"A Sign to Trust"
Dec. 18 
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Isaiah 7: 10-16, 1:18-25, Romans 1: 1-7
A mother's love for her child is deep. So deep that many a mother would not hesitate to sacrifice her life for that of her daughter or her son. 
Such was the love of God the Father for wayward human beings. He loved so much he was willing to see His Son sacrifices by sinful men for the sake of svaing sinful men. Jesus humbled himself from the moment he came into this world, to be born as a vulnerable baby, to the moment He died on the cross. How great is the love of God for us.
"The Road of Holiness and Joy"
Dec. 11 
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Isaiah 35
    Our scripture reading is in fact a poem that draws on the hopes of an exiled Israelite people to return to their land. It is also a picture and a promise for the future.
   The promise is to live in a land of plenty and the picture is that of a highway of holiness upon which God's people tread. Though set in the context of the past, its imagery offers a beautiful parallel to the life of a Christian believer in the present and future. "And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness." - Isaiah 35:8
"Indwelling Peace"
Dec. 4 
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Isaiah 11: 1-10
     In the Bible we may read numerous prophecies about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Sunday's reading, we can easily identify how the Spirit of the 
Lord is inseparable from the character of Jesus Christ. Indeed whenever God calls a person to the divine mission or a holy task, He endows His chosen candidate with the indwelling presence of His Holy Spirit. By the Spirit, six qualities that characterize the servant of the Lord become evident: wisdom, understanding, counsel, power, knowledge, and fear of the Lord. By the Holy Spirit, we have a revelation of who Jesus is, the comfort of knowing who is for us, and the honour of participating in His Holy work

"Hope is Personal"
Nov. 27th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Isaiah 2: 1-5; Psalm 25: 1-10
     What is Advent? Justin Holcomb, an Episcopal priest and professor writes this about the history of Advent: “The word “Advent” is derived 
from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming,” which is a translation of the Greek word parousia. Scholars believe that during the 4th and 5th centuries in Spain and Gaul, Advent was a season of preparation for the baptism of new Christians at the January feast of Epiphany, the celebration of God’s incarnation represented by the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:1), his baptism in the Jordan River by John the Baptist (John 1:29), and his first miracle at Cana (John 2:1). During this season of preparation, Christians would spend 40 days in penance, prayer, and fasting to prepare for this celebration; originally, there was little connection between Advent and Christmas.
     By the 6th century, however, Roman Christians had tied Advent to the coming of Christ. But the “coming” they had in mind was not Christ’s first coming in the manger in Bethlehem, but his second coming in the clouds as the judge of the world. It was not until the Middle Ages that the Advent season was explicitly linked to Christ’s first coming at Christmas.
"Does God Play Favorites"
Nov. 20th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: John15: 12-26
        Christians often hear the message that God loves everyone. And that is true because love is a part of God’s nature. But does that mean that God
never plays favourites? Does God favour some people over others? The answer may surprise you, and you’ll hear it if you listen closely to this message.
"Christian Faith as Vocation"
Nov. 13th
by Rev. David Fisher
GUEST: David Schrader
Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 1
     Elton Trueblood entitled one of his books "Your Other Vocation". His thesis is that your primary vocation is being a Christian. How you make your living is your other vocation.
   The apostle paul writes to the church at Thessalonica how he remembers with thankfulness their "work of faith" G.W. Demarest asks, "What would happen if we applied the 'work of faith' - faith as a primary vocation-to the areas of our lives that effect us most deeply?" This is the topic of this sermon.
"Minding our Minds"
Nov. 6th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2
     There are some things worth fighting for. Freedom, hope, and justice all come at a price. Men and women have fought and died to secure these for their  
loved ones. Christians know that Jesus died to purchase for us freedom from bondage, hope for the future, and to satisfy the just demands of a Holy God. Indeed, God was in Jesus Christ reconciling the world to Himself. As we remember the sacrifices made on our behalf, let us also remember that we pray to the God of peace without whom no peace will come to this earth.
  OCTOBER 
"How will it all End? (Part 2)"
Oct. 30th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 24: 3 + 35 to 25:13
     Christians from generation after generation have speculated that they would see the return of Jesus Christ in their time. In the centuries following Jesus 
death on the cross many followers of Jesus Christ waited intently for his coming. Historically many of the events that Jesus foretold, such as the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem have happened. Although significant prophecies have been fulfilled believers in Christ still await his second coming. There are several schools of thought about the return of Jesus Christ, with several questions such as, will Christians go through a period known as the great tribulation? What will happen after that period? This sermon will speak to these questions.
"How will it all End? (Part 1)"
Oct. 23rd
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 24: 1-36
     Christians from generation after generation have speculated that they would see the return of Jesus Christ in their time. Again and again their 
prognostications have proven wrong. It seems that too few people believed Jesus when he said, “but of the day and hour [of my second coming] no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” But what of the other predictions, the “signs” that Jesus spoke about? How or should we understand them as indicators of Christ’s return? This sermon will speak to this question
"Finishing Well"
Oct. 16th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Deuteronomy 31: 1-13
John Maxwell writes: “Deep down, all people would probably like to leave something behind that will live on after them… people are most likely to leave 
behind three kinds of things as they finish the most productive period of their lives.” Maxwell goes on to say that, people leave behind souvenirs, trophies and, for some, legacies. Moses knew that God would not allow him to enter into the Promised Land. So he prepared both himself and the nation he was leading. He was prepared to leave a legacy. As we consider our lives we might ask ourselves, “how might I finish well? Will I leave a legacy and if so what kind?” This message will address these questions.
"God's Presence, Key to our Understanding"
Oct. 9th
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 1 Chronicles 16: 1-36
Asaph, the author of Psalm 73, struggled to understand the prosperity of the wicked, a prosperity and an apparent life of ease which stood in stark 
contrast to his own experience of oppression.     He was about to give up even asking himself this: “Did I keep my heart pure for nothing? Did I keep myself innocent for no reason?” But when he entered into the sanctuary of God his perspective changed. As he connected to the Lord, he understood the end of the wicked. He experienced God affirmed his faith with these words: “yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.” (Ps. 73:23-24 NLT)
"In the Sanctuary"
Oct. 2nd
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Psalm 73
     This Sunday is World Wide Communion Sunday. World Wide Communion Sunday originated in the Presbyterian Church (USA). In 1936, for the first time, 
the first Sunday in October was celebrated in Presbyterian churches in the United States and overseas. Intended to reflect and inspire unity among Christians, it serves as a consistent reminder of our common faith in Jesus Christ and what he has done for us. This sermon is about how the Presence and Revelation of God changes the way we view outward circumstances. The way we see things changes how we feel, and what we focus our thoughts on. Please pray that God give you a fuller revelation of Himself and His love for you.
  SEPTEMBER 
"Why do Church"
Sept 25
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Hebrews 10: 23-25; 1 Corinthians 12:3 - 31
Why go to church? On the one hand, we read in the newspaper: “Times have rarely been worse for churches in Canada. As secularism skyrockets [...] 
Sunday attendance plummets.” An increasingly large number of Canadians opt out of church. So why do church? This message will answer that question.
"Founded on Good Authority"
Sept 18
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 7: 15-28
What is God’s agenda for our lives? The apostle Paul writes to his apprentice Timothy stating the following: “ I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. 
Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4   God’s desire for us to know His son Jesus and to live peaceful and godly lives praying for everyone. What does it mean to be a man or a woman of God? This sermon will answer this question.
"Making the Cut to Glorify God"
Sept 11
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Judges 7: 1-23
Jesus called twelve disciples who dropped everything to follow him. Not everyone Jesus encountered would follow him like that nor were they necessarily called to 
do so. The rich young ruler (Matthew 19:22) wouldn’t. Jesus healed and fed crowds of people, but they weren’t called like the twelve (Matthew 14:22). God chooses specific people at specific times to do specific tasks. What is God looking for? That is the subject of this sermon.
"The Faith of Rahab"
Sept 4
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: James 2: 14-26
     Don’t try to hold God’s hand; let Him hold yours. Let Him do the holding and you do the trusting. - H. W. Webb-Peploe
  AUGUST 
"Faith: The Bottom Line"
Aug 28
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Hebrew 11: 13 - 39
The idea is this: I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, but I know that God knows what tomorrow is going to bring. So if God promises that tomorrow
 will bring something, and if I trust God for tomorrow, I have faith in something I have not yet seen. That faith serves as evidence because its object is God. I know Him; He has a track record—He is infallible and never lies. God knows everything and is perfect in whatever He communicates. So if God tells me that something is going to happen tomorrow, I believe it even though I haven’t seen it yet. That’s not credulity or irrationality. On the contrary, it is irrational not to believe something that God says regarding some future event. What does God say regarding the future? He not only reveals to us events of tomorrow that we haven’t yet seen, He also reveals to us much about the supernatural realm that our eyes cannot penetrate. We cannot see angels at this time. We cannot see heaven. But God reveals to us the reality of these these things and by faith we see that they have substance because God is credible R.C. Sproul in "What is Faith"
"Investing for the Coming Kingdom"
Aug 21
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Luke 19: 11-27
Jesus before his final week of teaching and crucifixion told a parable to his disciples that still has relevance for today. 
He spoke to a nobleman who was to be appointed King. He gave his servants money and expected them to make a return on his investment. Not all did so. In retrospect, it is easy to interpret the identity of the nobleman as Jesus, and his servants as those whom he entrusts with gifts to do his work. This sermon will consider what it means to invest in the work of Jesus and what we can expect if we do.
"Stepping Out in Faith"
Aug 14
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 14: 22-36
God provides opportunities for us to get to know Him better by exercising our faith. Fear challenges our faith and inhibits us from acting by faith. 
It is an expression of doubt. Trust on the other hand says I will rest in the promises of God knowing that through Jesus Christ all things are possible. This sermon, through the example of the apostle Peter, speaks to the issue of faith and how, by exercising it properly we get to know God better.

"Reality, Faith and Living for God"
Aug 7
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Hebrews 11: 1 - 16

What is truth? The classic definition of truth is this: Truth is what corresponds to what really is. Truth corresponds to reality. 
In contemporary society there is a lot of confusion about truth or even about whether we can know the truth. Yet a faith that is not based on reality is simply self-deception; it is a delusion or fantasy. Genuine faith does not avoid truth but seeks after it. The faithful will seek after God, and God will reward them for their faith. This sermon will address the relationship between reality, truth and faith and their relevance for our lives.

                    Luke 20: 17 & 18
     Today we will welcome the Lord in prayer, and hear the Word of God and praise Him. As you enter into worship today, remember the words of the Psalmist who said: “Give thanks to the Lord,

"His Story Our Story"
July 10
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 2Luke 1: 1-5
   A story written is a story remembered. The story of Jesus was recorded in order to remember what he did, to ponder what it meant and to receive God’s invitation to know Him through Jesus.
     As you listen to this message, consider how God has been a part of your history and how He might want to bless and use you in the future.

"Lessons through Elisha on Growth"
June 26
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 2 Kings 2: 1-14
Canadian gold medalist and Olympic runner Donavon Bailey stated it simply: “Every kid needs a mentor, everybody needs a mentor.” What is true in sport, in 
leadership, in all aspects of life is true in our walk as Christians. In today’s scripture, we’ll hear about how Elijah passed off his “mantle” to his protege Elisha. Through this scriptural example, we’ll learn a key principle on how we can grow into mature disciples of Jesus Christ.

"Give it Up - Take it Up"
June 19
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 10: 32-42
     Today we will welcome the Lord in prayer, and hear the Word of God and praise Him. As you enter into worship today remember the words

Sermon
of the Psalmist who said:     “Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” Psalm 105:1       Consider praying: Lord, give me a heart of thankfulness, that I may be a blessing to you and others; give me your revelation that I would be able to grow in my understanding of you and give you praise, and give me a vision of who want me to become for I know that you are not finished with me yet. Amen.
"Good Promise - Good God"
June 12
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Genisis 6-9
Scripture Sentences: “But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of
the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing!” Rom. 13:11-12a The Message
"Discovering the Good Works"
June 5
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Matthew 5: 13-17
     When you commit yourself to the Kingdom, the King commits himself to you and you gain everything. That is why Jesus said not to be anxious 
about food and clothing or anything else. He is explaining that He did not create you or put all His resources in you so that you would strive and work and be anxious about what you are going to eat. He didn't create you to work all your life to make money for a living. He created you to promote the principles and lifestyle of Love. He created you to know Him and to learn that He is your life. And when you commit yourself to skiing the advancement of His Kingdom, the King will commit Himself to taking care of all your needs. - Sunday Adelaja in The Kingdom Driven Life, p.112

"Seeing the World through Jesus Eyes #5"
May 29
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: John 15: 9-27
"Conflict and Mission"  Jesus did not come into the world to condemn it but rather to bring salvation to it through himself (John 3:17). 
Yet before his death he prayed not for the world but for his disciples. Jesus said, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom you have given Me, for they are Yours.” - John 17:2. Today’s message shall consider the relationship between disciples of Jesus Christ and the world in which we live.

"Seeing the World through Jesus Eyes #4"
May 22
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Genisis 1: 26-28;  John10: 1-10
"It’s About Life!": Theologian J.I. Packer contends that the Biblical commandment, “Thou shall not murder” is based on the principle that human life is holy first 
because it is a gift from God and secondly because human beings are bearing the image of God. Packer writes: “Human life is thus the most precious and sacred thing in the world, and to end it, or direct its ending, is God’s prerogative alone. We honor God by respecting his image in each other, which means consistently preserving life and furthering each other’s welfare in all possible ways.” - Growing in Christ, p.258 Today’s message shall consider why Christian believers value life and how that value is being challenged in our culture today
"Seeing the World through Jesus Eyes #3"
May 15
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: John 18: 33-38a.  Acts 2: 22-24
Utopia or God’s Kingdom?: James E. Hamill answers the question, What does Pentecost mean? this way: What does Pentecost mean?
   To the Jews, an annual festival.To the world, a new dispensation (of grace, and the Holy Spirit in fulfillment of prophecy). To the Church, an impartation of power. To the individual believer, a glorious new life in the Spirit.  Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed? (Acts 19:2).
"Seeing the World through Jesus Eyes #2"
May 8
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Ephesians 3: 14-21
The Triune God: The Foundation for Truth and Love. What is truth? What is love? How can we know? People will invariably have variety of different answers to these questions. 
   For Christian believers both truth and love are embodied in the person of God our Heavenly Father and in Jesus Christ His son. The Bible, for its part, is not written as an exhaustive compendium of the world’s knowledge but rather as God’s revelation pointing to Himself who knows all. Today’s sermon will explore the basis for seeing the world through the eyes of Jesus.
"Seeing the World through Jesus Eyes #1"
May 1
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 2 Kings 6: 9-23
"Eyes to See God Work": For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit,
 the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace … .” - Romans 8:5-6
 “Do not move the ancient boundaries which your Fathers have set.” - Proverbs 22:28
APRIL
"Pressing Faith - Persistent Prayer"
April 24
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Luke 18: 1-8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY “A river cuts through rock not because of its power but because of its persistence.” Jesus told a parable encouraging 
believers to pray and in their praying to follow the example of a widow who persistently sought for herself. But why should we show such persistence in our prayer lives? Doesn’t God know what we need before we even ask? So why persist in asking? Today’s sermon will address these questions.
"Shrewd Stewardship"
April 17
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Luke 16: 1-15
     The message is simple. Jesus Christ taught that people who follow God should be generous and responsible with the resources that 
God has given them. What makes it complicated is the resistance we encounter in our hearts, and, to some extent, a lack of faith that God will provide for our needs. Yet with so many demands for our money, not everything we could give to we should give to. How do we tell the difference? In today’s gospel, reading Jesus speaks of a shrewd albeit “dishonest” manager and how we can learn from him.
"Revelation Chapter 5"
April 10
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Revelation 5 
   “All who consider themselves abandoned worshipers of God must ask themselves this question:  Is my passion for His presence measureable outside of the 
expression of worship? If not, changes must be made. Jesus did not do all He did so we would do nothing. Our love for God is measured by our love for people. The unseen realities in our lives (our love for God) must be measurable in the seen (our love for people). Our lives have the hope of eternal impact. Jesus made this possible, and probable.” Experience the Impossible by Bill Johnson Chapter 5 page 29

Scripture: tba
"Suffering Servant for Righteousness"
March 20
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Isaiah 50:  4-9a
On this Palm/Passion Sunday we remember that the Good News Jesus wants to share with us is that God is a God of life. 
The forces that work against life are all around us, to the point that if we are not resting in His power we risk being consumed by the darkness. Paradoxically the way to life is not to grasp it and keep it for ourselves, but to entrust our lives to God. That is what Jesus did. He went from the acclamation of the crowds, to the crucifixion and death to the glory of resurrection. He trusted His Father to set things aright. So he tells his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.”(Luke 9:23-24, ESV)
"A Grateful Offering in Troubled Times"
March 13
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: John12: 1-8 
The day before Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem he took the time to attend a banquet thrown in his honour by Martha and Mary, and Lazarus, 
whom he had raised from the dead. Out of gratefulness, Mary gave a sacrificial offering, which was prophetic in nature. She poured expensive oil on his feet and wiped them with her hair. Through contemporary eyes, the details of Mary’s offering may seem repulsive, but no one can doubt her heart. As we approach Palm Sunday let us listen for what we can learn from her offering, an offering given in troubling times.
"Being Christian Without Being Religious"
March 6
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Galatians 5: 1-26 
“One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization does not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.” ― A.W. Tozer
 “I want the presence of God Himself, or I don't want anything at all to do with religion... I want all that God has or I don't want any.” ― A.W. Tozer
FEBRUARY
"Fact or Fabel"
Feb 28
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: 2 Peter 1: 3-21 
     We will often defer to “experts” because we have been taught that they know more than us about any given topic. For the most part this is true.   
There are all kinds of experts: medical experts, accountants, pharmacists, plumbers, electricians, horticulturists and so forth. Yet even the knowledge of experts must be weighed against the reality of the facts. As new facts emerge old theories may be discarded. The foundation of the Christian faith is not “cleverly devised myths” but on fact. The apostle Peter makes this claim as an “eyewitness of [Jesus’] majesty.” This Sundays sermon will stress the importance of knowing the factual basis for our faith that we may feel secure in living as active disciples of Jesus Christ.
"One Thing"
Feb 21
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Psalm 27 
     People of character have always faced trials. We don’t often think of greatness as coming from anyone who has never had to overcome significant hardship or 
opposition. So why do we shutter whenever God brings these things our way?  Is it not an opportunity for God to work on our character? Sunday's scripture lesson illuminates the source of King David’s strength throughout his life and reign. To be sure it gives us a picture of his emotional struggles when confronted by his enemies, but, more significantly, it reveals his wise counsel as to how those struggles are overcome. Let us be wise, listen and learn how we too can overcome.
"Public Love"
Feb 14
by Rev. David MacKenzie

Scripture: Matthew 26: 57-66; John18:28-38
                     Matthew 27: 13-25
NOTE: Please welcome our guest speaker this Sunday. Rev. David Fisher is at the College of Prayer Ignite Conference gathering in Atlanta, Georgia, along with others from CFC and will be returning on Wednesday February the 17th.
"Thinking About Heaven"
Feb 7
by Rev. David Fisher

Scripture: Revelation 22: 1-6
     Christians often talk about living with God “in heaven” forever. But in fact the biblical teaching is richer than that: it tells us that there will be new heavens and a new earth
 -- an entirely renewed creation -- and we will live with God there.... There will also be a new kind of reunification of heaven and earth.... There will be a joining of heaven and earth in this new creation. - Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology
JANUARY
"Are you Preparing or Prepared"
Jan 31 by Rev. David Fisher
Scripture: Ephsians 4: 1-13
(Available soon on YouTube)
The Bible teaches that all Christians have been given spiritual gifts by the Holy Spirit. The Lord also appoints some to particular offices within the church. 
Both the charismata and the offices are the means through which God equips His followers to do what He has called us to do, and accomplish His will in our world. Do you know what your gifts and are you fulfilling what He has invited and commissioned you to do? This sermon is based on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and will touch on these issues.
"A Cast of Characters"
Jan 24 by Rev. David Fisher
Scripture: Colossians 4: 7-18
(Watch on YouTube)
     Sports teams, theatre troupes, and Christian Churches have this in common: they are all made up of many different types of people who play their roles to advance the objectives of the group they belong to. 
     Today’s sermon will examine the various people who made up the apostle Paul’s “ministry team”. Listen for the practical application for our corporate lives as we seek to live out the faith we have in Jesus Christ
"Prayer, Wisdom and the World"
Jan 17 by Rev. David Fisher
Scripture: Colossians 4: 2-6
(Watch on YouTube)
Prayer is more than simply asking God to meet our needs. It becomes more than “just a shopping trip of requests and pleas” when it is accompanied with gratitude. 
Prayer also plays a vital role in how Christians should relate to non-Christians. Today’s sermon will consider the role of prayer and wisdom as Christians relate to their non-Christian counterparts. 
"Relationships in Right Standing"
Jan 10 by Rev. David Fisher
Scripture: Colossians 3: 18-25 - 4:1
(Watch on YouTube)
In every society, there are roles that differ from one another. In today’s scripture lesson and today’s message, we will read and hear about how the Gospel of Jesus Christ is meant to impact Christian homes.  
Bill Witherington III puts it this way: “what Paul actually says is not an attempt to put women or slaves or even children in their place, but rather to make sure that they behave like Christians in the social roles they are already playing. There is no evidence of a feminist or slave revolution in play in the church at Colossae that Paul is trying to stifle. Quite the contrary, Paul is trying to Christianize a difficult and possibly abusive situation on his first occasion of addressing the Colossians and so to help the subordinate members of the household not merely survive but have a more Christian environment in which to operate.”
"Breakthrough With Worship"
Jan 3 by Rev. David Fisher
Scripture: Colossians 3: 1-17
(Watch on YouTube)
With the coming of the New Year, 2016, we put away the old and welcome, with anticipation, what may happen in the year to come. For Christian believers, ours is not a blind faith, but a faith that trusts the goodness of 
God to guide us through and in whatever circumstances we find ourselves. As such I would urge you to do what the bible says: "Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him" Isaiah 3:17
