Description: When we read, hear, and pray the Psalms, we stand before texts that struggle mightily between the great promises of God and the sense of our own great need. In the Book of Psalms, the grand promise of the reign of God is constantly colliding with the gritty, historical experience of God's people. The struggle of God's people to make sense of who God is and who they are becomes as volatile as the grinding plates of continents. In response to this struggle, the writers of the Psalms can be heard both praising God's faithfulness and lamenting God's absence; both thanking God and complaining to God; both praying in hope and crying in fear. In so doing, these writers have left behind profound texts of grace and glory unmatched in sacred literature. This study invites us to engage the Psalms at the deepest levels of our hearts, where God's faithfulness confronts the most challenging aspects of our lives, compelling us to ask, "How long, O Lord? Will you hide your face forever?" (Psalm 89), and in the same breath pray, "Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised" (Psalm 48). 10 sessions Sessions:Word of God, Words of PrayerThe Prayer Book of God's PeoplePraying the PsalmsThe Language of the HeartA Geography of the ImaginationA Theology of the ImaginationLament and PraiseGrace and RepentanceLove and WrathHallelujah and AmenMichael Jinkins is an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
