“Acclaim YHWH with joy, all the earth! Serve YHWH with gladness! Enter into God’s presence with a joyful song! Know that YHWH is God! YHWH made us, and we belong to the Creator; we are God’s people and the sheep of God’s pasture. Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving and the courts with praise! Give thanks to God! Bless God’s name! For YHWH is good; God’s steadfast love endures forever, and God’s faithfulness to all generations.” - Psalm 100
I have a lot to rejoice about today! Today, Brett and I are celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary! It is a joyous day for us. As I look back on these years together, I rejoice. I rejoice for my relationship with Brett and I rejoice in God’s presence with us throughout the ups and downs of these many years. Praise God for 19 years together!
Also, I rejoice because Briarwood will start live-streaming our in-person worship service this Sunday, August 1st! We will have traditional and contemporary music at our in-person service with a solo singer—we won’t be joining with our voices yet, but we will have the joy of music in church again! All who cannot join with us in the sanctuary will be able to watch the live-streamed service on YouTube (which you can access after the fact as well). I am looking forward to worshipping with you at 10:45 am in-person and to having music in church again!
Psalm 100 is going through my mind today. I invite you to pray this Psalm of praise, too!
Grace and peace, Rev. Sarina
