God With Us

GOD WITH US: Peace

How do you experience the Christmas season? Shopping Malls and retailers prepare for this season well in advance. No doubt you’ve begun to hear the sounds of familiar Christmas carols, seen decorations go up, and perhaps been invited to a party or two. If we’re honest, for many of us the Christmas season can touch on a range of emotions from delight to dread, expectation to exhaustion, and a sense of being overwhelmed to underwhelmed.

Whatever your experience, we want to invite you to join in our Christmas series as we explore the radical gift of Christmas – God With Us.

We’ll be following the traditional advent themes of hope, peace, joy, and love.

The Struggle is Real: Finding Joy in the Struggle

Life is full of ups and downs. In a moment we can go from appreciating the beauty and wonder of life, to seeing the reality of evil and injustice that seems to permeate our world. So what do you do when your situation or circumstance doesn’t make sense? Or when it seems like God is doing nothing?

The struggle is real.

Habakkuk, an ancient prophet, had a very similar experience in his time. Our next series joins Habakkuk on his journey and struggle with God that leads him out of disillusionment and despair towards genuine trust and hope in God. Join us over the next 6 weeks on Sundays in downtown Toronto at Innis College, 10:30am.
