreto with a white Indian sari and began her mission to serve the poorest of the poor. In 1950, the Pope sanctioned her order, the Missionaries of Charity. The Missionaries of Charity took four vows, chastity, obedience, poverty and a fourth vow, to give “wholehearted and free service to the poorest of the poor. The vow of poverty meant that they would live just as the poor do. She based her life on five spiritual principles, prayer, respect for all religions, poverty, humility and joy. Her order established a
hospice, centers for the blind, aged, and disabled and a leper colony.

In 1963, she was awarded India’s Padmashri prize for services to the people of India, and in 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

This tiny and thin woman who served the poorest of the poor died on September 5, 1997 and was given an Indian State funeral. The only other person who was honoured in this way was Mahatma Gandhi in 1948. She was beatified by Pope John Paul Ii on October 19, 2003. Pope Francis canonized Mother Teresa on September 4, 2016 the day he chose to celebrate the Jubilee of Volunteers and Workers of Mercy. Mother Teresa is a symbol of God’s mercy for the poor and the discarded of the world.

Financial Support Requests

1.     Sudburian, John Lundrigan, Requests Help Through “Go Fund Me”

Round two of Chemotherapy down, It’s truly beating the hell out of me. This is a fight I'm determined to win. Although it’s something I would never wish on an enemy.
Thank you so much to all who have supported me in every way. Thanks for the donations and the shares to friends in social media. You are all angels. Thank You!

LifeSite News Fundraising Request

Dear friends of life and family,
Two days after launching our annual Fall Campaign, you have helped us raise more than $10,000 towards our $235,000 goal, which we absolutely must reach in order to fund this international pro-life and pro-family news agency for the next quarter.

Though it is challenging in the current economic climate, you have never let us down - because you know how important truth is in the culture war!


This free news service, which is on track to reach tens of millions of people around the globe this year, simply isn’t sustainable without the support of committed pro-life people like you, who want to see our culture awakened from its slumber!
Keep in mind, LifeSiteNews is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization employing nearly 25 full and part-time staff around the world - many of whom have left much more lucrative professional careers to be a part of this great battle in defense of life and family. (You certainly won’t find any of our staff or management making six-figure salaries!)

That’s why you might be surprised to learn that LifeSiteNews has no endowment fund, and no large savings or investments. No, nearly every dollar we receive in support of our mission goes right back into furthering that same mission!

In fact, having finalized our yearly audit this summer, I can tell you that when you donate to LifeSiteNews, 85% of your donation goes directly towards that mission - defending the unborn, marriage, the family and religious freedom through hard-hitting journalism which seeks to bring the truth to countless millions around the world!

The IRS will be publishing the results of that audit to the public in the coming months.

We make every effort to ensure our overhead costs are minimal so that your donation is truly making a HUGE impact on our ability to investigate, write and spread the original news reports that are so vital to the success of our battle for a Culture of Life.


We are constantly surprising folks, particularly other pro-life and pro-family leaders, with the amount that we accomplish from year to year on a fraction of the budget of most organizations.
After all, with over 25 full and part-time staff located in 7 countries around the world, and website development to handle 50-60 million pageviews each year, we’ve been told our annual budget should be 3-4 times larger than it is.
But, every member of our incredible team is personally committed to exposing the Culture of Death and promoting the Culture of Life, and bringing this Truth-Mission to tens of millions of people around the globe, often making huge personal sacrifices of time and resources to do so!
If you trust us to continue bringing the hard-hitting truth about life and family to the world each day, without compromise, will you help us with the most generous donation you can right now?


Your donation during our fall campaign enables us to:
•           produce from 10 to 22 well-researched articles a day
•           produce an increasing number of on-site video reports
•           give much-needed public exposure to the incredible work of pro-life and pro-family groups and individuals around the world
•           accept speaking engagements around the world
•           use the latest social media marketing techniques to spread our reporting
•           continuously improve our cutting edge website to reach the widest audience possible
•           maintain the support staff necessary to field numerous requests each day
As you can imagine, it requires great skill, professionalism and resources to serve the number of people and organizations we serve here in the U.S. and around the globe.
Your donation makes all of this possible!
We need readers like you to step forward today to support the mission of LifeSiteNews. With you standing by our side, together we will continue to impact the culture with our one-of-a-kind investigative news reporting.
Your support will help us to be that beacon of light shining in the darkness, when the world around us threatens our most deeply-held convictions regarding the sanctity of life, family, and marriage.

God bless you,

John-Henry Westen

  1. Petition and Support Request from J. B. Marjanac for his Oakville Parish
From: J.B. Marjanac [] of  Sts. Peter and Paul Serbian Orthodox Church in Sudbury

I am working on a project with our church in Oakville, ON which is facing being expropriated by the Halton DIstrict School Board. In an effort to help the HDSB, and keep our parish alive, we offered to split the land, giving the school most of it. Our next door neigbours are an elderly couple with more land than us and we are urging the HDSB to shift their plans just a bit so they would take some of our neighbour's land, and most of our.

Even with our good will, we have found no resolution to the problem as of yet.. We have launched a campaign to lobby the school board trustees to at least hear our appeal.

Unfortunately, the Town of Oakville has made it clear to us that there is absolutely no land to offer us in exchange.

The first step of the process is this petition which we launched, and have almost 2000 signatures so far. Would you be so kind as to share this with the Sudbury Christian community, and your mailing list please.

The link for the petition is

Our FB page is is

If you could ask anyone interested to sign. leave a comment, and share the petition it would make our presentation much stronger.

Thanks very much!

God bless,

John Marjanac

3.      I enjoyed “Ben Hur” 2016 movie for a variety of reasons

It's a drag going to a movie that your companions say has bad reviews so I really girded my loins expecting the worst out of Ben-Hur. But, Ben-Hur is actually a very enjoyable movie and to me, an unfair victim of negative reviews. I like a movie with a story that is cohesive from start to finish, and Ben-Hur has that. The visual appeal of the movie's setting was also a big plus, especially the Jerusalem environs. The action scenes were just fine for me. They were compelling and realistic without being gratuitous. The sea battle was quite gripping. The relationship scenarios offered good drama and were especially strong in scenes involving tensions and conflict with the Romans. As a Christian I was also very comfortable with the Biblical aspect and the presence of Jesus. All in all, a fine movie that I think good-hearted, happy people will appreciate seeing.

The idea that one’s sex is a feeling, not a fact, has permeated our culture and is leaving casualties in its wake. Gender dysphoria should be treated with psychotherapy, not surgery.

                                     The Puzzle:

     A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by
his little daughter, Kelly.  Finally, he tore a sheet out of his
magazine on which was printed the map of the World.

    Then tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to Kelly, and said,
"Go into the other room and see if you can put this together."
He was sure that would keep her busy all afternoon!

    After only a few minutes, Kelly returned and handed him the
map, correctly fitted together.  The father was surprised and asked
how she had finished so quickly.

    "Oh," she said, on the other side of the paper is a picture of
Jesus.  When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then the
World came together.....
                              __________________There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:
1. He called everyone brother.
2. He liked Gospel.
3. He also couldn't get a fair trial.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:
1. He went into His Father's business.
2. He lived at home until he was 33.
3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian:
1. He talked with His hands.
2. He had wine with His meals.
3. He used olive oil.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:
1. He never cut His hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian:
1. He was at peace with nature.
2. He ate a lot of fish.
3. He talked about the Great Spirit.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:
1. He never got married.
2. He was always telling stories.
3. He loved green pastures.

But the most compelling evidence of all 3 proves that Jesus was a woman:
1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food.
2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it.
3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up, because there was work to do.

AMEN !                                  

Words of Wisdom
1.     Christian Theology Wrapped Up in One Song

“O Glorious Day” as sung by Casting Crowns

2.     The Dearest Friend!

                   I have a Friend in Jesus,
                   He's ever walking near
                   To share my every burden
                   And take away my fear.

                   It's in His precious name I pray
                   To our God above;
                   It's through His sacred teachings that
                   I learned the way to love.

                   God did not put me on this earth
                   To walk life's path alone;
                   He sent His Son to be my Guide,
                   The dearest Friend I've known.

                   No other One could be so true,
                   He bore the cross for me;
                   Because He died for my sins
                   I must ever faithful be.
                   If you are lonely on life's way
                   And feel that no one cares,
                   You have a Friend in Jesus
                   If you will kneel in prayer.

                                          Poet, Kay Hoffman
