    • The Beauty of Easter

      April 13, 2022 By The TWR Canada Team
      Filed Under:

      From Palm Sunday to Good Friday to Easter morning, the Easter season is beautiful, especially to Christians. Yet when we take a closer look at the biblical account of Easter, it isn’t hard to see that there are many painful, devastating, and maybe even ugly moments in this story.

      In Matthew 26:36-46 and Luke 22:39-46, we witness Jesus...

      “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”  – Luke 1:32-33 (ESV)

      As we’re in the midst of the Christmas season, it’s a great time to...

    • Holy Week and the Upside-down Kingdom of God

      March 31, 2021 By the TWR Canada Team
      Filed Under:

      This week, as we remember our crucified, buried and risen Saviour, we are reminded that this is the very reason that we share the hope and good news of the gospel among the nations. As you reflect on the truth of this upside-down kingdom, it is our prayer that you would also be inclined to pray for those who have never heard about the truth of...

    • This is the day the Lord has made.

      Every once in a while, we ask some of our staff to share a thought or two with you. With no trips to go on, no new people to meet and not having the chance to be in the office together as a staff, there have not been too many opportunities for our staff to share with you. But today, Nicki Coles , our communications manager, shares a few thoughts...

    • Thankful for the Cross

      Filed Under:
      As Thanksgiving approaches, we want to take the time to acknowledge that this has been a difficult year for many. A global pandemic, economic instability and uncertainty about the future has left many of us feeling shaky and disoriented.

      Thanksgiving is typically a time of abundant celebration with family, friends and loved ones. How do we thank...
    • He Is Risen!

      Evangelism, Devotional
      “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” (Luke 24:5-6 ESV)

      He is not here, but has risen. What emotions does that one little phrase conjure up? Think about it – he has risen. If you are a follower of Jesus, perhaps joy, excitement, awe?
    • Lamenting Holy Saturday

      Filed Under:
      Prayer, Devotional
      As we approach Easter and remember the death and resurrection of Christ, let us consider the biblical practice of lament. Lament is the expression of grief and mourning and is practised by God’s people throughout the Bible in Lamentations, the Psalms, Job and many of the prophetic books of the Bible.

      As we are in a global pandemic, and as the celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ is fast approaching, we want to take a moment to pause and remember him. This week we’re going to look at an important but often overlooked aspect of the Christian faith.

      During this time of social distancing, of time off from work for many and...
