Good day Fellow Pilgrims of Black Creek and beyond, 


This morning I woke up to the tune of 'Crown Him with Many Crowns' 

....In my head. 

I don't think I have heard that hymn for years.....

But there it was, 

in all the glory and majesty of Christ. 

Check out Chris Tomlin in concert singing some of this hymn


Last night I was in a small group 

and as we unpacked a Psalm some of the words that have been put to music 'POPPED out'....  

and I 'heard' them differently than just reading scripture.


What is this amazing connection to our King?

 Music and words - connecting my emotions, mind, and... tear ducts

to a glorious picture or feeling of 

Awe and Thankfulness 

for Christ's work and saving life. 


Worship - 

in a home group

around a campfire

in times of celebration     and grief.

Sunday mornings      with friends

or sometimes those I don't know


I think it is a gift of community and connectedness from God

for my soul

And I sometimes I miss it 

without knowing I miss it. 



1  Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! 

2  Serve the LORD with gladness!     

Come into his presence with singing!
3  Know that the LORD, he is God!     

It is he who made us, and we are his;     

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4  Enter his gates with thanksgiving,     

and his courts with praise!     

Give thanks to him; bless his name!
5  For the LORD is good;     

his steadfast love endures forever,     

and his faithfulness to all generations.


This week worship our king. 

It helps make big things small

and little things significant.


 Pray too for those in your circle of care.

Ask God to intervene, to bring hope, and to establish new paradigms.
