No collection of poems better captures the human heart than the Book of Psalms. Algerian poet Andre Chouraqui once wrote, "We were born with this book in our very bones." What makes these psalms so extraordinary is their honesty. Kathleen Norris writes that in the Book of Psalms "pretense is stripped away, and even the worst human emotions--jealousy or the desire for vengeance--are not denied or hidden, but brought out into the open and put before God."
This summer, Rev. Gary Robbins uses eight psalms to explore the emotional and theological richness of the psalms and to provide us with a mirror by which to see ourselves. Come join us as we learn what it means to pray the Psalms.
