Among the lessons for Thanksgiving, I am grateful for Psalm 100 and how it reminds me of the faithful God worthy of thanks and praise. I am also thankful for serving a church that still upholds the tradition of worshiping to better prepare our hearts for the joy and feasting we’ll share tomorrow.
As we consider the lessons for Christ the King, we bump into a Canticle in lieu of a Psalm. Zechariah’s song encourages to be thankful for God’s blessings in advance of our receiving them, as well as how to be more watchful for the tastes of Christ’s goodness all around us, even before he returns to consummate his reign on earth as it is in heaven.
Playing a bit of catch up after a busy run from All Saints into Diocesan Convention to our our Election Day Spaghetti Dinner at the church. So here’s two sermons (plus links to the readings) for your spiritual edification. Blessings!
Prayer is still on the table, as Jesus only gets thanked 10% of the time. Faithful, humble prayer can heal us inside and out, but if we don’t show gratitude, just what kind of recipient of God’s good gifts are we?
