“A Lifetime of Thanks” online worship for November 21, 2021

Join in worship and communion with the church family! We often refer to this special time together as concentrated loving. Viewers tune in Saturdays or Sundays to hear the pre-recorded service.

This week we focus on “A Lifetime of Thanks” as we read the way the writer of 2 Samuel 23:1-7 reminisced on the life of David. Although many disagree with more than a few things that David did, practiced and apparently believed.. and clearly the writes of the Bible disagreed with a lot of David’s acts (see 2 Samuel 11 or chapter 24). But he was remembered as a psalmist, a praiser and a thanksgiver. We spend more time with his psalms than we do with the whole rest of his story. What a statement about a flawed life that it would be remembered most for its joy and gratitude.
