Family Feud


The game show that is, not my house―never.

In Family Feud, where two families compete to win cash and prizes, the host asks a survey question that was previously posed to a group of 100 people. “100 people surveyed― the top eight answers are on the board…”

Some questions are funny and many answers as well.

But what I wonder is this. Where do they get these 100 people?

Wouldn’t it be fun to be part of that kind of poll? Silly, laid back, not life altering subjects at all, easy to answer and great entertainment.

I wonder what would a poll look like in Heaven? How would we answer?

Hmmm, would we always answer truthfully, or would we answer the way we think Christ wants us?

Matt8_9Christ’s poll may look like this:
How often do you pray?
How much of The Word do you read?
Did you feed the hungry?
Did you cloth the naked?
Did you answer when I knocked?

Even as I write this I am saddened by my own answers.

What can we do to fix this? We can do what Christ asks us. The game show would no longer be called Family Feud, would it? What would you call a game show that asked such powerful questions?

Reality is not game; it is a lifestyle―to walk with Christ and do what He commands so we are able to answer the questions with our heart, mind and soul.

Let us change Family Feud to Christ Love. Change the poll results so that when Christ hears the answers He smiles and says well done my child.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is September 30th


The Salvation Army Oshawa acknowledges the many Indigenous nations with longstanding relationships with the territories upon which our Church and our Community & Family Services are located. We acknowledge the land is covered under the Williams Treaties, and is part of the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

These ancestral and treaty lands; the present-day home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people is where we meet, share hope, and build community.

We reflect on knowing the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home. We are treaty people, it is our privilege to build relationships through reconciliation.

While we cannot undo the past, we are committed to a different future and doing our part to contribute to an equitable, just, and grace-filled society.
