Last week, October 6 to October 8, the Isaiah 40 Foundation visited Christ the Redeemer, Danvers for their Becoming Whole healing conference. Its ecumenical team has a heavy Anglican presence; its president, The Rev. Canon Alex Cameron, is our own ADNE Canon of Leadership Development. Many diocesan members and leaders made up the prayer team at CTR this week as well, and they all joined together to bring teaching, prayer, and healing through Jesus Christ to the people who visited over the course of those three days.
The Isaiah 40 Foundation is a Christian counselling and teaching organization, based in Montreal, Canada, and committed to helping people integrate the fullness of life in Jesus Christ with their lives. Established by Vina Sweetman, who for 40 years faithfully counselled and taught people from all walks of life, its activities include organizing seminars, conferences, courses and retreats, supervising counselling interns, and seeing clients. These many activities are intended to provide personal insight into the healing that God offers at all stages and in all conditions of the Christian’s spiritual journey. The Isaiah 40 team members are deeply committed to the ministry of inner healing and personal wholeness through God’s grace and love, and they worked hard to bring that same Spirit to Christ the Redeemer through this particular seminar.
The seminar was designed to provide deeper insight into inner healing and to create and build awareness of God’s call to become channels of His healing love. It provided foundational principles and understanding regarding our relationship with God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit; with ourselves as body, soul and spirit; and with one another. Participants also learned to reclaim and maintain these essential relationships in order to live more effective lives. Some of the subjects presented were Healing the Whole Person, Affirming the True Masculine and Feminine, Gender and Identity, Healing the Effects of Sin and Generational Bondage, among others. At the end of each day, participants were given the opportunity to interact with and receive healing from the prayer team, as they interact with the Lord Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to apply the lessons heard and discussed to their hearts.
We are thankful for Isaiah 40’s hard work in ministry this past week, as well as for the excellent hospitality that Christ the Redeemer provided for the conference. We pray for Isaiah 40’s continued growth in ministry, both in Canada and in the United States, and we are particularly grateful for the opportunity to see The Rev. Canon Alex Cameron as president of this venerable organization. Let us remember to keep him in prayer.
