Praying the Psalms: Images for Psalm 51

If you've been in our sanctuary for Lent, you may have noticed some photos displayed. As part of our Lenten Intergenerational Faith Formation event, we had people choose from a stack of images pictures that they felt helped illustrate different verses from this week's Psalm of focus--Psalm 51. So, instead of music for this week, we will use these images to help us pray. How do these images fit with, clash with, or change/enhance the way you pray and hear this prayer? Which line of the prayer do you most connect with?

Praying the Psalms: Music for Psalm 107

As we continue in the season of Lent, our worship also continues focusing on the Psalms and how they can help teach us what it means to pray, and how to pray. The Psalms, of course, were not originally written to be read, but to be sung--and so, each week I'm posting a couple of sung versions of our Psalm for that Sunday for you to listen to in advance of worship, or during the week following as you continue to try praying this Psalm in your own daily life.

This week's Psalm is Psalm 107. Check out the versions below and take time to reflect on specific reasons you have to thank God for God's activity in your life this week.
