Pulse Podcast 013: Incarnation

, , , ,

Viewer warning: There are some bad attempts at word play in this. Sigh. We can’t control each other. Or ourselves, apparently.

We want our podcasts to be generally applicable whenever they’re watched, or listened to, so while this is inspired by the Christmas season, it isn’t totally Christmas-themed; Incarnation is relevant all through the year, but especially at Christmas, when we reflect on how it all began.

We have a preview version here, which we invite you to play in your worship service and encourage people to check out the longer one:

And finally, we have an audio-only version:

Pulse Podcast 012: Identity

, , , ,

As I’m sure you can guess, in our under-20-minute format, we barely scratched the surface of this episode’s topic: Identity. We just feel that it’s such an important issue to consider, we had to address it, even in this kind of incomplete way.

Hopefully, this can spark meaningful discussion in your circles of influence. If you want to process it with us, look for our post on Facebook and Twitter, and reply to us there.

And now for the teaser/preview version — we encourage you to play this in your church or small group to introduce the longer version:

And here is the audio-only version:

Pulse Podcast 011: World of Hope 2017-2018

, , ,

Christmas decorations are sharing shelf space with Halloween candy — it must be time to launch another World of Hope!

The video below is an invitation and description of what World of Hope is, and what we hope it will accomplish for the EFCCM and its projects.

We also offer a shorter preview version that we hope is useful to share with your church, your small group or wherever else time is precious.

World of Hope impact giving catalogues will be arriving in churches and mailboxes around Thanksgiving. We’re grateful for our generous supporters, and are excited to see what this year will bring.

Pulse Podcast 010: Delegating Authority

, , ,

You probably don’t know this, but Dan, our Leadership Catalyst, was the primary encourager behind the launch of the Pulse podcast. Without his energy and eagerness, we may not have had the momentum to turn the dream into a plan, or turn the plan into reality.

And now, here we are: Episode 10!

And we’re so glad that we were finally able to have Dan join us in front of the cameras.

We asked him to talk about delegating authority. Most of us are familiar with delegating responsibility. That is a task. But the more sophisticated the task, the more authority is required to pull it off.

In this edition, we begin to address the following questions:

  • So why delegate authority?
  • How?
  • To whom?
  • How much is too much? Or too little?

We hope you see this as the beginning of a conversation. If you’d like to take it further, get in touch with us.

We also offer a shorter preview version of this, which we hope you will use in your circles to invite people to take in the larger one:

Thanks for watching, and thanks for sharing!

Pulse Podcast 009: Canada Day Edition

150 Years!

Is it a birthday? Is it an anniversary? Whatever it is, we’re having a hard time remembering back that far for some reason.

It’s a good time to celebrate Canada, and share some of the things we appreciate about our country.
