    "Broken and Beautiful Part 3" - Kristal Chalmers and Lloyd and Eileen Peters

    "Broken and Beautiful Part 3" - Kristal Chalmers and Lloyd and Eileen Peters

    This will be part 3 of our conversation with Kristal Chalmers and Lloyd and Eileen Peters about clergy sexual abuse. In this episode we will be addressing the church. Our role in protecting victims and how we ought to handle instances of abuse. very likely, many of our churches don't have protocols in place to handle instances like this so I hope this sparks some interaction and some preparation, so that we can learn to handle these cases much better. 
    remember there are resources for you personally and for your churches so please seek them out.

    "Broken and Beautiful" - Kristal Chalmers

    "Broken and Beautiful" - Kristal Chalmers

    This will be the first of 3 episodes dealing with clergy sexual abuse. In this episode Kristal Chalmers shares her story as it is recorded in her book "Broken and Beautiful". She recalls the "grooming" of a predatory pastor and the pain of walking through reporting it, its mishandling by those in authority and yet in the midst of it all God's care.
    Kristial's parent Lloyd and Eileen Peters will also provide their perspective as Eileen has served as an abuse counsellor for years previous and Lloyd has served as a Pastor. They will share their hearts for victims, secondary victims and for the church to handle this seriously and with much wisdom over the next 2 episodes.

    If you need help please feel free to reach out, and pray with me that the Lord would do his mighty work of shedding light on this darkness.

    Murray and Glenda shepherded the Humboldt Alliance Church from the time that I arrived in Humboldt. From the time of Murray's cancer diagnosis until his death 9 months ago, they undderwent a journey that shaped their family, their faith and their ministry. As you listen to Glenda tell about both the struggles and the immense blessings during these times I hope your heart is encouraged.

    Please pray for your pastors and ministry leaders, They often are serving in the midst of pain. If you are personally hurting please reach out and talk about it.

    "Thinking About Our Thinking" - Jorin Green

    "Thinking About Our Thinking" - Jorin Green

    How much of how and why we think the way we do has been influenced by ancient ways of thinking. Jorin Green was a professor at Millar College of the Bible for 17 years and has returned to the pastorate at Erindale Alliance Church in Saskatoon Sk.

    We had a fun time and our conversation that went a lot of different ways and probably left us with more questions that answers. But I hope what you will discover in the pursuit of truth is the depth and beauty of a relationship with Jesus.
