It's Not A Done Deal Yet

It's not a done deal yet but the opportunity to act will soon be over!

Our religious freedom will be in uncharted territory if parliament succeeds in redefining marriage to include same-sex couples! The gay lobby is working hard to achieve their goals, and it is necessary for Christians to act. Experts are concerned. See Janet Epp Buckingham's weblog below (see Raise Your Voice on Marriage), and find out how YOU can make a difference!

Christians are taking action in tsunami relief efforts (see Christian Agencies Bring Relief to Tsunami Victims). Geoff Tunnicliffe, director of Global Initiatives with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, is currently on location with relief organizations in Sri Lanka. See his posting on relief work among and through Christians in the stricken areas (see Update from Sri Lanka).

Nothing is impossible! Stories of God's goodness (see Happy Birthday Isaac) refresh us and allow us to reflect on our walk with God (see Walking with God) and our relationship with others (see Put First Things First and Does the Christian Have a Responsibility to the Poor). For a look at how people of other faiths might perceive us, see Building Bridges.
