We pray that this greeting will put you in the mood to truly thank God for all of His blessings as you gather together this Thanksgiving season with your family and friends. Jim and Charlotte Davenport, November 2016 _______________ We Gather Together (Anonymous/Unknown - 1597) We gather together to ask the Lordís blessing; He chastens and hastens His will to make known; The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing; Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own. Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine; So from the beginning the fight we were winning; Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine! We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant, And pray that Thou still our Defender will be; Let Thy congregation escape tribulation; Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free! _______________ Deuteronomy 31:12 - Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the Lord your God, and observe to do all the words of this law. John 11:52 - And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
