Minister's Inspirational Messages

CCC seeks to provide a meaningful opportunity each week for relevant reflection and authentic expression on principles that guide the faithful. Let there be no distance between who we are and how we live; that is the heart of our messages most weeks. Relying on the teaching example of the life of Jesus and the collective wisdom of scripture, poetry, and song, the sermons at CCC are intended to invite the congregation to ruminate on the question of how we all might live and love more deeply in a world so often divided and full of fear. Sermons are always intended to be conversation-starters – less about answers to life’s perplexing and complex questions, and more a means of focusing our thoughts for the week.
