Front Seat

This cartoon reminds me of the LoveSong band’s delightful Front Seat/Back Seat song during the Jesus Movement 😉 (I was sitting in the back seat…)

The Amazing Grace/House of the Rising Sun connection ;)

Amazing Grace (2006) - IMDb

In the Jesus Movement Coffeehouses, we often sang John Newton’s 1779 Amazing Grace song to the tune of the House of the Rising Sun.;)
I have been unable to find the original tune for the world’s most famous and well-loved song “Amazing Grace”. The later ‘New Britain’ tune that we associate with Amazing Grace was linked by William Walker with the song in 1847, perhaps of Scottish and/or African origin.

Lifting Up Jesus in the Wilderness

Rev Dr Ed Hird preaching a Facebook Live message on March 11th from Numbers 17 “Lifting Up JESUS in the Desert”.

You can also access the sermon on YouTube.

Why does Jesus compare himself to a snake lifted up in the desert? In what way did Jesus who knew no sin become sin for us on the cross?

A Life Remembered: Billy Graham

You will enjoy this delightful new 30-minute video remembering Billy Graham’s life and impact.

This video weaves in excerpts of Billy’s life that many of us have never before seen.  My late mother Lorna gave her life to Christ at a 1985 Billy Graham Crusade in Vancouver, BC.

Having gone home to heaven before Billy did, I am sure that my mother, with countless others, would have been excited to welcome Billy into heaven.  Many of us have Billy Graham stories, perhaps of attending a crusade, or of a relative or friend that met the Lord Jesus through Billy Graham’s ministry.

Feel free to share your Billy Graham story in the comments section to this posting.  You are also encouraged to repost this video and help send it viral as it contains the life-changing gospel. I am trusting that many will enter the Kingdom or return to the Lord after watching this 30-minute presentation.  Do you know any friends, family, neighbours or co-workers who needs Christ and might benefit from watching this video?

Rev. Dr. Ed Hird, BSW, MDiv, DMin

“I’m afraid there’s been an accident…”

12bdf6ff-3021-4e73-bccd-bc919398d1a0-7068-0000031133e7b4d9Sandy Brown and her family have just moved to Spokane, Washington where her husband, Scott, is pastoring a new church. With a fresh start, Sandy is determined to devote more time to her four children. But, within weeks of settling in their new life, the Brown family is plunged into turmoil.

Sandy receives shocking news that her children aren’t safe, which brings back haunting memories of the trauma she experienced as a girl. Then, the unthinkable happens…

A brutal attack puts Sandy on the brink of losing everything she’s loved. Her faith in God and the family she cherishes are pushed to the ultimate limit.

Is healing possible when so many loved ones are hurt? Are miracles really possible through the power of prayer? Can life return to the way it was before?

Blue Sky reveals how a mother’s most basic instinct isn’t for survival… but for family.

If you’re a fan of Karen Kingsbury, then you’ll love Blue Sky. Get your copy today on paperback or  kindle.
