On December 2 at 6:30 pm a three-part series began at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey, BC. Entitled “Reimagining God”, Ty Gibson, a passionate author and motivator, delved into the problems with our current picture of God. Ty Gibson painted a picture of God worth more than a passing glance. Gibson highlighted how a conventional understanding of God often conflicts with rationality; thereby creating atheism. It is often overlooked that much of the atheistic mentality is not grounded in science, but rather rational thought. By changing our understanding of the nature of God, much of these inconsistencies can be answered. One problem many people have is the notion that a loving God would allow such horrific acts in the world. Ty Gibson drew on his own personal experience to answer this question. Growing up in a severely abusive household, Gibson was able to draw on his first-hand experience and reconcile this apparent contradiction.
Ty Gibson has authored eight books, including his most recent best-selling release, A God Named Desire. He is the lead pastor of the Storyline Church in Eugene, Oregon and Co-director of Light Bearers, an international media ministry. He is a captivating speaker that uses personal and relatable stories to resonate with the audience and provide greater context for his message.
In addition to the message, singer and songwriter Brandon Bee (his actual name) traveled from Washington to lead the worship service each night. Each of Brandon’s sets featured popular praise music that the audience could sing along to, as well as some of his original music that all could enjoy. After the first song, it was clear to see that Brandon is fulfilling his calling by using his talents to lead others in worship.
This was Let’s Move Vancouver’s last event for the year. The intimate setting brought to a close what has been an amazing year.
