Atlantic Connexion

The Atlantic Ministerial Tribe honours our sacred moments of life, love, and loss. And in these moments we lean in as a spiritual family to share in joy and sorrow. Over the past few days we have experienced all of these as we are partnered in ministry.

Congratulations to Evan & Heidi Oxner (Amherst) on the happy arrival yesterday morning of their third child – a warm welcome to Lillian Edith (9 lbs. 20 in.)! Mama and baby are doing well – Lily looks adorable :).

Ellen joins me in expressing sincere condolences on behalf of the Atlantic District for the loss of two cherished loved ones of our Ministerial family this past Thursday.

  • For Perry & Jean Ingersoll and Sheila McCrea-MacCallum on the passing of Jean & Sheila’s brother, Gordon Graham. We offer our loving support for Anne, his wife of 29 years, and also his brother Doug and family including his niece Maridel (Ryan) Farrell. CLICK HERE for his obituary with more detail regarding the funeral on Thursday afternoon and also for opportunity to post personal condolences.
  • Also, for Greg & Shera Hanson (Kings) on the passing of his father, Doug. We especially remember this family including the families of Doug’s other son, Jeff, and his daughter Patti Lynn as this loss comes just four months after their mother’s passing in the fall.

  • Skepticism about the He Gets Us campaign. Skepticism about the Asbury revival. I get it. I’m a naturally skeptical person myself. But maybe this is a “quick to listen, slow to speak” moment. God often moves in ways I’d never predict. Skepticism isn’t a fruit of the Spirit. (Ian Simkins)
  • Authenticity in and of itself doesn’t guarantee success. But a lack of authenticity guarantees failure. (Jamie Lee Kerma)
  • Have you any days of fasting and prayer? Storm the throne of grace and persevere therein, and mercy will come down. (John Wesley)
