NPWC Observes Remembrance Day

Friday, November 11, 2022, is Remembrance Day. “Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, the workplace, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen.” On Remembrance Day Canadians honour those who have served, and those who have given their lives in the hope of freedom and a better tomorrow. North Park Worship Centre remembers those who have died serving this country, and those who continue to serve so that we might know freedom.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.”

Missionary Pilot Imprisoned in Mozambique

MAF’s Ryan Koher and two South African volunteers have been detained since November 4 on suspicion of helping Islamist insurgents in Cabo Delgado. An American missionary pilot has been detained for nearly a month in Mozambique on suspicion of supporting insurgents in the southern African nation. Ryan Koher, 31, serving with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) through its Mozambican partner Ambassador Aviation Ltd. (AAL), had been due to fly vitamins and other supplies to church-run orphanages in the Montepuez district in the troubled Cabo Delgado Province in the far north. But he was detained November 4 along with two South African volunteers… [...]

A Southern Baptist Pastor’s Plea: Please Listen

Why Johnny Hunt’s “restoration” convinces me we don’t have ears to hear. I have seen this before. As I watched four pastors (two of them belonging to the Southern Baptist Convention) declare former convention president Johnny Hunt restored to ministry—six months after he was put on leave when a third-party investigation found he was “credibly accused” of sexual assault—I realized I knew what I was seeing. I hadn’t watched this exact 14-minute video, of course, with four men offering assurances of repentance, but I had seen it. I’d seen it at the church where leaders gave their assurances that a… [...]

God Doesn’t Use the Elf on the Shelf Method

It’s not the threat of divine surveillance but the extension of divine love that changes our hearts. Around this time of year, some people argue about whether the baristas at their local coffee franchises should say “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas.” Others argue about whether their churches should hang Christmas wreaths before the end of Advent. Still others focus on more hotly debated points—such as whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie or whether Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is festive or annoying. All the while, we are leaving unattended a debate that might tell us… [...]

Evangelical Giving Goes Up, Despite Economic Woes

Report: Nonprofits saw a sizable increase in donations, while many megachurches struggled. Needs rose last year. But so did giving to evangelical ministries. The annual State of Giving report from the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) found giving to ministries increased more in 2021 than it had any year out of the last 10. Inflation and the pandemic both raised real concerns for ministry leaders trying to make ends meet, but evangelicals responded to the crises with generosity. The ECFA survey of about 1,800 members found they received more than $19 billion in donations in 2021. Adjusting for inflation,… [...]

Hark! It’s CT’s 2022 Christmas Music Playlist

Our festive favorites this year span from kids’ carols to heavy metal. It’s that time of year again—I’ve removed the decomposing pumpkin from my front porch, my family has watched The Polar Express several times, and my kids ask to walk through the “forest” of lit Christmas trees when we’re shopping at Target or Home Depot. It’s time to build our Christmas 2022 playlists. This year brings new albums from prominent artists like Joss Stone, the Backstreet Boys, Michael W. Smith, and Switchfoot. After listening through the latest holiday releases, I’ve put together a list of seasonal tunes that spans… [...]

My heart was racing. I couldn’t catch my breath. My chest felt like an elephant was sitting on it. My arms were tingling and then numb. I couldn’t string two thoughts together nor could I stop them from racing from one topic to another. What was happening? I was having a panic attack—one of many that I would experience. For years I suffered from anxiety and depression. I hid these attacks from my family and friends until one day I couldn’t hide anymore. I was riding in a car with my best friend... [...]

“Can I call you Mom?” I never experienced the joy of having my own children. But one Christmas, I stared deep into the eyes of a young teenager I met at an orphanage in Russia as she asked this question. Her eyes pleaded with me to say, “Yes.” I had spent much of my adult life single with no children. I devoted my time to working in ministry and traveling overseas on mission trips, believing that motherhood would be something I would never experience. But God had other plans. The girl’s... [...]

For many years I admired C.S. Lewis, an author who changed my way of thinking in many areas. His conversion to Christianity was impressive; his analysis of pain and faith led me to deeply admire him. Even with everything I say about him, I assure you that I have not yet been able to imitate him. I do not necessarily want to be like him, and I am not interested in becoming a C.S. Lewis version 2.0. Why? Because I am only his admirer, not his disciple.  The word disciple comes from the Greek ... [...]

If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we're obviously lying through our teeth—we're not living what we claim. But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin (1 John 1:6-7 MSG). I am filled with a spirit of conviction and truth whenever I read this passage from 1 John. God is always present in my life, no matter... [...]

Serving on staff at The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) is an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. I get to connect with people from all walks of life, in multiple countries, and on many different levels. I create financial partnerships with our supporters and pray over a variety of topics—spanning from a mother’s prayer for the healing of her child who skinned their knee to a prayer of desperation for much more significant healing in a stage 4 cancer patient. Whether you’re calling the... [...]
