Pulse Podcast 005: A Challenge to Pray

, , , ,

In this episode, we’re joined by Dave, the EFCC’s Prayer and Spiritual Life Catalyst. He’s introducing a new prayer initiative — Look Up Reach Out — which is connected to our broader Revitalize movement. (Check out our previous episode for more on that.)

Dave is offering each of us in the EFCC a challenge.

We are providing a card that you can use as a reminder of your commitment to pray as Dave has challenged. You can download it as a pdf (here), and we will be distributing printed versions all across the EFCC.

We are tweaking some other things too — for example, the monthly Prayer Calendar will feature Revitalize updates every month (if you haven’t yet, you can subscribe to it on this form — be sure to click on the Prayer Calendar box at the bottom).

We’re also talking about an introduction letter to churches,  social media efforts to share the stories of people embracing this commitment, and other ways of sharing where this emphasis has led.

Lots of ideas! But the intro provided in this video is a good place to start — Look Up Reach Out!

Pulse Podcast 004: Our One Thing (Revitalize)

Revitalize was officially launched at EFCC Conference 2016. Join the podcast crew as we share a little bit about what it is, and what it means to us as a movement.

Pulse Podcast 003: Unpacking Our Motto

, , , ,

In this episode we dig a little deeper than normal. One of the requests that led us into podcasting is to help our people get a better grip on some Evangelical Free Church core beliefs. This request has come from churches and our District Superintendents.

In this episode, we unpack our motto:
In essentials, unity. In non-essentials, charity. In all things, Jesus Christ.

This informs our ethos, which strongly influences how we choose to live out our faith as a community.

If you want to take a look at our Statement of Faith which contains the 10 articles we reference in this video, click here.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

 

 

Pulse Podcast 002: Why a Podcast Anyway?

, , , ,

This is episode 2. We’re still calling it a “somewhat regular production” though. Changing that tagline after two episodes just sounds like hubris!

In this Pulse podcast we’re talking about the Pulse podcast. This vehicle of publication is all new to us, but I think you can tell by the picture above, we’re having fun with it. We really hope we’re not the only ones…

We earnestly want the Pulse to be a conversation starter. You can interact with it on Facebook, Twitter or by e-mail (thepulse@efcc.ca). We want to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

The Pulse Returns to Video!

, , , ,

Some of you may remember our PulseTV experiment from a while back. I think this is a better, more viable format.

After so much planning, dreaming, trying and trying again, we have a real beginning! Welcome to the Pulse Podcast, Episode 001!

If you would like to comment on this, or ask questions, the easiest way is to probably to connect with us on Facebook or Twitter. And finally, if you’d prefer to listen than watch, you can find our audio-only version at SoundCloud.

Thanks for tuning in. We’re excited for the next one, which will be upon us very soon. (We’re aiming for every-second-week, but with all the travel that Home Office people do we’re calling this “somewhat regular”.)
