“The Lord is my shepherd…”; “As a deer longs for flowing streams…”; “Create in me a clean heart, O God…”; “How lovely is your dwelling place…”; “I lift up my eyes to the hills…”; “O Lord, you have searched me and known me…”
Some of the most beloved and well-known words of scripture come from the book of the Bible known as Psalms. The 150 poetic prayers express a range of feelings, questions, pleas, and affirmations. They are songs for which we no longer have the original music. And the writers of the psalms used some identifiable literary strategies when crafting their lyrics.
To learn how the psalm-writers gave form and emphasis to their sentiments, and to have fun writing one or two psalms of your own, come to the workshop co-taught by April Herron and Lorrie Tom on Wednesday, November 15, at 7:00 p.m. in the Aldersgate Room as RHUMC. The season of thanksgiving is a good time to learn new ways to pray!
