Psalms, the Songs of Jesus

2018-Songs of Jesus

In 2015 We began preaching the Psalms each summer at Trinity.  We continue the practice this Sunday, June 6 with Psalm 4.  

The Psalms are the poetry of the passions, the songs of the Jesus. For nearly three thousand years God’s people have used the Psalms as daily devotionals; these one hundred and fifty poetic stories are replete with meaning to shape our loves, voice our cries, mold our desires, and reveal the beauty of Jesus’ work for us. Until the late 19th century memorization of the Psalms was a requirement for monastic life and ministerial ordination. They were a fixed part of the curriculum of the Latin grammar school. Indeed, the phrase “psalteriam dicere” became a synonym for early education. Augustine quoted the Psalms as he died. Jesus did too.

This summer give yourselves permission to stop and meditate on the truth of God through the Songs of Jesus. This summer we will explore the Psalms of David together in gathered worship. Below is our preaching and teaching schedule this summer. If you're traveling, please check out the Order of Worship for the Home to explore these Psalms in your family devotions.

Many of us have read the Psalms but rarely have we meditated upon them. Practicing prayerful meditation on God’s Word will prepare us to respond in faith and repentance during Sunday worship.

Each week this summer we'll provide an Order of Worship of the Home. Try it together as a family. Resist the temptation to rush through these Psalms. Don't worry if you don't get to all the questions.  Go slow.  Let the Psalms soak into your soul and offer comfort. Let them serve to regulate you back to spiritual health in community . These rhythms of celebration and praise, grace and beauty, death and sadness, struggle and hope give us a framework of dealing with these realities in our own lives.
