On January 8, 2018, Posted by , In CCC News, With Comments Off on Monday Move – What’s Next?

SHIFT (v) – move or cause to move from one place to another… SHIFT (n) – a slight change in position, direction, or tendency… By either definition it seems safe to say that life sometimes involves a shift.  To say it another way, life is full of transition and change…

Monday Move – RandomING

Every one of us has an insatiable desire for the world to make sense.  It’s why we say things like, “Everything happens for a reason” or “If it’s meant to be, it will be.” Statements like these reveal the desire to make sense out of things.  We just don’t like…

Monday Move – DeclarING

The word “declaring” means “to say something in an emphatic manner; to formally announce the beginning of something; to pronounce or assert a person or thing to be something specified.”  The “declaring” around the story of the first Christmas connects with each of these descriptors. The privilege of declaring the…

Monday Move – PreparING

On December 11, 2017, Posted by , In CCC News, With Comments Off on Monday Move – PreparING

There are a lot of things we anticipate about the Christmas season.  Those things we anticipate influence what and how we prepare for the Christmas season.  If we anticipate spending time with family, we prepare to spend time with friends and family.  We get the house ready for out-of-town family…

Monday Move – AnticipatING

The Christmas season can be full of anticipation!  We anticipate Christmas lights, Christmas trees, Christmas movies, Christmas music, the joy of giving gifts (but not the “joy” of shopping), time off work, time with friends and family (but not “too much” time). But sometimes once the wait is over we…

Monday Move – Do Not Forget!

Have you ever noticed that it’s easy to take things for granted when we get used to them?  Not only do we take them for granted, but we also tend to become less thankful for them because we have come to expect them.  And it seems we are rarely thankful…

Monday Move – Spend!!!

Money & Church just don’t mix – at least that’s the prevailing thought in the minds of many people.  But what if money & church do mix because God’s design factors into both?  Money & stuff compete with God for the human heart like practically nothing else.  The church is…

Have you ever been at a picnic or cookout, dropped a piece of food, only to notice in a very short time, it’s completely covered by ants?  Don’t you wonder where they came from?  Ants are intriguing insects in many ways.   There are an estimated 12,000 species and they can…

Monday Move – Give?

In the 1990’s, reality TV became inundated with shows about people who bought homes and renovated them to sell them for a profit.  This practice is called “house flipping.”  Sometimes these homes are in rundown conditions that need a little rehab – which is sometimes the financial conditions in which…

Monday Move – In The Zone

When an athlete is “in the zone” everything is clicking right.  The basket seems impossible to miss.  The bat always hits the ball.  The golf ball always finds the hole.  It’s an amazing thing to experience.  But “the zone” isn’t just found in the realm of athletics. There are times…
