Do you ever feel rushed? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Scattered? Misunderstood? Mistreated? Disconnected from God and/or the people around you?
If any of this sounds like you, the Psalms might be a very helpful resource for you.
This week we continue with our focus on the Psalms. The Psalms are prayers (often sung) to God. They offer us examples of how to open up and honestly share the deep feelings that we have with God. They also teach us more about who God is, and who we are.
This week we will focus on the “Nature Psalms,” or the specific treatment of nature and creation in some of the Psalms.
We will try to get at these primary questions:
- Why do these Psalms focus on nature?
- What does this focus on nature tell us about God?
- How can we interact with nature in ways that will open us up to God and life?
The specific Psalm we will look at will be Psalm 65.
I look forward to worshiping with you this weekend.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEATHER – WILL THE CHURCH CANCEL WORSHIP?
Speaking of nature, it looks like we are in for more winter weather this weekend. As of now, I am planning to hike to church and worship with anyone who can safely make it. I plan to be here on Saturday as well as for both services on Sunday morning. Depending on the weather, we may or may not have musicians. We may or may not have a nursery or children’s ministry or adult Sunday School. You can check the church website or your email for updated information.
If there are just a few of us who can make it to worship, the services will probably be shortened
