This was a historical moment.

Franklin Graham and Artur Pawlowski in Poland!

Festival of Hope and March for Jesus partnered in what turned out to be the biggest evangelistic crusade in the history of Poland.

This amazing event took place in Warsaw, Poland on the 14 and 15 of June 2014. Festival of Hope and March for Jesus...


"The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven't yet come to the end of themselves. We're still trying to give orders, and interfering with God's work within us. "

The festival tent is set up in the middle of a clearing in the the Ronald Reagan Park. Curiosity drew passers-by inside. There are groups playing and people speaking. Yesterday it was the Holyguns band. Today it's the group Ahead of Us. Both are musical treats. They sing their own lyrics, flowing straight from their hearts. The musicians are genuine and encompassed in the reality of God. Their passion is contagious. During the concert there is also opportunity to listen to testimonies and see some skits, illustrating what Jesus Christ has done for men. It's all deeply moving.

People strolling in the park are wearing nice clothes and riding expensive bikes. It seems as if they had everything together in their lives. They are smiling. But when they listen to the words of anointed songs, testimonies and to the Word of God, they start to reflect on life. They come up to us and ask for prayer. We find out that most of these people are like biblical sheep without a shepherd. They have their fair share of misery in life, they are overwhelmed, afraid, they don't know how to handle their problems and they don't know where they could look for help. We pray together. We can see the Spirit moving. Three people give their lives to Christ. We believe that in the spiritual realm this act opens their life up to God and is the starting point for changes in their lives (Revelation 3:20). Three people that we have prayed for a few days ago come up to us and tell us about what has already changed. We give glory to God.

An elderly gentleman: Please pray for my wife, she is in hospital. She is very ill.

Danka: When I was younger, I was close to God. Then I started living my own way. Life hasn't treated me well. I'd like to come back to God, but I don't know how. Please pray for me.

Elderly lady: My husband's got cancer. My son's got cancer. My son-in-law's got cancer. My results aren't good either. I was afraid to ask for prayer, but now I've got hope again.

Guy and a girl: Please pray for God's blessing for us.

Young woman: My back's broken. It's really bad. I'm in serious pain. I've also got thyroid problems. (After a brief prayer the pain recedes and the woman makes some moves she was not able to do before. We give glory to God).

Young man: Because of what I have seen here, I started praying for people again and I can see God moving. I'm happy again.

Girl: I'm a believer, but I suffer depression. Please pray for me.

Mrs. Maria: I've had some problems with my throat for many months now. Antibiotics aren't working. Please pray for me. (After a short prayer the pain stops).

Mrs. Lucyna: My husband decided to trust this person and he got himself into debts. That has really affected our relationship. Please pray for our marriage.

Many, many more people asked for prayer.

We tell every person about who Jesus Christ is, why He came into this world and what He wanst to offer us. We give them a Bible. We give them some guidelines about living with God and we invite them to church.

It seems that spiritually this was the most profound day of the week so far. The myth about Polish people not being open to the gospel was officially busted. People are cautious in fear of being hurt by others, but they are open to Jesus Christ. He gives them a sense of security and it is obvious He is present in this place today.

Every local sports team and political party represented, everyone welcome at largest Pride parade ever in Calgary PDF Print E-mail
Written by Calgary Sun

By Damien Wood, Calgary Sun

Kicking off what’s shaping up to the largest Pride parade ever in Calgary is an exciting proposition for Del Shores.

The teller of tales and this year’s grand marshal for the centrepiece of Pride Calgary’s annual celebration says events such as this, in many cities, have meant a lot to him since he came out.

But he said in Calgary especially, “It seems like everybody is really on board and everybody is supportive ... and it’s really wonderful.”

“I think (Calgary’s) in a great place right now,” he said.

Sunday, for the first time in Pride Calgary’s history, there will be representatives from every local sports organization and political party marching.

Flames, Stampeders, Roughnecks, Hitmen and women’s hockey Inferno will all be accounted for, according to Pride Calgary spokeswoman Tansy Wong.

As will the PC Party of Alberta, Wildrose, Liberals, NDP and Alberta Party.

Wong said she’s heard PC leadership hopefuls Jim Prentice and Thomas Lukaszuk will be there, as well Wildrose leader Danielle Smith.

Also in the parade are more than 100 entries.

“We’re excited for the fact that it’s growing bigger and bigger,” she said.

With high-profile political names taking part, Shores said that’s something far different than what’s seen at many Pride events Stateside where he’s from.

Regardless of whether they do it because it’s a cause near and dear or they do it to be seen in front of thousands of people, it’s an important statement, both Shores and Wong agree.

“In the States you’ve got the Democrats jumping on the board but the Republicans are not,” Shores said.

“We need to take and support anybody.

“If there’s an agenda, OK ... (still) you’re marching on the right side of history.”

Wong noted every political party likely has members who would not be willing to show the same support, so for a leadership figure to so is taking a chance.

“Being part of the parade is a huge statement,” she said.

Bottom line, she said, everyone is welcome at the parade.

It is the spirit of Pride, after all.

Wong said Pride Calgary, “has always tried to be as inclusive as possible,” and “create a safe place, for everybody ... it doesn’t matter (who), we’re all included and celebrating our diversity.”

According to Pride Calgary, the parade will start at 12 p.m. from Stephen Avenue and Centre St. and make its way to Shaw Millennium Park.

Organizers blown away by attendance, support

Gay, straight, young and old, Calgarians of all stripes and colours turned out to support the city’s LGBT community at the 24th annual Calgary Pride Parade.

A crowd of around 50,000 people attended the parade and ensuing festival at Shaw Millenium Park Sunday afternoon, exceeding expectations and previous attendance records.

“It’s absolutely amazing to see that many more people coming out,” said Steven Wright, president of Pride Calgary. “It’s exploded this year, it’s incredible. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going.”

The parade, which kicked off at noon along Stephen Avenue, featured 100 entries, including local businesses, community groups, sports teams, churches and politicians. Floats and costumes ranged from colourful to kinky, with no shortage of rainbow flags in sight.

Wright said in a conservative city like Calgary, it felt good to see not only members of the LGBT community but plenty of straight allies and families.

“I think it’s great they’re coming out and supporting the community and that’s what we want,” he said. “People understand who we are and they see, ‘Oh there’s nothing wrong with this.’”

All three Progressive Conservative leadership candidates showed up, with Jim Prentice marching with the PC Youth of Alberta and Thomas Lukaszuk alongside Camp Fyrefly. Ric McIver did not march but attended after shifting around his schedule last minute, he said. Wildrose leader Danielle Smith, and NDP leadership candidates Rachel Notley and David Eggen were also there.

Minister of Family and Community Safety Sandra Jansen gave a speech that touched on anti-bullying issues.

“I will not rest until every student in this province who wants one gets a (gay-straight alliance) because they save lives,” she said.

But James Demers, a transgendered performer with the Fake Mustache drag kings troupe, pointed out that the gay-straight alliance bill put forth by Liberal MLA Kent Hehr was voted down in legislature.

“I think it’s ironic that there are conservative politicians in the Pride Parade, marching here, that don’t actually support the gay community whatsoever,” he said. “Their practice in legislature doesn’t follow the lip service we get at these events.”

The parade was followed up by song and dance numbers, DJ sets, bouncy castles, food trucks and a beer garden at Shaw Millenium Park. Amanda Bezanson, 32, and her baby girl were two of the many first-timers joining in the festivities.

“I just want to get her saturated in being able to be who you are,” said Bezanson.

Curtis Dell, 39, who was at the parade with his longtime boyfriend, said it was the first year his parents came with him.

“It was pretty cool, I think it’s good for them to see the families and parents with their gay children.”

Longtime Pride-goer 52-year-old David Stewart commended the Calgary event for how far it’s come.

“It’s grown leaps and bounds,” said Stewart. “The thing that impressed me was to see the police presence, it’s triple what it was.”

Andy Buck, LGBTQ liaison officer with the Calgary police, said the larger contingent was to show support to the community as well as gay members in the force.

Wright and several attendees said in the future they’d like to see an even bigger turnout and more corporate support; this year, Shell became the first oil and gas company to sponsor the event.

This year’s Calgary Pride Festival gets political PDF Print E-mail
Written by Metro

I love Calgary’s Pride Festival. I love how it celebrates everyone, I love how it’s family friendly and I love how it’s the only parade in this city that if not dealt with properly, can send even the most organized political campaign into a tailspin.

This year’s parade comes on the heels of a year full of political struggle for Alberta’s LGTBQ community. It seems surprising, but it’s hard to ignore that so many of this province’s politicians are still actively working against gay equality.

So far this year, we’ve dealt with the government overwhelming voting against Gay Straight Alliances in our schools, Ric McIver walking in the hateful March for Jesus Parade and then there’s the government’s continued support of Bill 44, which allows parents to pull students from some education elements that they feel contradict their religious beliefs – specifically discussions that involve any mention of sexual orientation.

Both Jim Prentice and McIver have expressed their support for this bill.

Yet, Prentice, who’s currently in the running to be the new leader of the PC party, is planning on walking in this weekend’s parade. How can he support a homophobic bill and also walk in this city’s Pride parade? Your guess is as good as mine. So if you see him, ask him. Alberta’s children deserve an answer.

McIver, too, is in the running to be Alberta’s next boss. Ric told me earlier this summer that attending the Pride parade didn’t fit into his schedule.  This week he had a change of heart and said on Twitter he would be at the parade to meet his bosses.

Makes sense, why would any politician miss out on an opportunity to be seen by at least 40,000 people.  But the fact that he too supports the homophobic Bill 44 is very much cause for concern.  Are these men going because they truly believe in supporting the LGTBQ community, or because they want to be the next Premier?  It seems like they’re trying to pander to one too many groups and now their messaging doesn’t even make sense.

I’m happy that all of these politicians, and even the Calgary Flames and Stampeders, will be walking in the Pride parade – many for the first time – each one of them a role model, in some way, to Albertans.

But their participation doesn’t mean that Alberta is in the clear when it comes to equality.

McIver, Prentice and the Wildrose Party, who also voted against the GSAs and have definitely struggled with the LGTBQ messaging in the past, all have to ask themselves why they’re there and more importantly, we have to ask: do we believe them?

The annual Airdrie Canada Day parade had a high-profile participant.

Progressive Conservative leadership hopeful Ric McIver marched along with the Airdrie Pride Society’s (APS) float to celebrate and support the city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community.

“I am happy to be part of it,” said McIver. “As premier I would be working for all Albertans and representing all Albertans and recognizing the equality of all Albertans and that is the attitude I have always had and the one I will take into the future.”

McIver’s involvement followed a media storm that occurred in mid-June after he was involved with the Calgary March for Jesus, organized by street preacher Art Pawlowski.

The march’s website conincludes language denouncing homosexuality, calling it a “wrong sexual preference.”

McIver made a statement apologizing for his lack of due diligence several days after his involvement with the march.

“What I did not do and what I regret and what I apologize for is I did not do my homework,” he said. “It turns out there is an ugly website attached to it and I am just angry about it.”

McIver was joined in Airdrie’s parade by Allan Hunter.

“My job is not to condemn, my job is to love and support people and make sure they are not judged by anyone,” said Hunter when asked why he marched with the APS. “They were all human beings I was walking with.”

According to a statement penned by Elizabeth Hough-Metcalf, president of the APS, McIver was invited to take part in the parade as part of a public call for volunteers via social media.

“APS does not endorse nor support any political party or candidate,” read the statement.

“However, all people, including those affiliated with a political party or candidate, are welcome to participate as any of the following: members, friends, and supporters of the (LGBTQ) community. We see all our participants as a positive force in providing a safe and respectful environment in which individuals are able to freely express their diversity and pride, especially on Canada Day.”

McIver, who is vying to take over former premier Alison Redford’s spot, is campaigning against former cabinet minister Thomas Lukaszuk and former federal minister Jim Prentice, widely believed to be the frontrunner.

The Calgary MLA, who claims to be on the conservative side of the PC party, said he will continue to campaign until the September vote.

“It’s a tie until people start voting,” he said.

“I am talking to Albertans about protecting their future and about making sure their children as well as their grandchildren have the same opportunities as we do today.”
