So things are ramping up. You know how it is—work, friends, hobbies—it's the summer, sure, but you still gotta get things done. I've been watching my wife Karen, who is a vice-principal at a local elementary school (and she teaches too!) and although...

​James 5: 7-12​  Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen...

Enjoy the Our Daily Bread devotional thought

Daily Devotionals
  • Hope Anyway

    Among the hundreds of articles I’ve written for Our Daily Bread since 1988, a few stick in my mind. One such article is from the mid 1990s when I told of a time that our three girls were away at camp or on mission trips, so six-year-old Steve and I had some guy time.

    As we were enjoying an excursion to the airport, Steve turned to me and said, “It’s not as much fun without Melissa,” his eight-year-old sister and sidekick. Neither of us knew then how poignant those words would turn out to be. Life indeed has not been “as much fun” for the years since Mell died in a car accident as a teenager. The passage of time may dull the ache, but nothing takes the pain away completely. Time cannot heal that wound. But here’s something that can help: Listening to, meditating on, and savoring the solace promised by the God of all comfort.

    Listen: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail” (Lamentations 3:22).

    Meditate: “In the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling” (Psalm 27:5).

    Savor: “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life” (Psalm 119:50).

    Life can never be the same again when someone we love is gone. But God’s promises bring hope and comfort.

Traditional Lands Acknowledgement

community1

We acknowledge the traditional territories upon which we gather to worship. For many thousands of years, our Indigenous brothers and sisters have sought to walk gently on this land. They offered assistance to the first European travellers to this territory and shared their knowledge for survival in what was at times a harsh climate. We seek a new relationship with the Original Peoples of this land, one based in honour and deep respect.
