God`s Masterpiece

“…bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” - 1 Corinthians 13:7


The Singles for Christ (SFC), a ministry of Couples for Christ in Winnipeg, hosted this year’s True North Conference (TNC) last August 14 to 16 at the University Centre, University of Manitoba. The event gathered 250 single men and women from the different provinces/territories of Canada, all hungry for God’s message and longing to experience Christ through this three-day conference. The International Coordinator of SFC, Noli Manuel, attended the conference.


This year’s conference is anchored on 1 Corinthians 13:7, which speaks about kind of love that the Apostle Paul was trying to teach the people of Corinth. The conference focused on the truth that the love of family is a love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Among the wonderful things God has created, the family is truly God’s masterpiece as it allows one to experience true and unconditional love, which is the same kind of love that God has for man.


The participants at the conference agreed that young adults of today are too focused on themselves. Too much emphasis is given to their wants, and needs as individuals, and on their accomplishments. This results in a distorted view of the “self” as privileged or entitled. The message of the conference to the SFCs, through the talks and testimonies, was to go back to the basic teaching of the Church: to love their family beyond measure and to find their way back to their first love, their families.


All persons need to love God’s masterpiece, the family, despite imperfections, before one can truly answer one’s vocation, which is to give love, a love that can conquer all. The conference was a renewed call for everyone, to love one’s family more, a reminder that the family is the primary source of hope, strength, stability and foundation.
