Best Christmas Ever
Chasing The Wind
The Ultimate Christmas (Part 1)
Ecclesiastes 2:1-11 • December 9, 2018 • Michael McCracken
In an age where Christmas comes with the greatest of expectations, we can find ourselves thrust into a situation where it has to be the best or bust. Solomon, in all of his wisdom, is going to come along and free us from the bonds of an idealized Christmas. God has good for you to experience this season and there is no need for the ultimate Christmas.
The Ultimate Christmas (Part 2)
Ecclesiastes 2:12-17 • December 16, 2018 • Jon Paul Dennison
Wisdom is a good thing, even a great thing. But when Solomon turns to consider wisdom in his pursuit for ultimate meaning, it fails the test just like indulgence did before. But a thousand years later, we learn through the magi that to truly be wise men, we must begin by fearing God and end our pursuit in Christ.
The Ultimate Christmas (Part 3)
Ecclesiastes 2:18-26 • December 23, 2018 • Michael McCracken
Are you the gift, or are you the recipient of the gift? There is grace when God allows us to get to the end of ourselves such that we would gladly trade any inane glory for real, powerful grace. In this grace we have the ability to reclaim the joy that comes from the hand of God.
