Rev. David Burrows' Retirement sept 13/2015

Posted on September 5, 2015 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (1)

Rev. David Burrows is an open hearted and considerate pastor who welcomed the Sudanese Community Church of Toronto to be part of the Christian Community at St. Olave’s Anglican Church. Without prior knowledge of the Sudanese Community, in a phone call, he says “Welcome”. It is rare to find a shepherd fill with Love of scattered flock that look for a posture, but David is one with open hands to give and receive the needy. In his time of Retirement, we will miss him to be close to us but his spirit of Love remains fresh and cherishes our souls and faith on daily basis. Rev. David, May the Lord, Almighty God reward you abundantly, and guide and protect in His grace throughout your retirement and whatever you may have. We cannot express in words the happiness and trust we have on you, God alone will provide you. We will keep you in our prayers, and best wishes. God bless David!



Team Work

Commitment:

My goal to join the Church team is defined by a team work. I would like to be committed to team work, learn from one another and share whatever skills I have to make a difference in my community and to see how I can be a blessing to others.

 

As defined below according to my research on teamwork, tight united team is a group of competent individuals who care deeply about each other. They are sincerely committed to their mission, and are highly motivated to combing their energy and expertise to achieve a common objective. From our observation and studies on teamwork in the workplaces and churches, we have found three primary conditions that have to be met in order to attain higher levels of team performance and member satisfaction:

1. Resources and Commitment

2. Ownership and Heart

3. Learning

These three conditions are the heart and soul of teamwork. These conditions are not a blueprint. Each group is unique, and the specifics and details of teamwork have to be worked out separately. Let's look closer at number one - Resources and Commitment.

The Dictionary defines teamwork as the actions of individuals, brought together for a common purpose or goal, which subordinates the needs of the individual to the needs of the group. In essence, each person on the team puts aside his or her individual needs to work towards the larger group objective. The interactions among the members and the work they complete is called teamwork.

Many management groups define teamwork as a group of individuals passionately committed to their end goal. When groups have common goals, teamwork is essential to success. Teachers expect teamwork among students and provide them with group projects so that they can learn teamwork skills. Employers expect individuals to function effectively on various teams and most organizations convene teams to tackle problems or projects. Therefore, it’s important to learn teamwork skills, even if you prefer to work independently.

 

Teamwork Skills: What does teamwork look like in action? First, group members focus on the goal. People put aside personal likes and dislikes and petty grievances to get the job done. Team members show passion for the project and each contributes to its success.

Skills necessary for good teamwork include:

• Respect for individual contributions

• Putting aside individual glory

• Consensus building

• Clear communication

• Persuasive speech

• Compromise

All too often we compete for personal rewards at the expense of others. We act as though our department is in a race with other departments, and we take our eye off the real competition. The fact of the matter is that we have found few organizations that are committed enough to base some of the reward system on teamwork and make it a priority. It seems that in earlier generations it wasn't a big problem and teamwork was naturally rewarding. People on the farms had to cooperate to survive. Successful crops and survival of the livestock depended on joining the efforts of many. Barns and homes were constructed as a result of teamwork, only we called it being neighborly.

Amazing things could be accomplished today if we could get members and leaders to trust and commit to the teamwork process of joint problem solving, consensus decision making and shared leadership and win/win conflict resolution.

Bishop Poole & Ven Fenty's Visit 29. Jan 2012

Posted on December 3, 2011 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The Bishop of The York-Credit Valley Episcopal Area, Rt. Rev. Philip Poole and The Ven. Peter Fenty, Archdeacon of York and Executive Officer to the Bishop of Toronto visit the Sudanese Community Church of Toronto and St. Olave's Anglican Church on January 29th 2012 at 10 30 am. This is a get together occasion for the people of the two sister churches to know themselves.

It is worth mentioning that through efforts of Ven. Peter Fenty who worked with us tirelessly to see that the Sudanese Community Church finds a place for worship and Rt Rev Philip Poole’s considerate recommendation, we are able to attain Rev. David Burrows' cordial welcome for the Sudanese Community Church of Toronto to worship at St. Olave’s Anglican Church. How important we feel to come together as flocks of the same barn, Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour!

Our struggle to find a place for worship could have not been easy without the help of Rev. David Burrows and his considerate Church Council Members, who open heartedly, welcome us as brothers and children of God. Every moment that we have in St. Olave’s Anglican Church brings blessings and encouragement that we have brothers and sisters to stand with us at time of our needs. Let us give thanks to God and pray to have our dreams come to pass. When you reach out to other people in need, God will make sure that your needs are supplied. Come and join us to receive the amazing blessings!

 

Prayer request

Please Pray my soul mate has already been prepared for me and I have already been prepared for my soul mate. Pray GOD unites me and my soul mate together real soon. Never been on a date or ever had a girlfriend and been Praying and hoping for this for at least 18 years... Prov 13:12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life... Please Pray GOD Blesses me so I can bless others in every way every day of my life. Pray I can help people who are targeted by every kind of evil 100% of the time. Pray GOD Blesses me to be able to expose evil 100% of the time and evil will not be able to hide once exposed. Pray a hedge of protection around mind body and soul. Pray GOD overflows me with HIS Power, HOLY SPIRIT and Presence in my life. Pray the HOLY SPIRIT is so strong in my life that Satan and his servants will flee with terror because GODS presence is so strong in my life. Pray my body would be a strong vessel for the HOLY SPIRIT. Pray GOD causes Satan and those used by Satan great confusion when they come against me with their evil plans and Pray GOD sends His angels to fight along side me when is happens. Pray GOD cuffs me in His Hand when evil comes against me. Pray GOD raises me light-years above Satan and those used by Satan to glorify GOD. Pray GOD watches over me at all times. Pray GOD takes away all my fear and increases my faith. Pray GOD heals my body completely. Pray all the people that have seen my Prayer Requests in past years will be reminded to Pray for my Prayer Requests again. Pray all the people who saw my Prayer Requests in the past years will have it put it in their hearts and minds to Pray for my past Prayer Requests again...In JESUS Name Amen...Thanks for your Prayers...
