Pulse Podcast 016: Prayer Retreat Recap

, , ,

This is a post that highlights EFCC Sunday — our annual reminder that we are a part of a larger family together — and shares some highlights from the recent Prayer Retreat. In addition to this clip, you’re welcome to share the Revitalize rack card as a reminder to pray for your neighbours. (Click here to see a preview.)

Contact us at Home Office if you want copies of this to share with your church!

In the full podcast, we get deeper into our memories and takeaways from the retreat. What we talked about as leaders is the beginning of a conversation that will be hosted at Conference 2018. It’s pretty significant to us.

Pulse Podcast 015: Volunteerism

, , ,

Do you think 20% of the people actually do 80% of the work? Our guest on this episode — author and speaker Ann Griffiths — isn’t convinced.

When everything we do is heavily dependent on volunteers, we really need to get our heads around what makes them tick, and what makes them stick.

Here is the preview/abbreviated version, which we invite you to share in your church, small group or wherever people are gathered:

And as usual, here is the audio-only version:

Pulse Podcast 014: Tearfund

, , ,

We at the EFCC have had a decades-long relationship with World Relief Canada. That continues on with their new name, Tearfund Canada. This name brings them into clear alignment with a massive global relief and development partnership. Tearfund has operations that span the globe, and intervenes directly when disasters hit.

Follow along as Neil and Brad get a taste (literally!) of what Tearfund is doing around the world.

 

Here is a handy shortened version that you could play in your church (or small group, etc.):

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:
