If you asked the average Believer if they believe the church is essential to Christian life, most if not all would say yes! They may point you to where scripture reminds us not to forsake the gathering of the saints, but why? Why do we need the church? On this week’s episode Andy sits down with new Christians Nathan and Juniper and asks the question, “Why the Church?”
In today’s society, the pursuit of happiness and fulfillment often hinges on crafting our sexual identity. But what happens when this promise falls short? Join us as we delve into Kyla’s transformative journey, challenging the contemporary narrative. Moving from a transgender identity to finding profound transformation through the gospel, her story illuminates the power of anchoring one’s identity in Jesus and His church.
Many people struggle to understand who God is, and this struggle often leads them to resent Him and His church. When we wear the label of Christian, we represent the God we serve, and we are responsible for representing Him well. In this week’s episode, Troy sits down with Melanie Beerda, one of AC’s newest adjunct speakers, for a conversation about the rekindling of faith and how we must fight to not let circumstance snuff out a true passion for Christ.
Homelessness is unfortunately all too common. We, however, may not see just how prevalent it is around us, especially among the youth. Their homelessness is sometimes hidden behind their dirty clothes that we too easily chuck up to laziness. One man who comes from a broken home saw the need and responded. Listen to Andy’s interview with Les Talvio, the founder and Executive Director of Cyrus Centre, to hear about how his own upbringing in a broken home opened his eyes to the needs of the homeless youth, and the kind of impact the Cyrus Centre is making.
Since the Supreme Court of Canada first opened the door to so-called MAiD (medical assistance in dying), the door has opened ever wider. It’s coming to the point where Canada is becoming extreme in her eagerness to offer death as an option to those who are suffering, tempered only by—at least, in theory—respect for the patient’s autonomy. In this week’s edition of the AC Podcast, Steve sat down with Mike Schouten, the Director of Advocacy for ARPA Canada, to put a human face to what can often be talked about in abstraction. Join us this week to hear from Mike how his family navigated the last days of a loved one and how this impacted their view on doctor-assisted death.
