A HOUSE FOR GOD? #2 (See also Advent 4B)
(2 Samuel 7:1-14a)
David planned a house:
no more tentative dwelling
for Israel’s God.

God promised to make
David’s name, house, kingdom, throne
to last forever.

‘Church’ means many things:
building, worship and people,
local and global.

While some still regard
the building as ‘house of God’
God won’t be confined.

Church: no fixed abode,
people loving and living
the holy presence.
