Pentecost 20c - Psalm 111

 Psalm 111
Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with a good bit of my heart for my long time partner in ministry Janelle Miller, though I won’t make a big deal about her in the company of the upright, even though the upright at Calvary know she’s a big deal. It might seem odd that I would talk about a person when the psalm’s focus is on the Lord but then the Lord is not known except through people and while Calvary’s Director of Youth and Family doesn’t do anything on her own she blessed the Heinze family on Sunday afternoon by organizing an event called Taste Worship. One of the components of connecting in more meaningful ways with members of your family is by affirming them but, and here’s the real point of all this, when you affirm something good in another you are recognizing God’s gift in them which means you are praising the Lord which is what worship is all about. So worship the Lord today by affirming the people with whom you live and do life. Praise the Lord!
