The Joy of Thanksgiving. By Dr. Chuck Pedersen, Pastor

Psalm 98: 1-6Psalm 100 (NIV )

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.

Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4  Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;  his faithfulness continues through all generations.
