Coordinators: Millie Snyder and Wilma Winkels
Teacher: Tam Velderman
Green Room just inside Entrance D
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1:1).
“Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 150:6).
Those are the first and the last verses of the Book of Psalms, and in between are words of worship and praise, of repentance, and of thankfulness that portray the span of attitude and emotion that the various authors, David, Solomon, Moses, and others, wanted to convey through the words of these much-loved and often-memorized poems divided into five sections. We’ll take a look at selected psalms, and also at the songs we now sing that encompass their words. From Psalm 1 – Psalter Hymnal #1 (1912) that we might have learned in our early elementary days, to Psalm 23 – “Gentle Shepherd” by Bill and Gloria Gaither (1974), we’ll open our Bibles and also the hymnals as we review and learn anew the familiar words. Join us this fall for Psalms & Songs ~ Petitions & Praise.
