The Psalms – prayers for today’s church

An ecumenical course for discussion groups in five sessions written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell- ideal for Lent.

The ancient poems we call Psalms are over 2000 years old. They were written in very different times from our own when humans could travel at the speed of a camel – not at the speed of sound. But these songs have stood the test of time for they address many of the problems we still face: violence, injustice, anger – and bewilderment. Why do the wicked prosper? Where is God when we suffer? In this 5-session course, Bishop Stephen Cottrell – a prolific and popular author – reflects on the psalms in general (and five psalms in particular). He invites us to join him as he does so.

Five Sessions:

March 14th    

Session One         Know that the Lord is God           (Psalm 100)

March 21st

Session Two         Out of the depths have I cried        (Psalm 130)

March 28th

Session Three        How long, O Lord?  (Psalm 13)

April 4th

Session Four         You spread a table before me  (Psalm 23)

April 11th

Session Five          Unless the Lord builds the house …  (Psalm 127)
