Song of Faith

Song of Faith

The table has become the centerpiece of our Thanksgiving celebration, and for good reason. Not only does the table (and the food on it) represent God’s provision, but scientists have discovered that the human mind attaches significant memories to the sense of smell and taste. As you eat, you are literally rehearsing memories associated with those tastes and smells. Remembering God’s faithfulness in the past is an antidote to fear of the future and helps build our faith. Join us for the final message in the Psalms of Thanksgiving series where we will consider Psalm 34 as we taste and see that the Lord is good.

Giving thanks helps us overcome fear and live by faith
