Evo Morales flees crisis-torn Bolivia after deadly clashes | CBC News

We’ve been monitoring the political situation in Bolivia, which has escalated with the resignation and departure of President Evo Morales. More news on this is available here:
https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/bolivia-morales-1.5356095

The Government of Canada’s current travel advisory ("Avoid Non-Essential Travel") activates our Travel Advisory Policy, which means we are consulting with our missionaries to ensure that, in the event they feel their safety is threatened, they have evacuation plans in place already.

Please pray for calm, safety and stability to be restored in Bolivia.

cbc.ca Bolivia faced its worst unrest in decades amid a political vacuum Tuesday, while Evo Morales, who transformed the Andean nation as its first Indigenous president, fled the country following weeks of violent protests.

Amidst a meeting-heavy week, we recently had a leadership retreat where we opened up a conversation about the leadership structure of the whole EFCC.

Our latest podcast is a recap on that from Neil and Brad:

Toronto ‘church plant’ seeks to spread Christianity in unique, modern way

“You’ve got to take the message to where the people need it the most, and to where there’s nobody delivering it.”

For two days this week, many of our leaders attended the EFCC Prayer Retreat. What a delightfully humble, receptive spirit abounded there!

Here are some thoughts and reflections from the retreat:

We know the Spirit is at work in our lives when these fruit ripen: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

The spirit to honestly engage the issues of our day is refreshing. There is no shying away of the internal and external challenges we’re facing.

Unity and humility — isn’t it interesting how those always go together?

Preaching has been put on a pedestal; too often our heroes are great preachers. Pastors and church in general need to reprioritise shepherding and discipleship — not merely telling people the truth, but walking it out with them.

Apostle Paul states that life isn’t worth anything, unless it is invested in fulfilling what we’re called to.

We talk about witnessing, and we end up talking about someone else’s story. That’s not considered witnessing — witnessing is about your story. Be ready to share it, as you live it.

We can’t make any important changes without being able to absorb a certain amount of chaos.

The changes we’re talking about making here are not to toward something we haven’t been before, or to become something we aren't called to be now.

We're so excited to have Dan join us for this edition of the Pulse podcast.

How much is too little? Or too much?
Delegate to whom?

We made it to the double-digits! This time we're talking about delegating authority. It's a practical, relevant topic, wherever there are staff, leaders…

It's fun to see the EFCC family acting like a family -- sharing time, smiles and laughter, even as we wrestle with tricky, delicate and weighty issues.

Like this one:
We see gender through a lens, and our lenses work like different languages: yelling doesn't improve understanding, in either direction.

[05/18/17]   Having a heart for people doesn't mean that you have a natural connection for ministry. You need to be intentional about making those connections.

Nobody wants to be a project -- they want to be in relationship.

Something to consider: we're not always reaching down to the same people. There is more to a person than their attraction or orientation.

Shame isn't guilt. Shame says that there's something fundamentally flawed about me, and I reject myself because of it.

General information

The term Evangelical refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the Gospel and to the authority of Scripture as being inerrant in the original writings and the only safe guide for faith and practice. The term Free refers to our form of church government as being congregational, depending upon the active participation of believers for decisions and directions. Purpose Statement “To glorify God by serving in the birth and growth of healthy churches across Canada and around the world.” The phrase "birth of" implies a refocusing on church planting as well as church health.
