On November 28, 2016, Posted by , In CCC News, With Comments Off on Monday Move – Happy People

Over the last 5 weeks, we’ve been engaged in the What Makes You Happy series at CCC.  One statement we’ve referred to throughout the series is, “Happy people are at peace with God, others, and themselves.”  We don’t always get these right because we are, well, flawed people – but…

Have you ever struggled with the idea of fairness?  There are a lot of things in life that aren’t fair, but just because they aren’t fair doesn’t make them any less true.  This tension between what if fair (or not) and true is sometime we all face. One specific area…

  “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!”  Have you ever said that – or maybe something like that?  Maybe it’s “I don’t know what I was thinking…” or “If I could do it over again, I would do it differently…” We’ve all made decisions that we would undo…

Happy wife, happy life?  Whether you are married or not, you may have heard that “marriage success axiom?  In some ways, it kind of gives the wife a bad rap, don’t you think?  If it’s an axiom married people believe, that belief influences the decisions married people make and the…

What makes you happy?  Something came to mind, didn’t it?  Something always comes to mind because we all want to be happy and we all think there is something that will make us happy.  So, we spend a lot of time pursuing happiness in things only to find that “consumptive…

Monday Move – No Change

Change – a six-letter word that is often perceived as a four-letter word.  In general, people don’t resist the idea of change as much as they resist what change requires of them.  We recognize that change is inevitable and things are continually changing all around us, but we pushback when…

Essential means “absolutely necessary; extremely important.”  It’s also the focal word for yesterday’s message at CCC (which you can download here if you would like).  It was the focal word because there are things in life that are essential – absolutely necessary and extremely important. While that seems like a…

If there are two types of people in the world, which type would you be?  It would probably be good to clarify the two types: people who set & pursue goal and people who don’t set goals (or don’t pursue them if they set them). A very simple definition of…

Getting Unstuck

On October 10, 2016, Posted by , In CCC News, With Comments Off on Getting Unstuck

As a church we have made a lot of progress in moving from where we are to where God desires us to be.  One of the primary reasons for this is because we have become healthier – in relationship with one another and as an organization as a whole. We…

Monday Move – Go Ordinary

On October 2, 2016, Posted by , In CCC News, With Comments Off on Monday Move – Go Ordinary

In 1991, musician Joe Walsh (http://www.joewalsh.com/about) released a song titled, “Ordinary Average Guy” in which he describes the activities of life as average.  He doesn’t say whether or not this is either good or bad but at one point he does use the word “boring.” Feeling (being) ordinary can sometimes…
