Fair Trade, Pt.1 - The Immediate for the Ultimate


February 3, 2019 - Pastor Barry Clair starts a new series of messages called "Fair Trade" with message "The Immediate for the Ultimate"

How many of you like to get a great deal?  I don't think anyone likes to pay more for a product or service than they should.

For centuries, the Western developed countries of the world have exploited underdeveloped, impoverished countries by taking their natural resources or products at pennies and selling them for dollars.  Often the developing countries have the superior product, such as coffee beans, [that] are grown in some of the most exotic places in the world.  Because these small farmers don't have access to major markets, they are forced to sell them at bargain basement prices.

The 'Fair Trade' movement has been trying to correct this inequity throughout the world.  These 'Fair Trade' companies are buying the product at an economically fair price.  A fair trade, then, is a bargain between two entities that allows both parties to profit.

Sometimes, however, we profit at the expense of another.  This series attempts to use this concept in a spiritual way.

JOY, Part 4 - Enjoying Prayer


January 13, 2019 - Pastor Barry Clair brings the fourth message in the series called "JOY" with message "Enjoying Prayer"

This is the week that we at Tiffany Fellowship Church have set aside for prayer and fasting.  I believe it is always important to begin the year with a dedicated time of consecration.  I think it is important for us to come together in connected community for prayer.  To that end, I'd like to talk today about prayer as it relates to joy.

For some of us, prayer is sometimes nothing more than just a 911 call to heaven.  We want God on our speed-dial, but many of us don't want to devote too much time to the work of prayer.  And let's face it, we're much more motivated when there is an emergency...
