February 17th – A pastoral approach to holy sexuality

A Pastoral Approach to Holy Sexuality

 

In an ever-changing society, human sexuality has become a hot topic of our day, and pastors find it challenging to address issues like pornography, premarital cohabitation, marital infidelity, abortion, or the issue of same-sex marriage to name a few.   Wilna Van Beek will be our special guest at our next meeting of the Saskatoon Evangelical Minister’s Fellowship, where she will incorporate her own personal journey as a former lesbian, and share how she felt separated from God as she practiced and lived a homosexual life.  She will address several dilemmas that pastors and Christian leaders face, and present a much-needed fresh approach to dealing with homosexuality in the day we live in.

SEMF Christmas banquet highlights:)

Our 2014 SEMF Annual Christmas dinner was a blessed time to connect with other leaders and guests and to celebrate the reason for the season: “Jesus! The Gift that keeps on giving!” It’s always exciting visiting different churches and ministries around the city! There is nothing more beautiful than being welcomed in each others ‘Homes” as we work together in faith as “one”.Here are a few highlights from the luncheon as they say: “pictures share a thousand word”s:

Decadent desserts- At Christmas, there is a wee more effort put into the presentation of the meal- Thanks so much JP for the lovely buffet- give thanks to your crew!

Our Swedish Chef gives us the lowdown on what we were eating- such creative fun for a bunch of faith filled leaders who appreciate good food, fun and fellowship!  Thanks Rock of Ages Church for hosting our 2014 banquet! We love going to different churches each month to host our monthly fellowship gatherings… ROA and the fireside lounge was a great place for this year’s event:)

Beautiful food- amazing presentation! We have a bit more special service and ambiance for our Christmas banquet and this meal truly was enjoyed by all! (even with those who had the inner voices say “Eat your brussel spouts!”
