A Wii Glimpse into the Future

Canadians will go to the polls Tuesday, October 14, 2008. Important issues are at stake in this federal election.

To help Canadian Christians identify the issues, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) has prepared an Election Kit that includes brief resources and ten fact sheets on current issues. It also suggests questions people can ask political candidates in their riding. The Globe & Mail commented briefly on the Kit saying the environment is one of the key issues.

But knowing the issues is one of the ways to prepare for the election. You can also pray for the election, for the candidates, and for the country. Not sure how to pray? The Ontario-based ministry Nation at Prayer has released guidelines on how to pray, what to pray and who to pray for. You can even register your intent to pray online at the Nation at Prayer website.

More on the EFC. The EFC’s Centre for Research on Canadian Evangelicalism recently interviewed Vancouver Sun columnist Douglas Todd about his views on Evangelicals in Canada for the Centre’s online publication, Church & Faith Trends. Todd is the recipient of more than 60 journalism awards for his coverage of faith-related subjects. The interview is featured on Canadian Christianity.

Stepping away from politics and Church issues, we take a lighter, but inspirational look at time. “Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow is an assumption, and this moment that we say we have, just passed.” Welcome to the “Middle Ages”, announces Phil Callaway. He offers insights on how we can know when we have reached that critical time in life, “middle age.” He quotes a friend: "How you spend your time is more important than how you spend your money.”

And from CRC pastor Jeff Klingenberg, a Wii glimpse into the future! Life is not meant to be all work, he says. God has made us wee children with a capacity for communion with Him also in play. That’s likely why Wii is so much fun.
