One…followed by Two…etc…

Happy FIRST Birthday to Christ Community Church!  We had a great service yesterday morning with the Church family!  We had many interviews with family members who shared how much the church meant to them and where they have gotten involved.  We’ve grown a lot in our first year.  It hasn’t all been easy or fun, but it definitely hasn’t been boring either!  I really look forward to the future for Christ Community Church.  God really has some big things in store for us.

Three Dog Night sings a song called “One”.  You can see the lyrics below.  I guess they are right for the most part; “One” can be the loneliest number.  But in our case “One” is the most exciting number.  It is a number that starts things.  Counting starts with one.  We have just gotten started.  It’s exciting, it’s scary, it’s overwhelming, it’s stressful, it’s unknowing… but it’s all God!  We are a church that is “One” year old because God has allowed “One” to happen.  He has seen us through our first year.  And that would be a sad story if it ended with “One”.  But it doesn’t end with “One”.  It starts with “One”!  And followed by one, is two… then three…   Get the point?

One
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It’s the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know
Yes, it’s the saddest experience you’ll ever know
‘Cause one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
One is the loneliest number, worse than two

It’s just no good anymore since she went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest, number one is the loneliest
Number one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
It’s just no good anymore since she went away
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do

Trivia:
Three Dog Night
Meaning: The name of a rock band from the 1970s
Origin: An associate of the group named it after an Australian Aboriginal phrase for “a cold night”. To keep warm on a cold night, one could dig a hole and sleep in it with a dingo. If the night was chillier still, one could add another dog. A three dog night was an especially cold one.
