Tim Haughton
Tim Haughton serves as Senior Pastor of Little Trinity in Toronto ON, and this week he will be sharing a series of Bible Teaching Segments. When you ask Tim why he became a minister, his short answer is “What a privilege to get front row seats to watching God at work”! Tim and his wife Laurie began their time with us at Little Trinity in March of 2013. They are parents to two boys Joshua and Kaleb who teach them richly of God’s love for us. Tim loves working with his hands, and so when he’s not carrying out his responsibilities as pastor you’ll find him in his garage or keeping up the repairs on their home. He is an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers, and pursues snowboarding in the winter, and golf and fishing in the summer. Tim graduated in 2001 from Wycliffe with an MDiv, which followed a BSc in Biochemistry / Chemistry from the University of Western Ontario . Most of his ministry time since graduation was spent working at St. Paul’s Bloor Street in Toronto first as youth pastor, and then as pastor of discipleship. Tim’s passion is walking with others the road of discipleship, pointing people toward the truths of the gospel which are transformative as the Spirit of God applies them to every aspect of our lives. http://littletrinity.org

Max Lucado
Throughout December, we will be sharing special Teaching Segments with Max Lucado which will cover topics from his recent book "Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name" Do you ever feel like Jesus couldn’t possibly know what you are going through? He’s the God of the universe after all! Does he really know your daily struggles? The good news is: he does. For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything you have ever felt. Weakness. Weariness. Sadness. Rejection. His feet got tired. And his head ached. He was tempted and his strength was tested. And you know why? Because in becoming human, Jesus made it possible for us to see God. His tears, God’s tears. His voice, God’s voice. Want to know what matters to God? Find out what matters to Jesus. Want to know what in the world God is doing? Ponder the words and life of Jesus. For more than three decades, pastor and bestselling author Max Lucado has shown us Jesus. In this capstone book, he takes us further on the journey to know the life and character of the Savior. This book describes both the person Jesus was on earth and how to live in a personal relationship with him and is divided into six sections: • Immanuel • Friend • Teacher • Miracle Worker • Lamb of God • Returning King By exploring Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as well as specific details like how he interacted with his friends and his enemies, what he did with time alone, how he acted at a party, this compilation from Max Lucado—now with original never-before-read content from Max—gives readers the chance to become more familiar with the man at the center of the greatest story ever told. Max writes “Don’t settle for a cursory glance or a superficial understanding. Look long into the heart of Christ and you’ll see it. Grace and life. Forgiveness of sin. The defeat of death. This is the hope he gives.” Jesus wants you to know him. As you read these pages, may the Hero of all history talk to you personally, and may you find in him the answer to your deepest needs. http://maxlucado.com

Earlier this year, Carolyn joined us to share about how the Nursing Home she oversees, Almonte Country Haven, was navigating the Covid-19 pandemic as they experienced a large outbreak at the home. We recently caught up with Carolyn and she shared with us how the residents, and staff, at the home will be cared for and remembered in some special ways this during this Christmas Season. It is a reminder to us to take time to pray for, and reach out to, those who are often overlooked at this time of year.

Marcel Knot
Marcel Knot’s recounts the story of his Jewish grandparents who were in hiding during WWII. His grandfather in a work camp escape and after the war, he and his grandmother raised 6 kids. Marcel’s father was oldest and he had borderline personality disorder. Marcel was one of 4 kids and he grew up in Holland. He describes himself as introverted, and he experienced abuse from his father. Marcel developed anxiety and depression and felt he wasn’t worth anything. Raised in the church, he questioned God Who, to him, seemed was never there for him. At 17, he had enough. He left a suicide note on the table and went to a train station ready to jump and end his life. As a train was approaching, he heard a clear voice that said “I love you”. He questioned it, and said ‘If that’s you, you better show yourself to me.’ He felt a force pushing him back from the platform and went home. This moment was life changing for Marcel and started his journey toward the future God had been preparing him for. You can hear the whole story here.
