Scripture Study: The Psalms, Part I

Wednesday Evenings, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Central Time
Meeting on Zoom
Part II, beginning October 4

Seven Sessions, Fall 2023
(Part II will be the focus for Lent 2024)

The Psalms are the prayers of the Jewish people, going back to King David. They were the prayers that Jesus learned, and they are our prayers today too. We pray them together as Church, and we each find unique, personal meaning in them.

In the fall session, using the resources of the Little Rock Scripture Study, we will focus on the psalms in the categories of descriptive praise, trust/confidence, and the wisdom psalms.  The Lenten series will cover the royal psalms, psalms of lament, and psalms of declarative praise.

Mary Jo Polak, OSB will facilitate the seven sessions of Part I, beginning October 4, 2023.  During the Wednesday evening gatherings, participants will share questions and insights, watch a video, and take time to pray the psalms and experience how they can be part of daily prayer through the Liturgy of the Hours.

The Word of God is Alive and Active!

What do the Scriptures mean for my life? How can something written 2000 years ago speak to me today? What can these strange stories, with old-fashioned examples, tell me about how I should live?  The answer is that we believe that the Holy Spirit is alive and well, and speaks to us through the Bible as we can hear.  “The Word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:22).”  In our sharing groups, we may learn about the times and places of the Bible, but more importantly, we share and pray about how these words can shape our lives today.
