We’re Live! (First Online Service)

Thank you for tuning in for our first online service at The Seed. Seeing our members tune in and chat online together warmed our hearts. Let’s continue to stay a community despite these uncertain times. Here is some behind the scenes. Please join us next Sunday at theseedmc.ca/livestream at 12:30 for Sunday Service!

175. Importance of Private Discipline

North Point Ministries have conducted focused research on how people grow in faith. As expected, they found that everyone grew in faith in so many different ways. But they found repeating categories of responses, so they have summarized and called them, “5P”: Private Discipline, Practical Teaching, Personal Ministry, Providential Relationship, and Pivotal Circumstances.

Professional athletes play for the playoff, awards, TV-rating, and, most importantly, for better contracts. For viewers, it might be just another game, but for players, their future is on the line. Because there are so many…
