This video below pretty much says it all. Charles Woodrow is an evangelical doctor from the USA who left a comfortable life to serve those who could never repay him… kind of gospel-like, don’t you think? Please watch the video and give as the Lord has enabled you. But regardless of whether you can give or not, please don’t move on from this post without stopping to pray for him and for the hospital. Here is real and genuine need, and the gospel is the only thing that can give hope to this country.
I just wanted to pass along word to those of you (especially those outside the GTA) who haven’t been able to make it out to the Toronto Pastors Fellowship meetings. Our media library contains all the messages (as well as the papers, in pdf format) that have been delivered at our monthly gatherings. There are also messages there from past conferences. Everything is available to download for free.
There are great messages to download from
And many others!
In particular, I would like to highlight two messages that I think are particularly worth listening to, both preach by Pastor Carl Muller of Trinity Baptist Church in Burlington.
First is a message he preached at the 2007 Pastors Conference on the topic of ‘Balance in Ministry.’ This is an excellent admonition to pastors to maintain a close watch on their life and doctrine, and to keep a large perspective on all of life and ministry.
The second is the message he just preached at the past meeting of the Toronto Pastors Fellowship. It is called, ‘Pastor, Serve the Weak: Minister to the sick, elderly, and dying.‘ It is a phenomenal reminder to pastors that this part of our job is not a burden, but a blessing; it is an essential element of shepherding, and one that must not be neglected.
If you are a pastor, want to be a pastor, or know a pastor, these are great messages for you to hear. I recommend them all!
