Psalms for the Summer

IMG_0670

Our sermon series ‘Psalms for the Summer’ looked at a different Psalm each Sunday morning throughout June, July and August. The fourth century Christian leader Athanasius said that while most of Scripture speaks to us, the Psalms speak for us. Eugene Peterson says: ‘The psalms show us the shape of our souls and the curve of our sin, realities deep within us, hidden and obscured, for which we need focus and names’. Psalms are both poetry and prayer and they encourage us to come before God honestly, whether lamenting or with thanksgiving. They are a great way of overcoming emotional constipation and to find authentic expression in our prayers.

Talks from the series are available on our Sermons page.
