God Talk: History
Ephesians 4.29 (CEB)
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
We begin a series this week moving through the book of Psalms. This book offers us a snapshot of life, filled with highs and lows and, of course, everything in between. The Psalms helps give voice and language to our faith. The three most common forms of Psalms are the 1) hymn: offering praise to God and acknowledging all that God has done 2) lament: expressing regret, annoyance, or disappoint in what we feel when God doesn’t live up to our expectations, and 3) thanksgiving: giving God
appreciation for goodness and kindness, expressed and accepted.
Giving language to faith is a life-long endeavor. Thankfully we have some guidance in how we might do that authentically. Please join us this Sunday through the end of July, as we find ways to express our faith. Being sincere is both the joy and the
Grace and peace,
