It is a long time since a brief 6 month interim at CLC that ended too soon. Reading through the web page and FB posts, I get the impression CLC is doing what it does best: celebrating what it means to be a community of faith with gifted people and staff. Our daughter and family continue to live in Grapevine. Perhaps I'll get to sneak in the back door soon for a visit.
Looking ahead to Sunday: "A whole lot of our sacred Scripture deals with such morally ambivalent stories. Jacob is in, in at least some ways, in the wrong before both God and human beings. But he holds fast to God and demands a blessing anyway. The widow may or may not be asking for something good and just, but she fights all the same. Jesus correctly understands that his audience--including us!--is more likely to need lessons in holding fast to what's good than in knowing what's good in the first place."
What a wonderful celebration of Thanksgiving! Thank You to all who joined us and helped make our Thanksgiving luncheon a wonderful success. Thank You for getting to know our friends from Back On My Feet! I think the smiles in this photo say it all!
Looking forward to the first “Contemporary” church service this Sunday! Very excited to be a part of this!
Merry Christmas from Music Ministry:
CLC Advent Concert 2017
Hello Community! The 2nd Annual Pumpkin Arrival party turned out to be an AWESOME night! We started out with being informed of an hour delay so we made good use of the time and put up the pumpkin patch banner and the concert banner in front of the church, brought some tables to the front for use and put out some food and drinks for all the hard workers we were expecting (I am in favor of feeding the people :). In total, we had about 40 volunteers overall this evening and for that, we are fortunate and truly, very grateful. We had some wonderful fellowship in some truly beautiful weather as volunteers trickled in "early" because they hadn't received the delay message. The kids played ball in the yard, friends caught up and volunteers discussed plans to do even more work in the church, what a blessing! There was pumpkin bread, veggies, snacks and drinks and everyone was invited to eat, drink, and be merry while we patiently waited for the pumpkin truck to arrive. Then our crowd grew after the youth arrived from their group dinner along with some more volunteers and all of the sudden, cheers broke out! A very accomplished big-rig truck driver arrived and pulled into the parking lot, confidently backed up (in the dark), the doors were opened and we began the process of unloading the pumpkin shipment (finally :). When the door opened on the back of the truck, the brave ones volunteered to hop onto the truck to work that particular job. Gratefully the temperature was in the low 70’s. God was watching out for us tonight, I am certain. They started by passing out the boxes of gourds and mini pumpkins down to the out-stretched arms of the eager volunteers. These folks were more than happy to carry them to just right spot in our beautiful pumpkin patch. We started to fill the pallets which turned our normally beautiful green lawn into a wonderful, festive, pumpkin scene! We have stacks of gorgeous pumpkins filling our yard that are larger in quantity and BETTER in quality than last year! I am not sure at what point each person realized that this year, the crop was not only good, it was really, really GREAT. Was it the fellowship that gathered without regard to changing times? Was it the beautiful pumpkins of all colors that were being taken to their very special spot on our lawn? Was it the variety of shapes and sizes of the pumpkins this year compared to last? Was it when we filled more than 50 pallets, 20 more than last year, and then started on the courtyard finally? Was it when we were still unloading after the pumpkin counter clicked past 1600 on the counter? Was it when we felt our backs working harder than we can remember (shout out to farmers for enduring some challenging, physical, work). I truly do not know, but I do know that I personally experienced the Love of God through our work tonight, not just by our group but also by the farmers themselves, the truck drivers, and all who were in any way a part of the creation of our beautiful pumpkin patch this year. I look forward to sharing this Blessing with you and our community in the upcoming weeks! I send sincere thanks to each person that was there tonight, to those that have supported the community and youth outreach effort this year and last, to those that have purchased pumpkins and invited others to visit our patch as well. Blessings to you! In His service, Lasca Weiss

Sermon: Jesus and the Crowd

Yesterday's sermon: "Hosanna to the son of David! they shout. It is a thrilling and dangerous phrase. Jerusalem has so long been subjugated by the great kingdoms of the Gentiles--Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome. Is she now receiving her liberation? Is this the descendent of the great King, the one who will redeem the city and the nation from their long servitude?

The acclaim of the crowd tempts the hero to imagine that he is who they want him to be. To seize the moment. To drink in their love and impose upon it, shape it, push toward a cliff. The city is in turmoil. No one knows who this is. Lead the crowd to your destiny."

clcdallas.org There is nothing like the acclaim of a crowd. It is a good thing to have the praise of a teacher or a mentor. It is a special thing to earn the regard of a parent. It is a gift to be applauded by a...

Sermon: What Are We Doing Here? - Worship

Yesterday's sermon: "Then something startling happens: Jesus weeps. Jesus, the Son of God, the eternal Word, in whom the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, who was before Abraham, the Alpha and Omega through whom all things were made, who holds all of life and every human soul in his hands--weeps. The great power within and beyond all creation whom earth and heaven adore breaks into tears. All the sorrow and suffering of the human condition, the sickness and death and grief, bursts into the moment at Lazarus’s tomb."

Weekly Devotion: Facing the Bad Stuff

Home Devotion on the Great Litany: "For at least forty years our prayers didn't take much account of the possibility of drought and famine, fire and flood, or an "unprepared and evil death." That's the phrase that stood out to me when I first heard the Great Litany and it's stayed with me ever since. Like it or not, all this stuff is real. It never stopped happening, it happens now, and we should pray about it together."

Sermon: What Are We Doing Here? Week 5 - Ministry

Sermon: "Jesus spits into the dirt and makes mud and touches it to the man’s eyes. That is how it goes sometimes. You have to be face to face. I think of those moments where I have laid my hands on the head of someone kneeling for absolution on Maundy Thursday. Of the many hundreds of foreheads I have marked with ash on Ash Wednesday. Of the times I have held someone’s hands and prayed with them. I am not an especially demonstrative, touchy-feely person but those moments are some of the most powerful in my ministry."
