  • Seeking God and Adapting

    One of the themes this past year of 2021 has been ďagility,Ē adapting to changes and unknowns. It seemed that 2020 was difficult because there were many questions about the pandemic.

Just hearing about these extreme conditions and issues raises anxiety, whether they directly affect us or not. read more

  • Together Again!

    Sunday October 3, 2021 marks an incredible milestone for Resonance Church. Not only was it our first in-person worship service since the pandemic lockdown of 2020, but this service also marks our first meeting at our new church location at Lansdowne Mall! It was an incredible sensation to greet real people and welcome them to church once again. Seeing peopleís faces, bumping elbows in greeting, marveling at how much taller all the children have grown, and sharing in the joy of gathering in the name of Jesus Christ filled my spiritual fuel tank to its maximum capacity! I didnít realize how much I had missed this aspect of our weekly church service during our pandemic suspension of live services. read more

    Despite significant changes to our lives during the pandemic, our spiritual journey did not stop during the COVID-19 crisis. Even though there were challenges, we persevered with the help of God.

  • Think About Such Things

    Watching the news nowadays can be so disheartening. Daily charts showing the pandemic's toll. Yet another gang shooting. Political conflicts and threats of escalation. Systemic patterns of discrimination. Ignorant, prejudiced "Karens" in our grocery stores. And the list goes on. And then we remember that as God's people, we have been called out of darkness into God's wonderful light. Called to live our lives here on earth different. Holy. Separate. As "sojourners and exiles." But what makes holy people holy? read more
