Another victory for Artur Pawlowski and Street Church!

Do you remember the story from last year called “Guilty by Association”. The three of us, Sheldon Wrubleski, Nick Bicak and myself went to the Body, Soul & Spirit expo that was held down at the Big Four building on the Calgary Stampede grounds.

Around 5:30PM a number of armed police officers along side...

INSPIRING QUOTES

“In life the turn coat (traitor) is never trustworthy by either side. The one that he betrayed will hate him and the other that benefited from his treachery will fear him. After all what is going to stop the “turn coat” from betraying him as well.”

March for Jesus – Gdańsk 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Artur Pawlowski   
Friday, 14 November 2014 03:35

The March for Jesus, a prominent event gathering about 1000 people, took place in Gdansk, closing the Jesus Week in this city. People wearing T-shirts with evangelical messages and national symbols paraded the main streets of Gdansk.

The idea of the March is to proclaim to the nation who Jesus Christ really is. “We aren’t marching to protest against something or someone. We are here because we are grateful to God and we want to rejoice and bless people” – said one of the organizers. “We live in a religious country, where everybody has heard about Jesus as a historical person, but they don’t know Him as a Savior, who can offer them life. We are wearing national symbols, because the participants are declaring that they want Jesus to be the Lord of Poland. If He isn’t Lord, someone or something else will take His place. It’s not about enthroning Jesus to be our king in the political sense, but about spiritually committing our country to God’s rule. Just like Daniel, who confessed sins on behalf of all Israel (Daniel 9), we want to invite God on behalf of the whole nation to hold the course and destiny of our country in His hand. This is the only remedy for our problems with addictions, corruption, dishonesty, confusion, broken relationships and low self-esteem of most Polish people”.

The March opened with a prayer giving thanks to God for the governing authorities in Poland – the President, Prime Minister, Parliament and Senate. We prayed for God’s blessing in line with the teaching of the Bible: “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, or kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (…) I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting” (1 Timothy 2:1-8).

The route of the March included strategic points in the city: The Town Hall, The Marshal’s Office, The Gdańsk Shipyard, the office of Lech Walesa in the Old Town. At each of these points the participants of the March stopped to pray for wisdom and blessing for the people working for these institutions. At the head of the March there was a flat bed truck carrying a worship team and the host of the event.

Artur Pawłowski shared how the ancient nation of Israel joyfully celebrated their God at important historical sites (1 Chronicles 13:8). He encouraged the participants of the March to do very same thing in front of the Gdansk Shipyard, which is an important place in the history of Poland. Everybody started dancing to the sounds of Jewish melodies, rejoicing in the Lord. It was a beautiful expression of the triumph of God’s reality.

The residents of the city, who observed what was happening, taking photos and filming the parade, could hear the news that Jesus Christ is interested in their life. At the same time many talented musicians played joyful music, proclaiming Christ’s victory over sin. The participants of the March greeted the people in the streets, sometimes stepping out of the parade to bless the onlookers. Most people responded by waving their hands and smiling.  

Going down the main walkway of the Old Town – Długa Street was a very special moment. Thousands of people stood on both sides watching the March pass by, while the worship team played such songs as: “Bless the Lord Oh My Soul”. It was a moment of profound symbolism.

At the end of Długa Street, by the Green Gate, a big stage was set up, where the final events of both the March for Jesus and the whole Jesus Week took place. The Ahead of Us band started with an exciting performance. Then pastors from 25 churches from Gdansk summed up the Jesus Week. After that we could see the star of the afternoon – Grzegorz Kloc with his band. Grzegorz is an artist known from public radio and television. He played this concert to God’s great glory. We found out that he isn’t only a talented musician, but also a gifted preacher. He played music and talked about the depths of the human heart. People listened, worshiped, cried and danced. It was a wonderful worship service right in the centre of the city. One of the most touching moments was when three homeless men became convicted of the state they’re in. They asked for prayer. They confessed their sins. They kissed the Bibles they have received.

During worship many people responded to the call and came forward to receive prayer. Among them was an elderly couple. The man was in a wheelchair. He asked for prayer about the strong pain in his knees. Both were believers and enthusiastic about God. The lady said that she had cancer but she overcame it. The doctors said they can find only one explanation of her recovery. “God saved you!”. After a brief prayer the pain in the gentleman’s knees receded. Everyone rejoiced in God’s goodness.

On my way back I heard two young men criticizing the March for Jesus.

- Why are you so critical? There is a deep significance to this event – I said.

- Yeah? What kind of significance?

- It speaks about the One who can change lives, about Jesus Christ. I participated once in a prayer when a person who was blind in one eye regained eyesight. He was blind because his mom was drunk when he was conceived and she was drunk when he was delivered. That’s the God we proclaim.

- Wow, that’s powerful.

- I’d like to pray for you. – I laid my hand on his shoulder and spoke words of blessing.

- Thanks for talking to us. – He was clearly touched.

“The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few” (Luke 10:2). We need disciples in our churches, who will reach out to people to tell them about the Good News and show them what it is really about.

Calgary street preacher won't face additional punishment for parade interference: judge PDF Print E-mail
Written by Calgary Sun

Calgary street preacher Art Pawlowski won’t face additional punishment for instigating the hijacking of the Stampede parade two years ago, a judge ruled Monday.

Provincial court Judge Mark Tyndale agreed with defence counsel Michael Bates that Pawlowski should not be severely punished for attempting to exercise his right to free speech.

City prosecutor Ola Malik had argued a fine of up to $2,000 — 10 times the normal amount — would be appropriate, given that Pawlowski was the “ringleader” of a planned interruption of the annual march.

Pawlowski and three of his Street Church Ministry followers were convicted earlier this year of breaching a city bylaw prohibiting interfering with parades.

“I don’t know if the others would have stepped into the parade route without Mr. Pawlowski,” Malik said.

The prosecutor earlier agreed the followers should be handed the stipulated penalty in the bylaw of $200.

Tyndale questioned why Pawlowski should be treated differently from the others, and handed a fine above what city council set as the normal penalty.

“Did he do anything differently than the other three?” Tyndale said.

“No, but he said ‘let’s go,’” Malik noted.

“It’s his leadership that the others are looking up to and following,” the prosecutor said.

He also noted Street Church Ministry received a lot of publicity for jumping into the front of the parade at the start line behind the pace car and remaining there for almost the entire route.

“This is the most amount of publicity Street Church Ministry has ever received,” Malik said.

“They’re getting all the attention and loving it,” he said.

“They picked the largest event, the most-watched event to engage in.”

But the judge noted it wasn’t Street Church which received publicity by their participation, since they were carrying signs which spelled out the name “Jesus.”

“The Crown conceded that the bylaw itself contravened Mr. Pawlowski’s (free speech) rights,” said Tyndale, who earlier found it was a justifiable breach of the Charter.

“In my view Mr. Pawlowski had valid concerns over the scope of the bylaw and contested the bylaw in an appropriate manner,” Tyndale said.

“Mr. Pawlowski is a man who considers his Charter rights, especially freedom of expression and freedom of religion as more tangible than words written on a document,” he said.

The judge agreed with Bates’ assertion the actions of his client amounted to a “test case” of the bylaw’s validity.

Street preacher fined for attempt to ‘hijack’ Stampede parade PDF Print E-mail

The judge said said that when the Stampede Parade pace car passed their location, Pawlowski and his Street Church followers left the side of the road, entered the parade route, and began to walk behind the pace car as though they were leading the parade.

Street Church preacher Artur Pawlowski was fined Monday for breaking a city bylaw by trying to crash the 2012 Calgary Stampede parade with a group of his parishioners.

Provincial court Judge Mark Tyndale said in sentencing Pawlowski that he did not feel it was necessary to go beyond the $200 minimum amount prescribed by the City of Calgary when it drafted the bylaw, even though the Stampede felt the preacher had "hijacked" the 2012 parade.

Tyndale said he did not believe that Pawlowski or his fellow parishioners committed the offence for any personal gain, but just to get his message across to the public.

"He agreed to move on after he was confronted," said Tyndale. "The city police cyclists rode behind him to separate them optically from the next float, the Calgary Stampede Marching Band. Police were there to keep the peace and deal with any unforeseen incidents arising.

"Mr. Pawlowski strikes me as a man who is committed to his Charter rights, especially freedom of expression and religion, more than the intangible words written on documents."

City prosecutor Ola Malik had sought a minimum fine of $1,000 up to $2,000. Defence lawyer Michael Bates said it did not warrant more than the specified fine.

"We're lucky nobody was injured because of this situation," said Malik. "This is the city's most difficult event to arrange, thus the fine should be pushed upwards."

Tyndale had found Pawlowski and the three others guilty in June of breaching the Calgary Municipal Traffic Bylaw, which carries a maximum fine of $10,000. The other three accused were also previously handed $200 fines and the judge felt they should not be treated differently.

In his written decision released on Friday, provincial court Judge Mark Tyndale upheld and said Pawlowski's rights to freedom of expression may have been infringed to an extent, but Pawlowski contravened the same rights of both the Stampede and spectators at the July 6, 2012 downtown parade to kick off the Stampede.

"No right enjoyed by Canadians, including a fundamental right such as freedom of expression, is limitless," Tyndale said at the time in convicting Pawlowski, Jacek Mrozek, Marzena Podpryga and David Pawlowski of the same infraction.

Court heard police were called after Pawlowski and about 40 of his Street Church parishioners, dressed in medieval outfits, congregated on the north side of the parade route that July day. Five members carried shields four feet high, each with a letter spelling out 'Jesus.'

To avoid the disruption that Pawlowski's protestations could cause, the Stampede offered them the opportunity to join at the back of the parade.

"Pawlowski's only response was that he would not be treated like a dog," Tyndale said.

Tyndale said as soon as the parade began and the pace car passed their location, Pawlowski and his Street Church followers left the side of the road, entered the parade route, and began to walk behind the pace car as though they were leading the parade.

"The Calgary Stampede felt that Mr. Pawlowski and his group had 'hijacked' the Centenary Calgary Stampede Parade,," the judge asserted.

The group proceeded to march in front of the parade for most of its route.

Bates had argued there was no provision in the Criminal Code that prohibits the peaceable, albeit unwanted, joining in with a parade, as long as no other criminal conduct is exhibited.

The Calgary Police Service determined Pawlowski was not committing any criminal offences that day, he said.

Malik said outside court the case “was not about rights to freedom of religion.”

“Stampede organizers have the right to carry out parades because they are granted permission. This acts as a form of expression by the Stampede, and Street Church interfered with those rights,” Malik said.

Tyndale noted Pawlowski’s determination to be a part of the parade had been a concern for several years. He has also clashed with the city over sermons via loudspeakers in inner city parks for years.

Malik said Pawlowski, who has been banned from participating in the parade, has not caused any disruptions the past two years.

Do you remember the story from last year called “Guilty by Association”. The three of us, Sheldon Wrubleski, Nick Bicak and myself went to the Body, Soul & Spirit expo that was held down at the Big Four building on the Calgary Stampede grounds.

Around 5:30PM a number of armed police officers along side of three security guards and two Calgary Stampede personnel approached our booth and stated that we were trespassing on the property and had to leave immediately or else we would be arrested (here is the full story:http://www.streetchurch.ca/news-journals-topmenu-37/978-guilty-by-association). We were shortly escorted out of the building and not allowed to take any of our equipment and show supplies with us. All three of us received summons for trespassing and were told that we are never allowed back on Stampede property, ever again!

On Monday November 3 2014 the Crown prosecutor in the light of our constitutional challenge withdraw all of the charges giving us yet again another amazing victory!

The enemy is on the run and God once again proved to be the one that has the final say.

Praise Jesus!

Vigil at Central Memorial Park in Calgary PDF Print E-mail
Written by News   
Thursday, 30 October 2014 16:38

In the light of the recent events, terrorist attacks in Canada, Calgary has organized its own vigil for the fallen soldiers. The event was organized by Merle Terlesky at the Central Memorial Park in honour of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrent Officer Patrice Vincent who were both killed while unarmed in targeted attacks within a single week.

The vigil began by a prayer done by a well known preacher, Artur Pawlowski. The minister thanked God for the soldiers that serve and protect our country and all of us. He asked God for comfort to the families of the fallen soldiers and thanked those gathered for their compassion and for their heart: "May God bless those who daily risk and sacrifice their lives in the line of duty and may He protect them all, in Jesus name" he concluded.

The prayer was followed by a minute of silence and the singing of the national anthem. Member of Parliament Joan Crokatt then addressed the crowd saying "This is Canada, strong and free, land of the brave, they were the brave who stood for us." she said. Senator-in-waiting Mike Shaikh spoke and then Member of Parliament Rob Anders addressed the crowd talking about arming soldiers who are off-duty to better protect us. He said: "If we trust them enough to send them to war we should trust them to also carry side arms when they are of duty so they can protect us at all times".

The vigil ended with an assurance from Riazuddin Ahmed of the Islamic Association of Calgary Northwest "As canadians we are all grieved by what had happened and we all have to make sure that this will not happen again".

About 150 people came to give their respects to the fallen soldiers during the rally at Central Memorial Park in Calgary, Alta., on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014.

Of course the mainstream media manipulated the story to suit their own propaganda. They purposely opted from the story, both Member of Parliament Rob Anders and minister Artur Pawlowski well known advocates against abortion and homosexuality.

Here are the pictures of what really happened.
