New series: Psalms for the Seasons of Life
Our series of services for the Autumn term focuses on the Psalms.
The book of Psalms in the Old Testament is the songbook of the Bible, and the writers wrote songs that express the full range of human emotions towards God: from joy and praise to prayers for help and rescue; expressions of faith amid fear, as well as anguish and lament amid doubt and pain.
Our series, which we’re calling ‘Psalms for the Seasons of Life’, will explore eight psalms whose poetry is vivid and honest, which makes them a wonderful resource for us today, as the different seasons of life that we experience evoke in us the same range of emotions. As we read and sing the psalms today, we are encouraged to express our own emotions with the same honesty before the God who knows and loves us completely.
