Serving Up Summer Spirituality – The Thessalonian Twins (part 3)

This Sunday is the last day of the Wimbledon tennis championships.  It only seems fitting that Pastor Ken selects tennis as sports analogy for today’s message.  As he has done for the last two weeks, he continues to compare 1st and 2nd Thessalonians.  Today he compares 1 Thessalonians 4 and 2 Thessalonians 3.

The Thessalonian Twins (part 3)

Serving Up Summer Spirituality – The Thessalonian Twins (part 2)

Today Pastor Ken continues with his Summer look into Thessalonians.  This week he explores where Thessalonians 1 and 2 differ – in 1 Thessalonians chapters 2 and 3.  Still using his Summer Sports theme, he invites us into a mystical realm of Authenticity, Proven Strength, Proficiency, Skill and Success which all of us have the opportunity to do … not on the sports field, but in life.

‘YOU’ at the Great Physician’s Operating Table

Pastor Ken picks up his series on The Great Physician again this week.  Today he looks at God’s healing… of YOU.  Just what happens when you get into the examining room; when you get into the operating room?

The Examining Room

The Great Physician’s Waiting Room

While we all sit in the Great Physician’s waiting room, Pastor Ken asks us to ponder the following questions:

Do you, do I, does our church…

  • …have a health perspective on God’s healing?
  • …have a health practice in seeking healing?
  • …have a robust theology of the mystery of God’s will?
  • …have a robust theology of holistic healing?
  • … have a robust theology of the theology of suffering?

Today Pastor Ken explores these questions as we sit in the waiting room, waiting to be attended to by the Great Physician.

The Great Physician’s Nasty Medicine

This week, Pastor Ken examines the nasty medicine dispensed by the Great Physician.  It tastes bad, but it works!

What is your present pain and suffering? The one that you identify as the worst in your life.  In which category does it fit?

  • Judgement – condemnation:  damnation
  • Isolation – destruction:  brokenness
  • Illness – testing – struggle:  character
  • Injury – accident – results:  human condition
  • Irritation – annoyance:  contentment
  • Delusion – lies:  perspective

Are you presently focusing on the symptoms or the cure?

The Great Physician, aka the Heart Surgeon

Pastor Ken continues with his series on “The Great Physician”.  This week he looks at the Great Physician as the emotional healer; the heart surgeon.

During his message, Pastor Ken mentioned two books he is using as the framework for this series.  Below are links to these book on Amazon.ca

Verily, Verily, the Great Physician has … ARRIVED!

Pastor Ken continues his series on ‘The Great Physician’.  This week, the Great Physician has Arrived! Ken begins by examining Truth, Lies and the confusion and uncertainty we all deal with.  From there he looks at four sicknesses from which we all suffer, at times.  He concludes with the cure – from the Great Physician.  Listen to this week’s podcast for the remedy.

Extraordinary Eternal Easter: Palm Pedestals
