Gratituesday – Celebration

Yesterday in church, we spent the morning celebrating how faithful God has been to our church over its 131 year history. One man whose mother first brought him to this church in 1925 spoke and told of God’s faithfulness throughout the years.

We celebrated that our church is now debt free, no mortgage at all after 17 years and several massive building projects. God has been faithful and has provided more than we could imagine. Now we get to look forward to what God is going to do with all of the money we will have to do more ministry with every month. It’s breathtaking.

The Bible is full of stories of celebration and God’s call to celebrate His mighty works. He wants us to remember His faithfulness. So we celebrated. Big Time. We had the privilege of being joined by Huntley Brown, an amazing pianist. No words are adequate. He played How Great Thou Art and we got to sing with him. While we could. But eventually the power and majesty of our Lord was just too much. There were very few dry eyes as we worshipped Him. The great I Am. The One who made us in His image. He gave humans the ability to compose these amazing hymns and the incredible gift of someone able to create music like we heard that day.

Now I sit here. Still able to be swept up in the memory of that moment beyond words. The moment when we weren’t worshipping just with our minds or hearts, but our very spirits. And I wonder. If we are created in God’s image and we are able to make music like this, what must God’s music sound like?
