"Reality" another IMCO with Jonathan Chan
(Photo above from CTV News article. Link to article below)
What topped the news this past week? 2 notables.
One was the backlash the BC Government received after they tweeted from their account a "self-care Bingo" chart recommending "safe and affordable" self care for mental health. It didn't take long for a plethora of readers to quickly criticize the post as "inappropriate, condescending, insulting etc." Here's the link to one of the articles from Global News.
The other was (unfortunately) another anti-mask, anti-vaccine, anti-covid protocol rally in Downtown Vancouver. However, this time the rally invited 2 nurses and a doctor from Ontario to guest speak against the Covid restrictions. Here's one of many news articles for your reference from CTV News
One quote that stood out was from one of the former nurses who said this during the rally which encapsulates Jonathan's IMCO for this Wednesday:
"We create our own reality. We create our rules. We create our future,” she told the largely unmasked crowd, which was packed shoulder-to-shoulder."
Do we create our own reality? This Wednesday's LIVE IMCO Jonathan explores this question. Enjoy!

"Unstinking" another IMCO with Jonathan
So... There's been quite a bit of news about reputable Christian leaders falling from grace or just being a headline because of their association with various conspiracy theories. From the firing of former pastor of Hillsong, Carl Lentz, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene believing that forest fires are caused by lasers from spaceships, Paula White equating God with Trump, Franklin Graham telling his followers that there was election fraud and most recently, sexual abuses of the late Ravi Zacharias. How should a Christian make all of this? Jonathan provides his Christian opinion this Wednesday.

"Unstinking" Genesis 35-36 with Jonny Cage
We've been hearing and watching self proclaimed Christian evangelicals stinking up their Christian reputation. From Franklin Graham, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the firing of Carl Lentz from Hillsong Church and most recently, the late Ravi Zacharias' sexual abuse on women. However, even the everyday Christian cannot truthfully say that they did not stink up their Christian reputation in some way. So how do we "unstink" our Christian reputation? Jonathan continues his Genesis series with chapters 35-36 and explores 4 principles that we can use from Jacob on how we can unstink our Christian reputation. Enjoy!

When Jacob wrestled with God, it sure seemed like it and his new name also had "wrestling" in it. Dan Forest continues our Genesis series with chapters 32 and 34. Enjoy!

"Gambling?" another IMCO with Jonathan
Are you a stock investor like Jonathan? What topped the local news this week might've caught your eye. Prior to Covid, Gamestop was already suffering from slow sales due to online gaming and when Covid hit, that was almost the final proverbial nail to its coffin. So it was not surprising that some hedge fund managers thought it was a sure “bet” to short the stock. However, the tables turned on them when a chat group on reddit took it personally and started buying the stock boosting the price by almost 600% at one point. Hedge fund managers who went short lost 100% (and possibly more to this day) of their money. Obviously, news outlets went viral on this story. The case of David vs. Goliath, justice from the mob as per this news article from CTV News
However, this also brings up the age old question about the fine line between investing and gambling. In an interesting podcast from NEWS 1130 , senior business editor Mike Eppel said that investing in stocks IS gambling in his podcast below:
In this week’s live IMCO, Jonathan provides his Christian opinion on investing in stocks since he too invests in stocks. Is it gambling? Is it just another way of being good stewards? Or is it just another practical way to save for retirement and a rainy day?
