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.



David’s Dominion – 1 Samuel 17:45-47

David’s Dominion – 1 Samuel 17:45-47 – Dominion: David never slayed a giant on his own. We are a people called to live in Dominion. There is a distinct difference between Dominion and control. It is God’s desire to establish you beyond the margins of your ability to control.


In this four part podcast Pastor Adam brings the best of the 2017 Giant Series to Forest Home for a concentrated look at what it takes to reframe your values and move from a control based life to one of dominion.

The Anointed Servant – 1 Samuel 16:14-23

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. Cultivating God’s Spirit in your life: Like oil and water, God’s Spirit and an evil spirit cannot occupy the same space. The Spirit of God drives away evil. Whatever spirit you choose to be in agreement with will take dominion over your life.

The Giant Series: Samuel Anoints David (Time to Move On)

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.

The Giant Series: Saul has a timing issue

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 message, we look at Saul’s attempt to please and appease God by an act that turns out to be disobedient and in the end ultimately rips the kingdom from Saul’s hand. How are you doing with God’s timing?

The Giant Series: Looking For Donkeys

Israel was looking for a king and found their man. Unfortunately it was not God’s man. Nonetheless, God’s grace blessed Israel despite their decision. Also in this talk, we look at how God cares for us while we might feel we are wasting our time in life “looking for donkeys”.

The Giant Series: Israel Ask For A King

God has a funny habit of giving us what we want. This is especially true when what we want goes against what is best for us. Israel wanted a king rather then walking the more liberating faith journey of only serving God. They paid a price for this in the end. In this sermon I talk about being all you are called to be and the temptation to take the easy way out.
