Midweek Worship: The Feast of the Lord/At the Table

Come on here where the table is spread
And the feast of the Lord is going on...

I heard this one on the radio a couple of weeks ago and went looking for a video. Boy, was I surprised to find this live performance by Richard Smallwood and the Smallwood Singers (as they were called back then) where they sang the song twice, first the old way, then with that extra special Richard Smallwood spin on it.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and there will be a lot of feasting going on, even in these tough economic times.

Those who have will be extra thankful for the blessings of the Lord, I'm sure.

Many, more than we've seen in a long time, will not have. Charities across the country are reporting greater needs than they have resources to meet this year.

So let us be thankful for the blessings we have and let's take a moment to do two things.

First, let us pray for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Second, and sometimes as important, if not more, let us give out of our blessings to help someone else, whether it's a donation of food or money, time to serve others, an invitation to dine, or whatever God places on your heart.

Let me throw in one more thing. No matter what circumstances you find yourself in this holiday season, remember that everything we need is "at the table". The invitation has already been extended. All we have to do is sit down at the feast of the Lord and eat up!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Peace & Blessings,
