How can we express the duality of raw pain and rich praise to God? What can the Book of Psalms teach us about how we live out life in relationship with God? How can the Psalms shape our lives as disciples of Jesus?
Join us for our next Bible Day on Wednesday May 3rd as we explore the Book of Psalms and reflect on how it forms our worldview and trains our voice in prayer. We’ll see how our reading of Psalms is enriched by noting the movement of the book as a whole.
The Psalms ignite our imagination and emotions, allowing us to respond to God in different situations and seasons of life. Some celebrate the Lord’s rule in praise, declaring the great things he does for us. Others belong to the rawness of life, those moments when things fall apart. Many also testify to God’s grace in putting us back on track. And they do so in language which is poetic, evocative, and wide-ranging in its use of imagery.
The day will be led by Antony Billington, Head of Theology at LICC, with Neil Hudson, Imagine Project Director at LICC, and will involve a combination of input and discussion. The day will be especially suitable for church leaders and preachers who would like to reflect on how to preach the Psalms, but will also be helpful to others who would value an opportunity to explore how this part of the Bible nurtures Christian identity and discipleship in today’s world.
