    Sacred Spaces, Holy Ground: or "Welcome to church, Church!"

    Sacred Spaces, Holy Ground: or "Welcome to church, Church!"

    We're back together in the building, after 10 months of online church!  To celebrate, Chris uses the story of Solomon dedicating the Temple to reflect on the idea of sacred spaces and holy ground.  What makes a place sacred?  What makes the ground holy?  And does our humble little church building qualify?

    It sure is good to be back together!

    Responding to the King's Mercy (2 Samuel 19:9-40)

    Responding to the King's Mercy (2 Samuel 19:9-40)

    The King is returning to his throne!  In a reverse of the processional he had taken in chapters 15-17, David will once again encounter several people he had met earlier, in a completely different set of circumstances.  How will David respond to these men in this new context?  And more importantly for us: how will they respond to the King's return to glory?  How these men respond to the king may be instructive for how we too can respond to our King's mercy.

    Plus: will the two year old live to tell the tale of her encounter with the dinosaur??  Will Abe live to tell the tale of his encounter with doppelganger Chris Lantz??\

    Absalom, Part VI: The King Who Grieves for His Rebellious Child (2 Samuel 17:24-19:8)

    Absalom, Part VI: The King Who Grieves for His Rebellious Child (2 Samuel 17:24-19:8)

    The battle between David and Absalom will conclude when the rebellious son meets his fateful end.  David's emotional response is a devastating reflection of how our King responds to lost rebels as well.

    Stay tuned for an extra large blooper segment, because you CCBC'ers are hilarious.

    Absalom Part V: Is it Wisdom? Or Foolishness? (2 Samuel 16:15-17:23)

    Absalom Part V: Is it Wisdom? Or Foolishness? (2 Samuel 16:15-17:23)

    Absalom has to choose between the advice of Ahithophel, or the advice of Hushai.  One is wisdom, and the other is foolishness; one would lead to victory, one to a crushing downfall.  Wisdom can be tough to discern for us as well.  Which piece of wisdom will Absalom choose: human wisdom, or God's will?  Which wisdom will we pursue: human wisdom, or the upside-down "foolishness" of the Kingdom of God?  Everything depends on our answer.

    Also features an adorable sing-along, a confession from a wise church leader, and a shocking revelation from the pages of Scripture for the Ford family!

    Absalom Part IV: Humility & Loyalty in the King’s Procession [Part 2] (2 Samuel 15:13-16:14)

    Absalom Part IV: Humility & Loyalty in the King’s Procession [Part 2] (2 Samuel 15:13-16:14)

    Last week we discussed David's long, sad processional out from Jerusalem towards the borders of Israel, showing kindness and humility and trust in God's will along the way.  Today we connect David's journey to Jesus, Who took a reverse long, sad procession towards Jerusalem.  Jesus' journey is beautiful and powerful enough to change outsiders to insiders, as He marches towards the difficult will of His Father.

    Also, since this is a shorter sermon, and because CCBC is full of hilarious people, we've added some extra bonus material, including a communion meditation and portion of a song that both connect with the sermon, a Scripture reading from a special young lady, Chris getting a whistle blown on him for preaching too long, and Abe making a very hilarious PG-13 confession!

    Absalom Part IV: Humility & Loyalty in the King’s Procession (2 Samuel 15:13-16:14)

    Absalom Part IV: Humility & Loyalty in the King’s Procession (2 Samuel 15:13-16:14)

    Absalom's rebellion is in full swing, and King David must flee.  But his royal procession away from Jerusalem gives him many opportunities to meet various people with varying degrees of loyalty, and to formulate a plan for reinstatement.  Along the way, he will learn (and hopefully we will learn) valuable lessons on humility, faith, and submission.

    And it's such a long journey, it makes for a long sermon... will Chris reach the end?!
