The Holy Things Vodcast: Episode 2 Scary Giants. In this episode we talk about how David led a life of dominion rather than one of control. We also look at how to defeat the giants in our lives. Adam blows the shofar and Joe keeps in real with his Cranberries impersonations from the 90s.
The Anointed Servant – 1 Samuel 16:14-23 – Now the Spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord tormented him.

Whatever spirit you choose to be in agreement with will take dominion over your life.
Samuel Anoints David: Time to Move On 1 Samuel 16:1-13
God has a plan for us, but we often hold on to the past. Join Pastor Adam speak about David’s own struggles to step into God’s vision for his kingly reign, and learn about stepping past our specters of mourning and the sacrifices that are often required.
God’s timing can be one of the biggest giants that we face. Many of us find it hard to wait without taking control of our lives rather than being patient for God to act.

In this sermon I talk about being all you are called to be and the temptation to take the easy way out.
