Now if you would please take your copies of God’s Word and turn with me to Psalm 136. We read it together earlier responsively; we’ll not read it again now, but if you would open your Bibles to Psalm 136. In the church Bibles you’ll find that on page 520. Psalm 136.

Psalm 103 “Give Thanks”
Dr. William Wymond
[Prayer: Mr. James Elkin]
Our Father, we know ourselves to be the most blessed people in the world. We know, too, that the God of heaven is our Redeemer. Our blessing from your hand astounds us. We thank You that the Creator of all the universe has loved us. We are startled. We know...

“Giving Thanks in Hard Places”
Mr. Brad Mercer

Since we're worshiping together on Thanksgiving morning, it seems appropriate that we think for a few moments about the distinctive nature of Christian thanksgiving. We know friends who perhaps have no saving faith in Jesus Christ that we might characterize as thankful...
Thanksgiving 1999 1 Thessalonians 5:18 The Grateful Heart Dr. Derek Thomas

Thanksgiving 1997 Psalm 107
Dr. Ligon Duncan
Before we turn to the Scriptures, I'd like to turn your attention to your order of service, and just point out, under the record of Thanksgiving as viewed by a citizen, exactly 150 years ago this Thanksgiving, John Munn, who was a native of Connecticut, recorded in his journal his experience of the first Thanksgiving in Canton, MS. If...
