Posted onMarch 26, 2020|Comments Off on OBSERVATIONS FROM THE UNOBSERVANT
Most of you know that I am not the most observant person. It takes a lot for me to notice things, that is unless I have a camera in my hand. Give me a camera and I notice everything! I see things differently. I notice both fine detail and collective beauty. Maybe that’s why I love photography so much? When life becomes so blindingly distracting, I take great pleasure in seeing what other people walk by. I love seeing surprising vignettes of beauty, particularly when they are surrounded by ugliness.
Of course, there is nothing special about me. I think we all
have these two modes in our lives. There’s a lot we ignore, overlook, push
aside, and hide. And, there are some
things we become enamored of or fixated on. Some things we just can’t see and
some things we can’t not see. We filter life for the sake of the hope of self-preservation
or for the comfort of self-delusion or the pursuit of self-interest. We all do
it as a normal course of living, that is, until something shocks us and forces
us to reboot.
Sunday September 25th we will be having our third “Great Lakes Sunday”. Great Lakes College is an International Preparatory School with students from all over the world. The purpose of Great Lakes Sunday is to welcome our international students and invite them into our community and fellowship. As a local congregation made up of people from all over the world, we know what it feels like to move to Canada, so let’s give them a warm welcome and some warm food as well as we will be also having a potluck!
NOTE: OCC has been cancelled this year due to DC3’s facilities being no longer available as the venue.
This year’s Ontario Christian Conference promises to build on last years’ success with fantastic speakers, great workshops and lots of opportunity for fellowship and connecting. Click here to register online.

Remember when we used to travel? Presently most of us are dealing with nothing more unfamiliar than our backyard and our local grocery store. Our travel is restricted to the very familiar and we don’t need any help getting from point A to point B.
But back in the days of travel, we needed help. When physical maps gave way to Google Maps, the world opened up to us in so many wonderful ways!
No matter how unfamiliar we were with a location, the landmarks, a culture, or the written and spoken language, Google Maps gave us a sense of security. It allowed us to venture out and explore. It helped us to see the overall picture of how to get from point A to point B.
This Sunday Grant begins a new series of messages entitled “15 Essential Scripture Signposts” Think of this as a collection of red flags on a Google Map that tell us important things.
These 15 texts are waypoints to help us to see the overall journey of God’s Story throughout Scripture. With these 15 signposts we can see the direction we are headed. We can understand where we came from. More than that, we can use these posts as jumping-off points to some of the greatest landmarks and themes that run throughout Scripture. They will give you the confidence to explore more and go farther while still keeping our spiritual bearings.
We have now entered into in-person services on a limited bases (30% capacity). If you would like to join us in person, you can register online. As numbers are limited, please register early. If there is room still available you will receive a conformation e-mail.
Every Tuesday (other than the first Tuesday of the Month when we go to our community prayer walk) we get together to pray and study God’s Word.
We begin with prayer at 7:00 pm. A group of dedicated people lifts the ministries and concerns of the congregation and community to the Lord. If you have a concern you would like prayed for, or if you would like to be present to be prayed for, you can email Grant.
Then, at 8:00 pm, we have our Bible Study. This is a time of informal, relational study together. We have a lot of laughs and lots of serious discussions as we seek to understand and apply God’s Word to our lives.
SPOTligtht has gone virtual for now since we have been asked to suspend public meetings.
