PRAYER PRACTICES

As part of Kim’s current sermon series, we practiced a kind of ancient prayer called “The Examen” (sometimes referred to as “Consolations and Desolations” at Cap. It is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern God’s direction for us.

GOD’S HEART FOR THE VULNERABLE with Randene Hardy
A few weeks ago, in keeping with our sermon series  “Jesus, Vulnerable Women and Religious Men”, Kim interviewed Randene Hardy, asking her to tell us about her extensive advocacy work in the area of human trafficking. We listened with rapt attention as Randene spoke with passion and conviction about the vulnerable women and even children affected by this crime, and as she shared some success stories.

Jake Penner’s Rocking Horses 

 

Jake Penner was one of CapChurch’s founding elders. Over 40 years ago Jake was part of a bible study group on the North Shore that invited others to join and soon became Capilano Christian Community Church. One thing that characterized Jake was a love of children which he carried into his professional life as a school principal. Jake was also an avid woodworker both of furniture and houses. In the life of CapChurch, Jake undertook to bless children and families by building rocking horses. He would welcome a family into his home for lunch and then surprise them and their little one with their very own personalized horse.
