Ascend to Heaven by Clint Humfrey

In time for Easter, Clint Humfrey, pastor of Calvary Grace Church of Calgary, has posted a free e-book on the church’s website called Ascend to Heaven: Meditations for Gospel Wayfarers. I had the privilege of reading an advanced copy of it and gladly urge people to download, read, and pass on this delightful collection of meditations.

Based primarily on Clint’s thoughts on 1 John, other texts of Scriptures are also considered. In this encouraging booklet you’ll get a unique perspective on the gospel from one who has coupled his reflections with the mountainous scenery of Canmore, AB where he put his thoughts to paper. His words are rich with imagery drawn from the Canadian Rockies. Clint also offers some insightful critiques of contemporary culture and how our union with Christ sets Christians apart as people with a new and distinct identity.

Calgary Conference

Exciting news for those in Alberta. Calvary Grace Church in Calgary will be hosting their annual Calvary Grace Conference this January 29 and 30, 2010. Their guest speakers are Vishal Mangalwadi and Art Azurdia. Although I haven’t read or listened to anything by Azurdia, I am a big fan of Mangalwadi. His book on William Carey is excellent.
For more information about the conference check out the website.

Clint Humfrey on the Net

It seems my good friend Clint Humfrey, pastor of Calvary Grace Church in Calgary, AB is getting some blog coverage lately. His post on streams of Reformed Baptist renewal gained an interesting discussion at And Clint’s recent (and convicting) TBS chapel sermon on tent-making for ministry was nicely summarised and commented on at Redeeming the Time.

Having Clint, Christel and their new baby Hunter in Toronto last week was a true blessing. With Justin and Elisha Galotti (Justin is teaching NT in India as I type!) here last weekend, it was like old times with the six of us hanging out (w/John Bell too!).

Calgary Sun – Praying aloud gets man jailed

Licia Corbella of The Calgary Sun reports that street evangelist Artur Pawlawski was arrested in Calgary for praying in public. Are Christians over-reacting when we believe that persecution for our faith isn’t far away in Canada?
