I

became a Christfollower in the 70s. It was the age of protest, the era of idealism, the time to take a stand. A poster popular among believers back in the day was called ‘Jesus Christ: Liberator’, and, when I asked Christ to be my Saviour and Lord, that’s what I signed up for. Change me, Jesus, so I can become part of your revolution to change the world! I understood that one purpose of personal renovation was social transformation. I saw it (though from a distance) in communities like Chicago’s Jesus People USA, the Mercy Ships, and Youth with a Mission. I read about it in the Bible. I even thought it would be a great tool for evangelism. But somehow, in the shell game of contemporary church life, it was easy to forget that justice meant more than ‘just us.’ It has taken 30 years for me to awaken from that bit of amnesia. 4

Network | April 2013 | calvarycambridge.com

But awakenings are infectious. Once you see the truth it’s hard to unsee it. And truth once seen must be shared! This month’s issue of Network is dedicated to Calvary’s Inspire Justice conference, April 12-13. Tim Meisenheimer, director of Ottawa’s Capital City Mission, and Kevin Rogers, Pastor of Windsor’s New Song Church, both workshop presenters at the conference offer articles on the theme.

Choose to walk through the Bible in one or two years. The two year cycle takes you through the New Testament and Psalms twice.

10 days or 240 hours or 14,400 minutes that is how long 3 students, 3 young adults and 2 leaders spent in Costa Rica on a Missions Trip. This year’s trip saw ups and downs, life change and several emotional moments. For four days and three nights we were living on 2 different native reserves, and when I say native reserve, it was like what you read about in history class. One village had minimal electricity and the only running water was a pipeline from the mountain. We spent several hours in transportation getting to these remote locations, but we also were able to serve the natives, by building and teaching. We spent one afternoon finishing the paint in the church that we started last year, and another full day building a NEW church building. In the evenings we led three different church services and were able to give away various supplies to the people there. After we left the reserves the remainder of the

trip seemed to fly by. We spent time advertising for the church, leading a kids outreach service and feeding the homeless food. At the kids outreach we had the opportunity to pray with the kids, teach them the gospel through stories and puppets as well as play games and paint faces.

Street Level: Ministry Beyond Romance

S

ometimes when we get the call to justice issues, we are moved by the “I have a dream” moments. We’re enchanted by the magic of the mountain peak moments. In what follows Tim Meisenheimer, the founder and director of Ottawa’s Capital City Mission, and a workshop leader at this month’s Inspire Justice conference, offers a street level perspective of day in, day out work that incarnates Christ’s presence where it’s most needed. What is it that we do here? Attack loneliness. Prepare people to die right. Call people to ministry in poverty cultures. When most people are asked about the greatest need of those who live in poverty, the answers are predictable: food, shelter, employment, addiction, mental health. These are all good answers. Often these needs are symptoms of a much bigger need--one that is much more difficult to be meet. Loneliness is the greatest need we see each day. • Food: Eating alone every day fills a stomach but not a heart. • Shelter: A roof overhead may meet the need of houselessness, but not homelessness. Without attachment, family, friendship, or care, hearts can feel abandoned. • Employment: A job helps with getting stuff and providing necessities, but not if you have no goals and no one to share them with.

• Addictions: Habits, hurts and hang- ups multiply co-dependencies. Eventually they become an entire identity. Beating addictions may seem a big enough hurdle, but without community, addictions only lead to isolation and avoidance of healthy relationships. • Mental health: Probably the greatest of the growing needs we see in the inner city of the nation’s capital. Friendship and support in the midst of emotional ups and downs is a real source of hope. Attacking loneliness is our biggest work. Calling people by name, caring about what’s going on with their feelings, listening to what they aren’t saying and to what they are. For the past 13 years we have opened the door, said, “Good morning!” to good friends, and made new friends with strangers every day! This happens between 300 and 700 times a week. And we keep trying to make it personal.

much younger than the world around us. We prepare people to die by opening up conversation at a table in the drop-in; day after day we tell them that God accepts them. People open up. We practice this rule: we will answer questions when you’re ready to ask them. In this ministry the message that resonates is the story of the last one to come into the vineyard getting the same reward as the one that has been faithful all along; that God loves everyone: Billy Graham, Billy the Kid, and Billy the broken. There is no Us and Them. It ain’t pretty. It ain’t romantic. But once you see Jesus among “the least of these,” it is beautiful!

In a ministry like this there are no baby dedications. And very few weddings (2 in 13 years!). What we do here is simple... We prepare people to die right ! We share one central message, “God loves you”. You’re fearfully and wonderfully made. We do it with words occasionally, with actions daily. We do memorials often and funerals seldom. So many people have no one to remember their lives and point to the wonder and greatness of that individual. Our community needs to grieve together. Often suicides cause many fears to surface. The average age of death in our culture is

The Back Door: Marshall McLuhan’s Faith

T

he medium is the message—who said that?

Marshall McLuhan has been called ‘the high priest of pop culture’.i He is considered to be the first father and leading prophet of the electronic age. He was a philosopher of communication theory at the University of Toronto. He also coined the phrase ‘global village’ and predicted the development of the worldwide web.

Marshall McLuhan: By the way, converts come in through the back door of the church. Coming in through the back door is coming in through the effects of the church, and not through its teachings. When you come in the front door you have first to swallow all the doctrines and all the teachings, which is what happens to the kids you see in school… I had no religious yearnings or needs of any sort but I was quite aware of the claims of the church

and he will answer. And I was absolutely moved because it was so uncharacteristic and it came from such a deep place in him. In his journey to conversion, McLuhan talked about converts coming in through the back door of the church. The effect of the church gives convincing reasons to enter. We are often focused on the ‘front door’ of correct teaching and appropriate protocols for entry. But it’s the back door, the beauty of the church living out the gospel of liberation that attracts people. We would do well to realize that the church serving community needs becomes a medium for the message. It’s when the church recognizes its role as servant, when God’s words of grace and mercy become flesh in the urban core, in the neighbourhoods, in the schools, and community centres that church becomes God with skin on. What would Marshall McLuhan think about the weary world’s cry for justice, and the church’s response? Are we opening a large enough back door in the 21st century that people can find Jesus through the “effects” of our churches? i pp. 53-74, in The Essential McLuhan, Eric McLuhan and Frank Zingrone (ed.), (New York: Basic Books, 1995), pp.23369.

8

A Canadian born in 1911, McLuhan became a Christian through the influence of G.K. Chesterton in 1937. He wrote his monumental work, one of twelve books and hundreds of articles, Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, in 1964. The subject that would occupy most of McLuhan’s career was the task of understanding the effects of technology as it related to popular culture, and how this in turn affected human beings and their relations with one another in communities.

and I wanted to know what the claims were about. I became aware that the church had had an enormous effect in shaping Western man. I became aware of what the church claimed to be.

He passed away in 1980. In a 1976 interview with an Anglo-French journalist Nina Sutton, Marshall McLuhan described his journey to faith.

Nina Sutton: So for about an hour, without admitting to it, he tried to convince me to knock on God’s door… all you have to do Nina is knock

Network | April 2013 | calvarycambridge.com

Now I had no religious belief at that time at all. I was an agnostic. But I finally decided that if the church is what it says it is, you are also told how to test that hypothesis and you are told to knock and knock and knock and demand to be shown. …that, if it is what it says it is, it also says that you will be given the means of knowing.

A Home for the Homeless

T

his past month, we became first-time home-owners in Canada! What a journey! It was only four and a half years ago that we found ourselves in this city of Cambridge, Ontario. We were fresh new immigrants driving around with our suitcases in the trunk of our car, unaware of where we would settle. Without any friends or family in Canada to turn to. Without even knowing where we were to stay that very night. It only took a visit to the home of a friend of my aunt’s who directed us towards the Bridges Shelter, for us to begin to see God’s plans for us in this city. I never want to forget how thankful and humbled we felt during this time.

to purchase winter boots. This was our first taste of this city and our first contact with the church that would later be our home church. What an impression this made on us! We were taken aback by the immediate welcoming, help, support, and hospitality of the people of Cambridge and Calvary church during our arrival to this city and all throughout the years to follow, as we embarked on an immigration process of denials, appeals and lastly a miracle from God…victory on our case. Our first night in our new home, we couldn’t help but look back and see how God led us and blessed us each step of the way. He used people in this church and community to show

you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-36 (NLT) His words remind me of why we went through this journey. His blessings aren’t meant to be hoarded and hidden, but are meant to be shared and to be turned into blessings for others. Someone was being Jesus to us when we needed it most. We ought to be Jesus to others too. So as we thank God for our new life as home owners, we also thank Him for what we learned through the process and service of this community, and pray that we too can bless others in the same way we were blessed by others.

Someone was being Jesus to us when we needed it most. We ought to be Jesus to others too. We were provided with a tiny room with a private bathroom, a small living room area, a T.V., and a small fridge. We were given a $4/day allowance and had to be back by 5pm for our free dinner at the shelter. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays we headed to a close by Anglican Church for a free lunch, also known as a community table. Our family, along with other families also staying at the shelter, were guided to the local food bank to browse through gently used winter jackets to gear ourselves up for our first Canadian winter. And we were also directed towards Calvary Pentecostal Church, who provided money gifts for the families at the shelter that needed

His care, love and provision over our lives. That night we felt thankful and humbled, just like we did during those days we were classified as “homeless”.  As we look back, we are filled with a sense of responsibility for these blessings. Just as people were there to feed us when we were hungry, to pray along side us when hardships struck, to rejoice with us when God moved, we feel the same responsibility is bestowed on us for others. Jesus› very own words resound in my mind:
