Psalm 100 - A Psalm of Thanksgiving
1 All the earth shout praises to the Lord!
2 Serve Jehovah with a cheerful heart and sing a song of joy when you come to meet Him face to face.
3 Come knowing in the core of your being that Jehovah is Supreme, THE God, God of ALL. He made us and we belong to Him. We are His tribe, the sheep in His pasture.
4 Give thanks as you enter the gates of His city and sing praises as you gather around His house. Praise Him with your hands lifted as high as you can raise them. Cry, "Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!" as you multiply the honor and glory of His fame.
5 Here's why: Jehovah is the very definition of good. His mercy never runs out and He is faithful to every generation.

Pastor Chris' Paraphrase - Thanksgiving Edition
I'm a pastor, dad, husband, and child of God. I'm broken, but blessed. The cracks are where the Light shines through. My mission is to help people grow closer to God with every breath and step I take. I gave my life to Christ at an early age and have grown closer through the years, spurred on by the study of the Bible, my church family, and the Chrysalis and Walk to Emmaus Communities. I accepted the call to full -time ministry as a pastor in 1999 and have served 4 different churches in Georgia. Music, preaching, and teaching are the heart of my ministry. Outside of the pulpit, I enjoy many hobbies that help me blow off steam. These include martial arts, woodworking, blacksmithing, gardening, cooking, and being creative. I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none. My philosophy is use what you have, do it yourself if you can, learn something in the process, and have lots of fun. This blog is a place to share it all with you.
