Special Guests

  • Dr. Tony Campolo — Professor, Author & Poverty Advocate
    Tony is heartbroken at the decimation in Port-au-Prince. Haiti has been under the loving care of Dr. Campolo's ministry since the 70s.

    Tony Campolo Quotes:
    • "I have three things I'd like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don't give a shit. Third, what's worse is that you're more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night."
    • "Jesus transcends partisan politics. That's what's wrong with the religious right... they have made Jesus into a Republican, and he's not!" "There are 2,000 verses of Scripture that tell us we must be committed to protecting the poor and the oppressed... There is no concern of Scripture that is addressed so often and so powerfully as reaching out to the poor."
    • "I've always been skeptical of those television healers who are bald. I mean, if I had that gift, that would be the first thing I'd fix."

    We'll also speak to a world Vision representative in Haiti and hear, firsthand, about the devastation and recovery efforts underway.

  • Brett Wilson — Entrepreneur, Star of CBC's The Dragon's Den
    Brett (nicknamed “Puff”) is known by many to be the nice dragon on CBC’s hit television show, Dragon’s Den. Raised a Catholic, Brett started questioning his beliefs at the early age of 10. However, a recent diagnosis of Prostate Cancer launched him into the search for healing, which ultimately opened his eyes up to the reality of a variety of spiritual modalities. Now this analytical, rational, engineer finds himself redefining his spiritual beliefs and considers himself a “reluctant agnostic.”

  • Sarah Walker — Christian Recording Artist
    Intuitive worship leader. Sensitive songwriter. Committed Christ-follower. Gifted artist. Everyday girl. Sarah Walker has been called all these things and more. Sarah’s debut release “Overflow” takes the listener on a journey with eleven songs that build momentum within the heart. With songs filled with faith and a challenge to see God’s Kingdom come, Sarah’s desire is that this album will inspire the Church to respond to God’s heart and take action, especially on issues of poverty and justice. As a reflection of her belief that acts of justice are one of our most profound acts of worship, Sarah is donating 50% of all of the proceeds from her debut CD to support education for orphans and vulnerable children in southern Africa through MCC’s Global Family Program.


  • Val Thomson
    Yvonne Martin was married with three grown boys, 10 grand children, and had battled cancer twice. She was the first Canadian to have been reported killed by the earthquake in Haiti. Val had the honour and privilege to work alongside of Yvonne in the same doctor’s office for the last 29-years. Val has been kind enough to join us this week to give us an update on how Yvonne’s family is doing and to give us a glimpse into the life of this incredibly unselfish woman – a woman who kept going back to Haiti because she was compelled by love.

Talkback, etc.

    This week on the Counsel Of Many: a man thinks his worship pastor is gay and wants to know how to confront him about it? Or should he just keep quiet and let someone else deal with it?

    “What do I do when, love for the Lord, love for congregation, and love for the Pastor and/or perhaps fear of being scolded after making an observation, keeps me from drawing attention to the fact that the "Minister of Music/Worship Leader" is obviously gay? Even newcomers to the church notice and make comments. It's so obvious in his speech and walk (like a woman-swings his hips side to side) and obsessive attention to eyebrow grooming and tanning, that it makes me wonder how the Pastors and other staff members are oblivious to it.”

  • Do you believe that Haiti’s apparent “deal with the devil” played any role in this week’s tragedy?
    American televangelist, Pat Robertson, is at it again folks. This time he suggested on his syndicated program, "The 700 Club," that the poverty-stricken country's long history of natural disasters and political turmoil stemmed from a deal with the devil made by the leaders of its 1791 revolution against French rule. "They said, 'We will serve you if you will get us free from the French.' True story. And so the devil said, 'OK, it's a deal,' but ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other," said the 79-year-old Christian Coalition founder and onetime Republican presidential candidate.
