Psalms course

I would like to thank the encouraging number of friends who continued to support the Psalms Course.

I am immensely grateful for all who helped in various ways, operating the projector, playing the piano, serving refreshments, and setting out and putting away everything that was needed.

As with last year’s course I learnt a great deal in the process of preparing and presenting it. I hope it also brought some blessing to those who attended it.

I feel a strong inner sense of vocation to finish the programme by offering a course on Books 3 and 4 together next year, and a course on Book 5 the following year. Obviously this is subject to many expressions of “God willing”. If you would like me to continue in this way, please let me know.

Psalms Course 2

Songs of the Choir and Prayers of the King

Longing for the Lord

Six sessions in the Barber Rooms on Book 2 of the Psalter (Psalms 42-72)

1 Psalms 42-49            The sons of Korah sing:“God our Refuge and Strength”

2 Psalms 50-51            “Our God comes”: Asaph calls and David repents

3 Psalms 52-59            David recalls his prayers during his early struggles

4 Psalms 60-64            David triumphant (60), then seeking the Lord as he faces Absalom (61-64)

5 Psalms 65-68            Songs of Praise and a great Procession

6 Psalms 69-72            The last days of David and his Prayer for Solomon

In these studies, we shall see David as representing all Israel, and the whole Church today, including each believing individual. David always takes us to his  Greater Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, so may we find the Living Word as we ponder the written Word.
