THIS IS WHAT THE LORD SAYS-YOUR REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL:  "I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, WHO TEACHES YOU WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU, WHO DIRECTS YOU IN THE WAY YOU SHOULD GO."          ( ISAIAH 48:17 *NIV )



OUR MOUTHS WERE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, OUR TONGUES WITH SONGS OF JOY. For THE LORD HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR US, AND WE ARE FILLED WITH JOY.           ( PSALM 126:2-3 )


"The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living."


What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity?   Our perspective toward it.    Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.”   J. Sidlow Baxter

  CELEBRATING CANADA’S CHRISTIAN HERITAGE
by Pastor Rob Weatherby

Today we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.

We can all think of many things about our country to be thankful for. For me, one of them is our strong Christian heritage. Many of the world’s 200+ countries don’t have one. What is the evidence for ours? Take a look…

Our Pioneers
Most of our country’s early explorers and pioneers were committed Christians. Names like John Cabot, Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain. In their writings they clearly stated that their purpose in risking their lives to discover and explore the New World was for the glory of God and to share His truth with the native people.

Our Nation-builders
Most of Canada’s nation-builders were committed Christians. Names like David Thompson (explorer of western Canada), George Brown (father of Confederation and founder of the “Globe and Mail”), William Howland (mayor of Toronto), Timothy Eaton (businessman), Nellie McClung (moral reformer), Winfred Grenfell (medical missionary to Labrador), George Vanier (Governor-General) and Ernest Manning (Alberta premier) come to mind.

Our Name        
Leonard Tilley was one of the delegates to the Confederation meetings in Charlottetown, PEI, in 1864. During his morning devotions he read         Psalm 72:8 – “He shall have dominion also from sea to sea”. He proposed that the new country should be called “the Dominion of Canada”. Sir John A. Macdonald and the rest agreed.

Our Parliament Buildings                   
As you enter the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill you can see 3 biblical verses engraved over the arches -- Psalm 72:1, Psalm 72:8 and Prov. 29:18. These Scriptures speak of prayer, God’s justice, righteousness, rule and vision. Our nation was founded on these principles.

Our Churches
For the first 100 years of our history, most churches in Canada were full and vibrant. Many had healthy Sunday Schools. Most Canadians called themselves Christians. It was the dominant worldview and Christian clergy and lay leaders were influential opinion-makers.
     
Our Schools
Most of our early educational institutions were founded by Christian individuals or denominations. Egerton Ryerson  (founder of public education in Ontario) declared that his primary task was to make men Christians. Baptists founded Acadia and McMaster, Lutherans founded Waterloo, Anglicans founded Dalhousie and Western, and Catholics founded St. Michael’s and Saint Mary’s to name a few.


Our Hospitals
Canada’s first hospital, Hotel-Dieu de Quebec, was founded by a Catholic order in 1639.
Catholic nuns still serve in hospitals and nursing homes across the country. Methodists, Presbyterians, Salvation Army and Lutherans also founded our earliest hospitals and nursing homes.

Our Media
During our first century, our media (newspapers, books and later movies) were morally wholesome and respectful of God and Christianity. Many movies had biblical themes such as “The Ten Commandments”, “Ben Hur” and “The Greatest Story Ever Told”.

Our Priorities  
“The Lord’s Day Act” became law in 1906. It prohibited Sunday business so Canadians could enjoy a day of rest on Sunday. It reflected the 4thcommandment found in Exodus 20:8-11. It was ended in 1985 by the Supreme Court.

Our Morality                                        
For the first 100 years of our history, issues like abortion, euthanasia and same-sex marriage were unthinkable. Pornography and public swearing were taboo, marriage was strong and divorce was rare. Most Canadians believed that “righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). Our biggest city was even called “Toronto the Good”.

In God’s eyes, I believe Canada was a great nation! For the first two-thirds of our history we enjoyed a strong Christian heritage. Has anything changed in the last 50 years? We’ll tackle that question in part 2 of this series. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, Happy Birthday Canada… and thank God for our Christian heritage!


Pastor Rob Weatherby serves the Bethel Baptist Church family in Whitefish.

Mending Fences
            Who would have thought! In a world busy tearing itself apart there is a group of people mending fences.
            They are a conglomeration of people from Sudbury and the region: young and old, female and male, clergy and lay people, Catholic, Protestant and First Nations. A common vision draws them together.
            Five hundred years ago the Christian Church was fractured. Martin Luther, a German monk, denounced corruption in the church. He refused to recant and was excommunicated. The Reformation and the Lutheran Church began and eventually many new churches and denominations. To date the Christian Church has 33,000 different churches and denominations.
            Like any family fight bitterness ensued and like many family feuds carried on for generations.
            Rev. Glenda Morrisette of Trinity Lutheran Church and Monsignor Jim Hutton of St Patrick’s Catholic Church were moved to join forces and plan an event to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation and the 50thanniversary of the Catholic-Lutheran Dialogue. They issued invitations to all other denominations in the area and also First Nations to join them. Nord 500 North was born.
            Last fall I was invited to join the planning team. When I arrived at St. Pat’s, Rev. Glenda and Monsignor Jim were there with one other person. “Maybe this is all that will come,” said  Jim ruefully.
            People continued to drift in. I watched in amazement as more and more people arrived. In the end we had twenty volunteers and the air was electric.
            Over the months this large team has worked together with ‘Holy Manners’. Task after task was picked up and completed with give-and-take and lots of laughter. The vision took shape: to commemorate the Reformation and look to a new and hopeful future.
            The climax of this planning will come early Thursday morning on September 21st.  An Indigenous elder will light the sacred fire to herald the opening of the two day event, ‘Rebel With A Cause’.
            In the corridors of Heaven, they will be shouting ‘Hallelujah’.

  1. Nord500North Planning Team for 500th Commemoration of the Reformation  |Sept.  5 |Sudbury

To:  Greater Sudbury Christian Church Members

From:  Monsignor Jim Hutton, and Dr. Christopher Duncan-Hales, and Lorie Lavallee

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

The tenth  meeting for people who are interested in planning for the 500th commemoration of the Reformation is on September 5/17   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 Joint Common Prayer service with inspiring music by our Mass Choir.    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 at 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.

Peace,

Nord500North is a 2 day Conference in commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation Movement. 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 hindered our common work and witness. Presenters will be inviting participants to ponder both the blessings and banes of reforming movements past and present.
  At 7:00pm on Thursday September 21st our Christian communities will gather for the Common Prayer celebration of our commitment to healing as we look to the future. All of Greater Sudbury not just those participating in the Conference will be invited to this Common Prayer celebration.

Prayer & Praise

  1.  Praise Report:  CRTC approves 6 more licenses for Kfm Christian Radio.  Nord500North Mass Choir Launched

Sault Ste. Marie, Spring Bay, Iroquois Falls, Englehart, New Liskeard, Sundridge to receive Kfm Christian Radio

The Nord500North Mass Choir, under the Direction of Brenda Cavallin, had an outstanding response and first rehearsal.


  1. Prayer Request:  Please pray for our Christian Clergy
…. Most of the people are highly concerned about the widespread silence and/or vagueness of the clergy in the face of the grave moral meltdown in our culture. At best, many pulpits are silent or replete with abstractions and generalities. At worst, some pulpits and clerical teaching contain outright errors or ambiguities that (intentionally or not) mislead and confuse the faithful… Therefore, I ask all of the faithful to pray often for priests and bishops. In our human weakness, we clergy can stray from prayer. From there, the fiery zeal of God and the joy of the truth give way to the thinking of the world and to a lack of confidence in preaching without compromise. From the point of compromise, things just keep getting worse.




  1.  Prayer Request for Christians

July 1 is celebrated as Canada’sBirthday. Canadians should seek to be witnesses to Christ in Canada and the world, and to continue working to influence those in government to act from Christian principles and attitudes.

Christians realizing they do not have a lasting home here, should pray and work for justice and peace in Canada and throughout the world, so that all God’s people may share in the goods of the this earth. God’s kingdom will come only when all people are ready to let Christ’s teaching guide and rule their lives and actions.

Citizen Response

  1.  Sudbury Project Hope – Update from Jim Gordon, Chair

On October 26, 2015 - 13 parishioners answered Monsignor Jim Hutton’s call to respond to the refugee crisis in Syria. We have evolved to a nondenominational
group of 59 volunteers
.
Our first family – originally from Deirazzor, Syria – fled their homeland in 2012. This family – 2 parents, 5 children – arrived in Sudbury on June 30, 2016. Their sixth child was born on June 17, 2017

We are awaiting the arrival of 2 Christian families – a family of 3 ( 2 women and a young girl ) – originally from Aleppo, Syria, and a family of 4 from Homs, Syria.

Sudbury Project Hope is also assisting 2 local families in bringing 3 of their relatives from a refugee camp in Uganda –where they fled to escape the genocide in their homeland of Burundi

In our culture we expect the immediate – immediate answers, immediate action. We want everything right now. In the world of the refugee everything is slow. Very slow. The average stay in a refugee camp is 17 years. We wait. We pray. We hope. These people need your prayers. We ask that you continue to pray for them and the 65.3 million displaced persons and refugees who share our world.
They are our brothers and sisters.

  1. Ontario’s Bill 89 – Media Reports in USA and Interview with Dr. Jordan Peterson

  1. Students at an Ontario Catholic School Board will soon have more flexibility to opt out of religious courses and programs
Michelle McQuigge, The Canadian Press
Published Tuesday, June 13, 2017 1:49PM EDT
TORONTO -- Students at an Ontario Catholic school board will soon have more flexibility to opt out of religious courses and programs thanks to a human rights settlement that could have implications across the province.
A human rights complaint lodged against the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board by a former student has resulted in changes to the board's exemption policies and an agreement to encourage other boards to adopt a similar approach.
The complaint, filed by Claudia Sorgini in 2016, alleged the student was discriminated against when she sought an exemption from religious classes. The case was to go before the province's human rights tribunal but was privately settled late last month.
Sorgini's lawyer Paul Champ said the settlement represents a victory for students in Catholic schools across Ontario.
"We're hopeful that it will send a message to all Catholic school boards across the province that pressure to attend religious courses or activities is discrimination in publicly funded schools," he said.

  1. Pediatricians group counters attacks for rejecting transgender ideology
By Michelle Cretella

June 7, 2017 (ACPeds) — The American College of Pediatricians is a professional organization confident in the science we present and in the traditional ethics we uphold. In the past, we have typically directed critics to the relevant content on our website. On May 8, 2017, however, Psychology Today published a piece by Mr. Jack Turban that is not only libelous, but also denies the fact that untold numbers of American children are being experimented upon, and many of them permanently sterilized, under the guise of treating a largely transient disorder known as Gender Dysphoria of Childhood. This warrants a more public response.

  1.  Sudbury Artist, Patricia Watson, Offers her Canada Day Song that thanks God for His blessings on YouTube, free
Patricia Watson is a Sudbury resident who was a student at Sheridan Tech (now Sudbury Secondary School) when I was teaching there in the late 60s and early 70s.      A few of her contemporaries and I went to hear her at Peddlar’s Pub last Thursday night.
Patricia and I reconnected during the REAL Life Film Festival a number of years ago, organized by Lina Madore of Porte des Eaux.   She is a strong Christian.
Today on FB Patricia asked how she could get this song onto Christian radio.           I gave her your email address, so you may hear from her.
It’s a wonderful song and I hope that it enhances The K’s Canada Day/Canadian artist repertoire.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3pjbKImtGY

Published on Jun 28, 2011
http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/free... $0.99 itunes to purchase FREE (A Patriotic Song for Canada) Patricia Watson asked herself why she was so grateful to be born in Canada. It was 'freedom' ... Freedom, to be a single mother who could be an artist .... Free to Be who she was created to Be" and realized that all her friends and loved ones were "free to be who they were created to be". And so, this wonderful song was inspired.
Patricia had written anthems before: World Wildlife Fund's 25th Anniversary song as well as the International Earth Day song, were among a few. Now, to write this anthem was easy as it was so obviously meaningful to her.
The wonderful NY producer/ performer, Ed Terry, who had been lead in Patricia's rock musical, "SOULMATES", and had worked with everyone from Madonna to David Bowie, Duran Duran, Grace Jones, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston (to name a few) produced & engineered the work and then Michael Plante, a young new Toronto producer/engineer, who worked with Fantasia and Drake, recorded vocals & added a few modern effects.
Another note: Patricia thanks God for Blessings us with Canada, Freedom and the beauty here, and requests that we help her 'sing' God back into Canada. Her version of FREE (Patriotic song for America) is also viewable on itunes.

  1. REFUGEES   by Brian Bilston           Thought-provoking poem
They have no need of our help
So do not tell me
These haggard faces could belong to you or me
Should life have dealt a different hand
We need to see them for who they really are
Chancers and scroungers
Layabouts and loungers
With bombs up their sleeves
Cut-throats and thieves
They are not
Welcome here
We should make them
Go back to where they came from
They cannot
Share our food
Share our homes
Share our countries
Instead let us
Build a wall to keep them out
It is not okay to say
These are people just like us
A place should only belong to those who are born there
Do not be so stupid to think that
The world can be looked at another way
(now read from bottom to top)

Our Lives

On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."
The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"
And God saw it was good.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."
The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"
And God, again saw it was good.
On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"
And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."
But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.

Words of Wisdom
Wild Pigs

One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter.
The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting Communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist regime.

In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.

He asked: "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

The young man said that it was no joke. "You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.
When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America & Canada. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

One should always remember two truths:

There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

If you see that all of this wonderful government "help" is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America & Canada, you might want to share this with your friends.

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably not share this.

BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Think about this
Quote for today: "The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living."



What Jesus has to say about my future with Him


The Book of John in our Holy Bible records the words that speak specifically to our future with Jesus.

I have often felt uncertainty about my faith and the future promises of Jesus.

May these Bible references be fun for you to read, and grant you certainty about your future with Jesus:  

John 1:12

John 3: 14-15

John 3: 16

John 3:  36

John 5:  24

John 6:  27-29

John 6:  40

John 6:  47; 48-51

John 6:  54-58

John 10:  27-28
