We are regularly asking God to develop in us the basic spiritual disciplines that are the foundations of a life in Christ and the maturing of a community of faith in the church.
We have introduced a number of denomination wide initiatives to deepen our faith together; the Listening Sessions, the William Carey Institute, Assemblies and Banff Pastor’s Conference, Missional Networks and a vast array of congregational and personal resources.
In September 2007, as previously announced, we will begin an audio-devotional with Faye Reynolds. Also, at that time, we will begin to list a simple scripture of the day as selected by Claudia Wakeman. Claudia is one of my associates in the Vancouver office who has an MDiv from Regent-Carey and has been active in many different roles in First Baptist Vancouver.
The third initiative will be a prayer request for the day. Lisa Shierman, who manages church resources and reception in our Calgary office, has created a daily prayer guide for office staff devotions for many months now… she will be sharing many of those requests with us so that we can pray for our wider CBWC family in all its many facets.
Thanks for your time.
