This sermon kick's off CCC's 200th anniversary year of celebration.  It was a mostly musical service of 19th century period music.  There were two videos we played of modern music, but which stories are set in this period.  They are both very powerful and I hope you take a listen or watch them....

Dec 30, 2018 Who’s In & Who’s Left Out

December 30, 2018

In this season of Christmas, we encounter a surprising genealogy of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.  There are four Kings in the line of David who are not included, and four women, plus Mary, who are.  Who is included and who is left out of the story of Jesus' lineage tells us a lot about who the gospel writer understood Jesus to be.  Also, taking the time to read the stories of the four kings and four women, to discover what about them might have gotten them excluded or included in Jesus' genealogy is a great metaphor for slowing down in the Christmas season to reflect on the nature of who Jesus is.  Instead of rushing to the birth story, instead of skipping ahead to the three wise men, we are invited to explore the stories of these eight people who make this genealogy unusual.  Their stories help us to understand the story of Jesus.   Merry Christmas.  Rev. Jason

What happens when the story we have come to know so well, the one we expect and think can't help but end the way it has always ended--changes?
