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.

From the very beginning, the existence of the House of Omeed has been a story of miracles.

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.

A Vanilla Life: 5 Questions to Consider as you Build Cross-Cultural Friendships

 

5 Questions to Consider as you Build Cross-Cultural Friendships.

Vanilla describes most of my childhood: Food was predictable, community was homogenous, and the exotic or unusual was reserved for travelogue shows on TV.

Vanilla was my ice cream flavor of choice. It was safe, predictable, and delicious. All those other flavors might not be as good…and risking ice cream disappointment seemed unimaginable to me.

Why Canada Needs Biblical Hospitality

Jesus demonstrated how one can balance the tension between pursuing holiness and being a friend of sinners, and he did it through hospitality. 


Better Together? When together is not always better…

Better Together? What about when it is harder, and messier to be together? What is it really going to take to be better together?


COVID-19 does not Discriminate. Neither should British Columbians.

A Canadian Christian response to Anti-Asian Racism. 

It is my hope that as churches strive to be missional communities, we would hear pastors address the topic of racism from the pulpit. Furthermore, could the Christian leaders of Vancouver and across Canada stand together to denounce this injustice publicly, calling on reform but also racial reconciliation? This is our time to show the world who are His disciples, by how we show love to another.
