Selling Snails


Muslims are noted for their hospitality. They are gracious and friendly. But one thing they will not tolerate are snails. I mean I don't want to eat a snail, but this is anathema to Muslims. Now, if you are a Christian living in a Muslim country, they will treat you with hospitality. People will be friendly and try to help you if you have a difficulty. But you will be viewed as if you were a Snail Salesperson.

Opportunities & Threats for the Canadian Church: What's Next?

"What’s next?" is a big question. We may not know the next step, but do we know the right direction?

We will move ahead whether we are prepared or not. But what are we expecting? Is it only our wish to see the “old normal” resumed or is it to see God’s kingdom being “in operation” more explicitly? I would certainly like to see churches awakened to visualize God’s kingdom come, but in the midst of this I recognize there are both opportunities and threats.


7 Characteristics of Effective Witnesses

Some of the most effective witnesses I've seen have surprised me. They don't look like what I imagine. They aren't necessarily well-educated, or financially stable, or well-established in society.

I've had the opportunity to work alongside some very fruitful witnesses, those who have seen many people choose to follow Jesus Christ, as the Holy Spirit empowered their efforts. Here's some things I've learned from watching them...


House of Omeed

The House of Omeed (House of Hope) exists to inspire hope in the hearts of refugees and newcomers to Canada as they make the necessary huge adjustment to their lives now transplanted into a new, unfamiliar, and often incomprehensible society.

Given their track-record, it's not surprising, on a recent visit in the middle of Covid restrictions, to find that the staff and volunteers are as busy as ever. In fact, perhaps they’re busier than ever, as they tackle the needs of the community in a way that complies with public health directives.

Silver Linings

Moving a course with a global footprint and a 20+ year track record from a face-to-face delivery model to an online one would normally be a considered, careful experiment, filled with caution, evaluation and review.

Making the pivot in 2 months, with no safety net, has felt at times like jumping out of an airplane into one of those big, black clouds.

When you are tumbling through the storm there isn’t much time to evaluate. But a few months on, still facing ongoing challenges, here are some silver linings that are beginning to gleam ever more clearly.

Pivot: A Kairos Story

A story of momentum lost and momentum restored! The Kairos Course had huge momentum early in 2020. As the pandemic unfolded, the Simply Mobilizing team was forced to pause, pray, think and pivot.
