Thought for the Day, September 21, 2020

Posted by Traci Smith on

Thought of the Day: This week — Psalm 145. This Psalm is so rich and so full of gems. I won’t be excerpting the entire Psalm this week, but we will spend the whole week on it. I hope that this “bite sized” approach will help you reflect on this great Psalm.
1 I will extol you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
2 Every day I will bless you,
and praise your name forever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
his greatness is unsearchable.

What does it mean to bless God every day? What routines do you have that allow you to see God each and every single day?
Featured Announcements:
● Wednesday: Join Keith Baumann and friends for a free outdoor concert of instrumental bluegrass, country and jazz music sponsored by the Chicago Federation of Musicians on Wednesday, September 23rd at 6:00pm. The program will include a quartet of fine musicians including Grammy-nominated banjo player and leader of the Special Consensus, Greg Cahill, guitarist Rob Curtis from the world-famous Chicago Cubs Dixieland band, bass player extraordinaire Dan Kristan, and EPC’s own Keith Baumann on mandolin and dobro. This will be a fun all-ages program featuring some really great American roots and jazz music. The show will be held on the lawn at Elmhurst Presbyterian Church and social distancing guidelines will of course be followed. (Stay after the concert for popsicles and prayer!)
● Please join us on Sunday for our Zoom coffee hour at 11:30 — we’ll gather as a whole group for a few minutes, go into smaller “breakout” rooms and then come back together for a closing prayer. Hope to see you there.
