For three weeks, starting June 30, we will be reading from the book of Psalms. Like the prayers we offer during the course of our own lives, they are varied and represent so much of human experience.
See below for the details of these worship services, and the ones to follow.
On June 30th, we will be looking at Psalms 8 and 145, Psalms of praise that express those moments of joy when we find ourselves fully enjoying the presence of God and the beauty of God’s world.
July 7th we will be looking at Psalms of Lament that orient us to God even as the world falls apart. Psalms for this day include 42, 51, 86 and 137. The sermon title is How Long Oh Lord, How Long?
July 14th we will be paying attention to Psalms that Walter Bruegemann calls psalms of new-orientation. These orient us to God in those times when we have found that we have come through trouble, to a new understanding of the world around us. Psalms for this week will include 30, 40 and 139.
