FREE REGISTRATION for the Toronto Pastors Conference!!

We are just a few weeks away from the Toronto Pastors Conference and thought it might be fun to give away a free registration. This contest is open to everyone, even those already registered (we will reimburse you if you win).

All you need to do is send me an email (the[dot]kerux[at]gmail[dot]com) or leave a comment describing the strangest thing you have seen or heard in a church business meeting. (No names permitted and do your best to protect the "innocent.")

My best story is the one about the two deacons who decided to “take it outside” and finish their argument in blows on the front porch of the church! (This did not happen at Grace Fellowship Church!!)

Tell us your story and whichever one Julian and I think is best we will reward with a free registration to the TPC featuring Mark Dever and Matt Schmucker. You have until Sunday night!

Mine that Bird - The Remarkable Finish of the 2009 Kentucky Derby Winner

I don't bet on horse races by conviction. But I love a good race, and I love it when the underdog wins. To say that this year's Kentucky Derby was a good race with a dramatic finish is remarkable understatement.
I watched the race the day after and tried like crazy to find a way to use it as an illustration in my Sunday sermon... but it just did not fit anywhere.
So, here is the clip. It is worth watching to the end. What a story!

My Sister is Featured in the Toronto Star for Martin's Flowers | GTA | Flower shop still here a blooming century later!

Okay, I like to brag. My big sister is featured in today's Toronto Star in an article highlighting the 110 years of "our" family business. You can read all about the place I spent every Saturday and every Christmas and every Mother's Day and every Valentine's Day... etc.

That little shop on Dundas St W has been used of the Lord in some pretty remarkable ways over the years. Some day I think I will blog about that. For now, read about my sis!
