This is a phrase I have used many times over the years. I love to hear people talking and laughing anytime at church. I love to hear it before, during and after Sunday services! I love to hear it at cookouts, choir practice and work days. But I especially love to hear it during our youth programs! This last Wednesday evening was the very first night of our new Faith 180 Youth Ministry. By the time the kids were to arrive several of us were worn out with all the prep work! But when the noise started, the loudness kicked in, and kids were heading in all directions we could feel that all the work was well worth the effort! If you would like to watch God work in a community, come watch our Faith 180 youth. It is exciting to see them grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Some of them grew a foot over this last summer! My mother used to say kids are growing faster and taller every year. I can see what she was talking about! Psalm 100 A psalm. For giving grateful praise. 1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. 2 Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. 3 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. 5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
