When I was a kid, my church supported a number of missionaries—people who heard the Holy Spirit’s call on their lives, left the culture they knew behind, and travelled to some far-off land to proclaim the gospel. 

In our foyer was a missions bulletin board, and at one p...

One of the last things Jesus said to his disciples is known as the Great Commission: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spir...

Like many males, I've often wondered what it would be like to be a super-spy like James Bond. He's so suave and, um, fit. He can get out of any situation he's in with a witty remark (even if the bad guy just expects him to die).

This Sunday is a very special day at Parkland because we're going to hold our second Family Sunday.

There are two important things you need to know about this Sunday.

Last week, I told you about Parkland's Canada Day Pancake Breakfast (and celebration of Canadian stereotypes), and we're excited about it! If you haven't told your friends about it yet, you should.

One of the worst feelings in the world is planning to meet up with someone at a particular Starbucks location, only to find that they were t...

This piece of news likely won't surprise you, but this weekend is Easter. It's the most important and best day of the entire year. Without this one weekend, none of the other weekends would make any sense at all.

It's also the day when people who don't usually go...

I’ll start today with a public service announcement: this weekend is the start of Daylight Saving Time, so don’t forget to set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed on Saturday so that you’re not an hour late for the service on Sunday.

I realize that most of y...

Last year around this time, I gave an impassioned defence of the church business meeting as we approached our Annual General Meeting. It was pretty convincing. Right? Uh, hello? Is this thing on...?

I like to think that I'm more than a one-trick pony. I...
