BCMB 2013: overheard
You and I have got to get our gospel back.
It’s imbalanced to seek ‘manifestations’ of the Spirit. [The Spirit] is all about the gospel and Christ-like-ness. That should not scare us away from this foundational truth. Boldness comes when people humble themselves and pray, and the Holy Spirit comes.
God has blessed us. And we should make sure our resources are at his disposal.
Step out and take action and trust God to give us the courage. Courage will meet us when we take steps.
—Rob Thiessen (conference minister, BCMB)
Camp is for children who are near to us but far from God.
—Merv Boschman (director, Camps BC)
My prayer: Lord, all of my eggs are in one basket, and you are my basket.
—Judy Harms-Wiebe (concert of prayer leader)
What if we prayed and lived as if it all depended on God?
—Gord Fleming (national director, C2C network)
If God chooses to pull down all the trees in my camp, I will choose to be okay with that.
—Gene Krahn (director, Pines Bible Camp, devastated by a windstorm in 2012)
