Summer in the Psalms


This summer at St. Andrew’s Park Circle we will be walking through parts of the Old Testament book of Psalms. All through the history of God’s people, this book of songs and poetry has played a central part in worship. One commentator described this book by saying “The Psalms are kingdom life overlayed with human experience.” Our hope is that as a church we find encouragement, challenge, blessing, and conviction as we interact with this beautiful book.

For you personally the Psalms often can hold a devotional feel. Christians from as far back as Jesus’s time have been praying the Psalms and have worked their poetic imagery into their daily life. Our own Anglican roots utilize the Psalms in both corporate worship and personal devotion. We invite you this summer to weave the Psalms into your daily prayers. Below you’ll find a table that can help you read the entire book of Psalms in one month or read the morning selections in one month and the evening selections the next if you would like a slower pace.

Will you join us this summer as we take a deep dive into the songbook of the Old Testament?
