Immanuel Everyday: Seasonal Thoughts on Practicing the Presence of God EverydayImmanuel
"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel ... 'God with us' " (Matthew 1:23).

The holy wonder of the Incarnation is the good news of Christmas, but Immanuel is more than just the baby in the manger. It's more than a 2,000-year-old miracle. Immanuel means more than God being with us in some abstract theological way. Immanuel means God with us right here and now. If Jesus has really done this-brought us into the embrace of the Mighty God through the flesh and blood He shares with us-then it's a miracle we can live out any day, not just Christmas Day.

But how do we actually live it? How do we live with an awareness of God when we are awash in the messy churning of daily life, when we barely have a spare minute to ourselves, let alone a sweet hour of prayer?

I used to feel guilty when, as a new mom, I didn't have time for a lengthy, uninterrupted quiet time with God. I wanted it. I desperately needed it. But I couldn't seem to make it happen.Then I discovered an old book called  Practicing the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence, a 17 th-century dishwashing monk. He learned to recognize God as "intimately present with us" at every moment of the day. Slowly, this concept began to transform how I thought about my time with God. I began a new practice-call it a habit, if you will-of living my days along with Jesus. Of living with Immanuel, the One who wants to live with us.

"Pray for Rain" -- California Fires Still Raging
The Camp Fire, currently burning in Northern California, has officially become the deadliest in California history as 48 deaths have now been attributed to the fire, with more than 8,800 structures destroyed and 135,000 acres burned. Those structures now confirmed destroyed include First Assembly of God and Skyway AG in Paradise. There has been no further news about the Stirling City AG. 

It has been estimated that only 10 to 20 percent of Paradise survived the blaze, as schools, churches, homes, and businesses all succumbed to the fast-moving fire. Bret Allen, Northern California and Nevada district superintendent, reports the Skyway AG parsonage, home to Pastor Mike Thompson, was one of the few structures to survive.

(IPHC) Four Ways To Overcome Racial Barriers in Your Church

A few years ago I accompanied my wife and a few of our congregation's members to the women's conference sponsored by our local IPHC conference. The majority of the attendees were Caucasian women, with only a few Latinos and African-Americans. 

The leadership, music, worship and speakers were all white. We felt welcomed. There were no racial overtones, nor was there any hint of exclusivity. Yet we felt like invited guests rather than proprietary participants. Then a cultural metamorphosis was initiated that would transform the dynamics of the conference. 

My wife was invited to serve on the women's ministry board and was surprisingly elected to serve as the director. Over the years, the annual conference has evolved into a celebration of diversity, as women from various nations, races and culture come together to worship Jesus and fellowship with each other.  Read more.
(Foursquare) Holiday Devotional: He Sees Us HolidayDevo
Pastor Phil Manginelli
Even in moments in ministry when we feel isolated and alone, Pastor Phil Manginelli reminds us that God sees us and knows our hearts.

Jesus sees us.

It's a simple statement, but I can't tell you how many times I have spoken that to myself in quiet moments. Jesus isn't withholding. Jesus doesn't set me up to fail. Jesus isn't hiding.
Jesus is for me, not against me. And no matter what I'm walking through, Jesus sees me.

Ministry can be very isolating. Before you know it, even in the middle of good and victorious seasons, you can feel utterly alone, like there is a massive weight that you and you alone are carrying. If you're not careful, you accept these thoughts without much consideration, and soon enough they become the truth guiding your life.    Read more
(PAOC) Testimony: The Ottawa-Gatineau Tornado Blessing testimony
Woodvale's Pentecostal Story 
by Stacey Mackenzie

Pastor Mark Scarr had long been a strong believer in the power of influence, and the eternal impact it could have in a local church's surrounding community-beyond anything that happened inside of the church walls. As lead pastor of Woodvale Pentecostal Church in Nepean, Ontario, Mark had long pondered: "If we ever closed our doors, would anyone miss us?"

Mark soon got the answer to his question. He and his congregation were ready to respond when a tremendous challenge-and opportunity-presented itself right on their doorstep. His church had just finished a series on "Influence" when a sequence of powerful tornadoes hit the Ottawa-Gatineau region on September 21, 2018.  Read more
