In June 2012, David Ravenhill spoke powerfully at the conference in Montreal, arranged by St. Timothy’s, Pointe-Claire. He continues to speak out through The Anvil.
When he came to Montreal, he changed what he was to speak on to speaking about prayer and that through prayer we can pull down strongholds.
He says there are three very important things that we need to know about prayer: God’s love for us, God’s power towards us and God’s presence with us. Without one of those aspects, prayer is like a 3-legged stool. Remove one leg and it cannot stand.
From September 2014 to April 2015, our diocesan, Bishop Charlie Masters, travelled from coast to coast sharing his vision and priorities for ANiC. You can see his schedule of meetings hereand photos from some of those meeting – especially the children’s sessions – here.
Bishop Charlie is challenging ANiC congregations to focus on these five priorities in their ministries. We are praying that God will make these priorities transformational realities in the life of every ANiC congregation.
Have a listen to Pastor Tony’s sermon on Isaiah 53, Psalm 91 and Mark 10 from October 21, 2012. Scripture passages referred to can be found below.
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
