Santa Paula Church of Christ – Thanksgiving
1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, ... 2 Give thanks to the God of gods... 3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. Psalm 136::1-3.
Psalm 136 tells us to whom and what we should thankful for. What I like about this Psalm is that it reads as a vignette and refrain. The vignette is the first part of the Psalm: “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.” The refrain is the second part: “His love endures forever.” This vignette, refrain is a reminder of how we could be thankful to GOD. So, take a moment to read Psalm 136. Begin each verse with the vignette “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,” and end it with the refrain “his love endures forever. Maybe this exchange may brighten your day and others around you.
My prayer is that by reading Psalm 136 to yourself and maybe even to others, it will remind you what to be thankful for: Our families, our jobs, our lives, the church given to us through Jesus Christ and yes, the first “Thanksgiving,” in the United States of America. We have a lot to be thankful for!
If your heart is in a festive mood of giving thanks to God through his son Jesus, then come and visit us. We are located at 276 W. Santa Paula Street, (across from the cemetery). Also, we are hoping that you, your family and friends will be our honored guests this Sunday, Dec. 1 at 10:45 AM. It is our annual “Friends Day” (dia de amigos). It is a bilingual service which I will be preaching in both Spanish and in English. A “Turkey theme” luncheon will immediately follow the service. For early birds (not turkey’s, ha ha), our classes begin at 9:45 AM.
Also, on Dec. 15, 2019 from 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM, we are also hosting a free movie night & Q&A “Heavenly Deposit” with director, co-producer and actor George Vincent. The movie is here at our church and everything is free including snacks. Donations are welcomed and will go to the Santa Paula emergency shelter for the homeless.
God Bless you,
Dr. Robert Perez
