It’s Monday Again

Reconnect. Recharge. Renew! The plans in place for Summer@Beulah 2021 are impressive and extensive. Grab a hot beverage and take a few minutes to click on these links to drink in the details. Keep in mind, several activities will require preregistration per pandemic restrictions on a first-come, first-served basis.
Our hats are off to Tessa Symonds for providing leadership to Summer@Beulah programming. You can always reach her by email if you have any questions – Why not click on the email now and send her a note to thank her for the amazing preparation? You may also contact the Beulah Office @ 506.468.2286 to reach her or Karrilee on Mondays – Thursdays (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).
Normally we would celebrate several highlights at District Conference to honour churches that are leading the way in the expression of our core values. Our commitment to a global collective is primarily expressed through the many ways we connect through Global Partners and World Hope International Canada to serve alongside the International Wesleyan Church. CLICK HERE for the full report from Global Partners which also highlights that giving through Atlantic District churches supported 34 missionaries & 18 projects.

National Superintendent Steve Elliott, DS Eric Hallett and myself are always looking for ways The Wesleyan Church of Canada can be stronger together. Here’s a great opportunity that starts this week as Jason McCutcheon and Krista Shaver are going to be hosting a series of pastoral chats for Wesleyan pastors to talk about issues of mutual interest. The dual purpose is for practical learning from each other and for relationship enhancement between pastors.Here is the Zoom link:

The first one is on Tuesday, June 22nd (11:00 a.m. Atlantic Daylight Time) the topic of technology in ministry, specifically what churches have been learning about their on-line ministry. CLICK HERE for a a more detailed promo.

Ellen joins me in expressing our deepest condolences on behalf of the Atlantic District family to Don Ingersoll and the entire Ingersoll family on the early Thursday morning passing of his cherished wife, Janet. Don, you and Janet have been heroes in Kingdom leadership and deep-spirited friends for so many of us over the decades of your Kingdom influence. Our hearts are breaking for you and your family – thank you for sharing Janet with us all in the wonderful journey of life and love you have built together.
Please feel free to CLICK HERE and share condolences with the family on Don’s beautiful Facebook post above. Details regarding the celebration of Janet’s life are TBD and will be announced on Facebook as they are available.
Points to Ponder
  •  Character is destiny. (David French)
  • In ministry, your character will be tested more than your competency ever will be. (Carey Nieuwhof)
  • The great mystery of ministry is that while we ourselves are overwhelmed by our own weaknesses and limitations, we can still be so transparent that the Spirit of God, the divine counselor, can shine through us and bring light to others. (Henri Nouwen)

Good things happen around a campfire. Stories are told. Laughs are shared. Songs are sung. Achievements are celebrated. Hearts and hands are warmed. Relationships are deepened. Disappointments of yesterday are diminished. Hopes for tomorrow are brightened. Spirits are lifted!

With so many continued 2021 disruptions in the historic summer connection points for our district family, you are invited to join me and several others from the tribe around a virtual campfire on Sunday, July 18th @ 7:00 p.m. ADT. This event will also be available for post-livestream viewing.

  • Who is invited? Like most good campfires – anyone who wants to pull up a chair.
  • Who will be there? Tami & I along with several other pastors and lay leaders from around the district.
  • What will we be doing? Celebrating our good God with stories of HIs power at work during this pandemic and encouraging Kingdom leaders with how God is preparing the Atlantic District for the season ahead. This will be a mix of prerecorded and live segments and will be less than one hour (including the interactive pre/post conversations you will enjoy).
  • How can I show up? A link for this midsummer night’s livestream will be provided in the coming weeks in It’s Monday Again. Why not plan now to gather with a few others at your church or home in mid-July (as pandemic restrictions allow), and share in the circle of His presence with us?

What if COVID-19 is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
for leaders to think more strategically
about doing church?
