Sudbury Christian Messenger April 2017 Edition 3 faith-based movies/HolyWeek/To What Must I Die?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)

Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.    Robert Frost

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. New International Version

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.

  1.  Movie:  “Case for Christ”  |April 7 - |Sudbury
One man’s journey to solve the biggest mystery of all time

Based on the world-wide best-selling book

Opens in Sudbury at Silver City...Thanks to lots of behind the scenes work by KFM radio. This is a powerful presentation that will help you understand who Christ really is.

THE CASE FOR CHRIST
Based on the true story of an award-winning journalist who, working to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife, begins chasing down the biggest story of all time ... with unexpected, life-altering results.



Based on bestselling true story, The Case For Christ is for everyone who has ever pondered the existence of God. Coming to theaters Easter 2017

A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.

Based on Lee Strobel’s award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Forster, THE CASE FOR CHRIST opens in theaters April 7. It’s an ideal Easter-season movie for anyone who has ever pondered the existence of God … and what role He could play in their lives.

  1. Movie Screening with Q&A:  “Silence”     Faith & Film  |April 10  |Sudbury

Hello friends,

As some of you are aware, Rev. Dr. Spencer Boersma (First Baptist Church) and myself are collaborating on an initiative we are calling 'Shift' which will be a series of mediums (blog, podcast, film screenings, conferences, etc) which will focus on communicating the Gospel in our post-Christian world.

We recently had a very successful Faith & Film evening where we screened The Shack followed by a Q & A and have decided to have another Faith & Film event at the Downtown Movie Lounge during Holy Week on Monday, April 10.

We will be the movie 'Silence' to Sudbury for a 'one night only' screening  Monday, April 10 at 6:30pm followed by a Q & A. Tickets ($15 each) are available in advance only by emailing us at theshifthappens@gmail.com.

Space is limited to 130 seats and any help you could offer in promoting this Faith & Film event is greatly appreciated.

For those unfamiliar with this film, it is directed by Martin Scorsese and stars Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver and is based on the novel by Shusako Enzo, which recounts the work of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan at a time when Christianity was outlawed and self professing Christians were intensely persecuted.

It is a powerful portrayal about faith and doubt, suffering and God's mission in the world.

Note: the film received an 'R' rating in the USA due to some graphic violence (however the violence is not glorified but rather is accurate given the theme of the film)

Attached is the event poster for full information and here are the links to the movie trailer and a movie review from Christianity Today.

I hope you will consider attending and promoting this as part of your Lenten journey to the cross.

Love in Christ,
Rev. Jason Tripp

Monday, April 10  @ 6:30 p.m.     Q&A to follow          Tickets $15        Advance Purchase Only

city.

has blessed us with.

and learning about creative ways to live our faith in the marketplace.
~ Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the
Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his
understanding no one can fathom.
~He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
~Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
~but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings

Dramatic Music & Multimedia Production detailing the unjust execution of the man known as Jesus Christ.  Set in a future age, the lives of the people who executed Jesus come under great stress as they discover who this man really was and the hoax they have been forced to propagate.    Using the great commercial music and the music of the Church, as well as powerful videos, you will experience a dramatic and moving presentation that will lead you to examine some of life’s biggest questions.
“72:  The World’s Darkest Hours” is a powerful multimedia and music event designed to bring us face to face with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and its impact on our lives and our world.     This modern day depiction of the unjust death of a just man will draw you closer to the real story of the crucifixion.   If you look closely you may find yourself identifying with those who participated in this world-changing deed.

The eighth  meeting for people who are interested in planning for the 500th commemoration of the Reformation is on May 1/17   9:30 a.m.  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.

  1. Conference:  Bridging the Religious-Secular Divide  |May 8-9  |Ottawa

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.

OUR WHOLE SOCIETY CONFERENCE
How an inclusive society provide space for diverse perspectives and practices to be welcomed into the public sphere? Can we advance beyond simple toleration of religious and other differences to embrace a wider respect for all citizens? These are some of the questions to be addressed at the Our Whole Society conference, a multifaith conference supported by the EFC. There’s still time to join the discussion May 8–9, 2017 in Ottawa.

We are only six short weeks away from the 2017 National March for Life in our nation’s capital. The pro-life movement in Canada is abuzz with enthusiasm for what will be a very memorable day in our nation’s history.
Not only does this year mark our beloved Canada’s 150th anniversary, this May will also be the 20th anniversary of the March for Life. For 20 years, thousands upon thousands of Canadians have marched for life. What started off as a small gathering of a few hundred people in the late 90’s has now become the largest annual pro-life demonstration in Canada.
The joy and optimism of our young people, to the smiling young families with baby strollers, to the never-ending endurance of grandparents and seniors, the march for life brings out people from all walks of life, united by the same common goal which is to stand up and defend life from the time of conception until natural death.
Will you join us on May 11, 2017?
Will you join the thousands of Canadians who will gather on Parliament Hill at 12:30pm to proclaim, "Life, We Stand On Guard For Thee?"

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.

Provincial News
  1.  Province of Ontario Considering Care Coordination Service  re:  Bill 84 – Conscience Rights

Regarding Bill 84, it appears that concerned voices are leading to a shift in policy:

The objecting physicians will not have to refer euthanasia patients to the Care Coordination Service.  The purpose of the latter is to circumvent this problem.  I presume this service will be identical to that in Alberta.

A referral to the Care Coordination Service would be made by the individual themselves, the family, the holder of the power of attorney or, possibly, hospital staff such as a nurse who does not have any ethical concerns about physician assisted suicide.  Certainly a religious based hospital would not itself be obliged to make a referral.

  1.  Evangelical Fellowship of Canada Takes Legal Action to Support Doctors’ and Health Care Workers’ Conscience Rights

Tuesday, April 4, 2017
THE EFC FILES LEGAL ARGUMENTS IN CASE CHALLENGING CPSO’S REFERRAL POLICY
Last week, the EFC, the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario and the Christian Legal Fellowship filed legal arguments with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. They are supporting a legal challenge to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO)’s requirement that doctors provide referrals or conduct procedures that violate their consciences. A constitutional challenge was launched by five doctors, Christian Medical Dental Society, and two other physicians’ groups. The case is scheduled to be heard in June, and the decision could be precedent-setting for how professional associations treat conscientious objection.

THE EFC ASKS FOR CONSCIENCE PROTECTION FOR ONTARIO HEALTH-CARE WORKERS
The EFC submitted a brief last week to the Ontario Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs on March 30, 2017, saying that being forced to participate in hastened death violates deeply-held beliefs. The EFC is asking for conscience protection for health-care workers and facilities to be added to Ontario Bill 84.

  1.  Let’s Have a National Discussion About Canadian Values – by Anthony Furey, Toronto Sun


  1.  Canadian Family Research Responds to Federal Budget

Dear Cardus Family Friends:

Not with a bang, but with a whimper, the 2017 Federal Budget brought Canada a step closer to a national daycare program. As faithful readers of Cardus Family will know, this runs contrary to some basic principles of good public policy. It’s not equitable, insofar as it favours one type of care only. It’s not in keeping with child development principles, which tell us that small children have nothing to gain from being in institutional environments for long days. Finally, it’s not what parents prefer, and neither did the Liberals campaign on this. So why the program? Well, read our press release below. The government was actually very above board on the “why.” This funding isn’t about children or child care. It’s to get parents (specifically mothers) of young children into the paid labour force. The government announced the creation of new daycare spaces when just the day before another study revealed negative outcomes from Quebec’s daycare system, this time highlighting the differences according to sex: “Boys, for instance, saw a significant decline in motor social development, as well as increased hyperactivity and inattention. By contrast, only girls saw significant increases in emotional and separation anxiety.”

We’ll continue to provide a counter-view in the public square about what constitutes better daycare policy and what the real costs of these programs are. We stand in favour of parental choice, which really makes better sense than offering more institutional daycare spaces.

Thank you for your continued support. As always, I welcome your thoughts and feedback.
With appreciation,
Andrea Mrozek, Program Director

Pro-Life Pro-Family Turn Rocks Europeans at UN Commission on Women


Dear Colleague,

This week the UN annual conclave of women’s rights activists felt a sea change.

EU delegates seemed stunned when the U.S. began to oppose abortion and sex education for young children. They made an unprecedented two statements condemning the fact that abortion wasn't included as a part of health. After eight years of ardent abortion advocacy, the U.S. joined the Africans and other developing nations to qualify both “sexual and reproductive health” and “reproductive rights” as not including abortion where it is against the law. This is a major step forward.

In the civil society events, women’s rights advocates boldly exposed the way abortion advocacy is harming women’s rights.

But on the streets of New York, a “free speech” bus brought in by our friends from Spain was viciously vandalized just because it dared to say that girls and boys are different.

There is much work ahead of us, but we can be justifiably proud of our work this week. We are grateful to all the pro-life and pro-family delegates and coalition members, but especially to our own executive vice president, Lisa Correnti, for serving on the U.S. delegation that has brought us so much hope.

Spread the word. Be brave.

Yours sincerely,

Austin Ruse
President


Pro-Life Pro-Family Turn Rocks Europeans at UN Commission on Women

NEW YORK, March 24 (C-Fam) The world witnessed the United States returning to the pro-life fold after years of abortion advocacy from the Obama administration yesterday during the UN Commission on the Status of Women.  Read more >> 


Nikki Haley Signals Change of Direction for USUN

The Pro-life cause may get a reprieve at the United Nations thanks to the Trump administration during the Commission on the Status of Women, following several years of poundings from the pro-abortion Obama administration. Read more >>

Editor’s Note:   This change in policy at the UN is due to policy changes of the Trump Presidency, as compared to President Obama and Clinton policies.     In Canada, PM Justin Trudeau continues with the pro-abortion policies that were supported by Presidents Obama and Clinton.    $650 million in funding was announced recently from Canada to underdeveloped countries to pay for “reproductive services”, code for abortion services.


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

Words of Wisdom

DIRECTIONS  TO  OUR  FATHER'S  HOUSE.

   Make a Right onto Believeth Blvd.  Keep straight and go through
the Green Light, which is Jesus Christ.  There, you must turn onto
the Bridge of Faith, which is over troubled water.

   Now when you get off the bridge, make a Right turn and Keep
Straight.  You are on the King's Highway - Heaven-bound.
Keep going for three miles:  One for the Father, One for the Son,
and One for the Holy Spirit.

   Then take the Grace Blvd exit.  From there, make a Right turn
on Gospel Lane.  Keep Straight and then make another Right on
Prayer Road.  As you go on your way, Yield Not to the traffic on
Temptation Ave.  Also, avoid SIN  STREET because it is a DEAD
END.  Pass up Envy Drive, and Hate Avenue.  Also, pass
Hypocrisy Street, Gossiping Lane, and Backbiting Blvd.

   However, you will have to go down Long-suffering Lane,
Persecution Blvd. and Trials and Tribulations Ave, but that's all
right, because VICTORY Street is straight ahead!     AMEN!

When Your Cross Seems Too Heavy

When your "cross" seems too heavy remember
that God is there helping you carry it.  After all God has said,
 "NEVER WILL I LEAVE YOU; NEVER WILL I FORSAKE
 YOU."  ( HEBREWS 13:5 )

     So put your faith in God, and remember that Jesus said,
 "DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED.  TRUST
 IN GOD; TRUST ALSO IN ME.  ( JOHN 14:1 ) 
 Then let the wings of faith uphold you, uphold you indeed!

                  May the wings of faith uphold you
                  When your cross is hard to bear,
                  As temptations surround you,
                  And no one seems to care.
                  May the wings of faith surround you
                  And shield you from the pain
                  When sorrows overcome you
                  And teardrops fall like rain.
                  May you know that God is with you
                  In times of deep despair.
                  May the spirit, who's within you,
                  Confirm that He is there!
                  May the valley of the shadow
                  Provide angels unaware...
                  May the wings of faith uphold you
                  When your cross is hard to bear.

                                             Poet, Clay Harrison


Are you reluctant to release staff who fail to preform because you believe to fire is somehow un-Christian?
WRITTEN BY STEVE MARR
MONDAY, APRIL 3RD, 2017
If an employee is failing to do the job, seems not to put forth much effort or suffers from the "slows", you need to take action.

First, take the person aside. Explain exactly what changes are required in the job. Be clear, direct, but respectful.

Follow up, give coaching, and encourage when you see improvement. If the person fails to change, give at lease two warnings, preferably in writing.

If the slows continue, then discharge the individual, giving clearly the reasons, and pray they learn the lesson on the next job.


Why God Allows Pain

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.
As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.
They talked about so many things and various subjects.
When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber
said: "I don't believe that God exists."
"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.
"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God
doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick
people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would
be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving a God who
would allow all of these things."

The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist."
"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"
"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."
"Ah, but barbers DO exist! What happens is that people do not come to me."
"Exactly!"- affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too,
DOES exist! What happens is that people don't go to Him and do not look for Him.
That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING
"Faith is a journey, not a destination."
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each and every step of the way.


To What Must You Die?

The death from which we are called is healing from those things which bind us and hold us back: memories, fears, rejection, orother such things. What binds you? What keeps you from fully being your own most true self in Christ?
