Church at the Manor

The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again. 
Thanksgiving will pour out of the windows; laughter will spill through the doors.

    A Prayer of Desperation

    March 30, 2018

    Do you ever have a moment where you know that this wasn’t just coincidence?  On Sunday at Crossings, I spoke on three specific gifts that speak and then watched those gifts in action as we had a guest speaker come to share at the Manor.  Pastor Daniel who originally is from India came to speak and share his story how God led him...

    loving our Manor peeps!

    February 27, 2018

    “I just want to thank everyone for helping my girls to learn about God. They love all of you.” 

    It is always so encouraging to get "shout outs" like this on our facebook page.  We have two young girls who attend our services along with their grandmother and they absolutely love our team.  They love our team and...

    The word for 2018 is CONQUER!

    January 21, 2018
    Well we asked our Manor peeps to pray and listen to the Holy Spirit for a word for this new year.  Specifically we met with Tiara when she was dealing with her infection during her time at Guelph General.  Well, she didn't disappoint and she is an amazing testament to the work of God being made manifest in her life.  She is an...

    2018 Here We Come!

    December 28, 2017

    Prophets, Vision and Perspective!!

    We have been moving through the Bible at Church at the Manor as Jen has walked us through Isaiah and Jeremiah.  We continue our theme with God and the Prophets as we now look at Ezekiel.

    First of all I want to point out something quite interesting.

    Ezekiel was by the Kebar River and at this point we are 5...

    My visit with Larry!

    November 28, 2017

    Last Friday I had the opportunity to visit with some of the men who live at the Manor.  I take time often just to sit and listen to them talk about what they are dealing with and the chaos they live in thanks to others who live there.  Some just can’t wait to get out of that place and when you talk about how long they have lived...

    God, Sex and the Song of Songs!

    October 24, 2017

    How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride!
        How much more pleasing is your love than wine,
    and the fragrance of your perfume
        more than any spice!
    11  Your lips drop sweetness as the honeycomb, my bride;
        milk and honey are under your tongue.

     

    Your lips...

    Dealing with the Negative Space!

    September 28, 2017

    Have you ever been around someone who is a ‘downer’ or the resident critic?? This type of person is always quick to crush hope, breed negativity and always revert to laws like Murphy’s…’if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong.’  Sometimes it isn’t a person, but a runaway thought in our mind and...

    When Life Doesn't Make Sense

    August 30, 2017

    The story of Job in the Bible has always been a challenging one to fully understand.  At Church at the Manor, we have moved into the poetic books and it was a great exercise to have a group of our people to act the story out together.  We then had a very lively discussion on one of the most common objections to why people choose not to...

  • It is an interesting  discovery to find out that the Greek word most often translated “overcomer” stems  from the word ‘nike’ that means to carry off the victory!  We see the word overcomer often used in Revelation as a message to the church to endure, to fight the good fight so to speak, to not give in to...

    What have you had a rant about?

    June 30, 2017

    So Sharon wrote a post the other day about Value Village and it has gone #viral on Facebook.  She simply made the point that VV ‘s prices are often higher than retail stores.  Well apparently a lot of people agree as the post has over 25000 shares!

    Dear Value Village...do you realize that you are not a retail store? And do you...
