I hope you're all having a good summer. Our family recently returned from vacation and so we've been gone for two weekends. We enjoyed our time away but we're looking forward to being with you this Sunday (July 19th) in worship together.
This Sunday we kick off a new sermon series called, By Streams of Living Water -- A Six-Part Worship Series on the Psalms. Here is a brief description and series outline:
For the most profound and enduring prayers of all time, both Christians and Jews look to the Psalms. These timeless writings become our words when we have none. With vivid word pictures that capture our imagination, and in the beautiful artistry of the language, we discover that the Psalms are empowering for faith as we sing and pray them in devotion to God. Join us in this soulful journey through the book of Psalms.
1. Soul Thirst
2. Duty & Delight
3. Clean Hearts
4. Tears of Lament
5. Rains of Justice
6. Giving Thanks
And here is a summary of the first message, Soul Thirst.
The book of Psalms may be a collection of ancient prayers and hymns, but it is incredibly relevant for the church today. First and foremost, the Psalms express the human longing for God and the confidence born from our experience of him. Like a tree planted by streams of living water, so is the person that delights in the Lord and finds their life in him. In the first message of the series, we will look at the purpose of the Psalms, and how Jesus saw himself as the water for which our souls truly thirst.
I hope you will join us for this encouraging worship series through the Psalms.
See you on Sunday!
