Powerful Weaklings

Posted by Tim LaTour on

When I got to high school, I started getting more serious about playing sports. I thought the best way to get better was to start working out, so I started going to the weight room at my school.  I would try to do different exercises, but I was so weak I could barely lift the bar. As time...

We Are All Witnesses

Posted by Tim LaTour on

For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For when He received honour and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my...

Hide and Seek

Posted by Tim LaTour on

I have a confession: sometimes I play hide and seek. I know I’m not a kid anymore but I still feel the need to play this game. That’s right, I said “need.” I don’t know about you but I can get distracted pretty easily. It’s a struggle I think we all share...

The Spirit Made Me Do It

Posted by Tim LaTour on

We’ve just had two consecutive weeks of baptism ceremonies at Island ECC and we’re going to have one more next week! That’s how much a typhoon can change our schedules. We love Baptism Sunday at our church. It’s always so encouraging to see people share their life...

Ultimate Sweetness

Posted by Tim LaTour on

We just started a new sermon series called “Sweet and Sour” that is taking a look at how we are to have life to the full, but there will also be trouble. I’ve been reading through the book of Acts lately and there was a passage that struck me as somewhat of a “sweet and...

Loving Sacrifice

Posted by Tim LaTour on

Over the last month, I’ve had the privilege of teaching a dating class at our church. This class serves as a Biblical and practical course for the dating life, but it also is designed to help us prepare for marriage. Also, during this month, I’ve had the honour of performing two...

Nostalgia

Posted by Tim LaTour on

I’ll be the first to admit that I love nostalgia. I love going “back in time” in my mind and soaking in the past. Just yesterday, I stumbled upon a YouTube video of a string of old TV commercials from my childhood (yes, commercials!). I was entranced by them. I remembered so...

Wounded

Posted by Tim LaTour on

I had a bit of a “rude awakening” today. Our mornings are usually busy getting kids ready for school. This morning, as I was making breakfast for my daughter, I knocked over a glass that shattered on the floor. As I jumped to get out of the way, my foot landed on one of the pieces of...

Attend to My Cry!

Posted by Tim LaTour on

You are not alone. Let that sink in for a moment. Meditate on that thought for a while. Think about it…for just a moment. You are not alone. We live in a very performance based environment where weakness is not often celebrated. Most of the time we live our lives projecting a sense of...

Navigating the Waters

Posted by Tim LaTour on

Imagine taking everything in your home – every piece of furniture, every picture, all clothing, all electronics…everything – and throwing it in the rubbish. That’s what many of my friends and family members are doing in my hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. No...
