Summer 2022 Women’s Bible Study – “Praying the Psalms with Jesus”
June 29 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:15 am on Wednesday, repeating until July 27, 2022
Women are invited to a special summer Bible study focusing on “Praying the Psalms with Jesus.” Our study will begin Wednesday, June 8th, at 10:15 am in the sanctuary following morning prayer (Morning Prayer meets at 9 am in the sanctuary and we encourage you to come early to participate). Each lesson will stand alone, so please join us as you’re able. Please contact Rachel Vendsel (email@example.com) with any questions.
A word from Rachel Vendsel about this study:
John Calvin called the book of Psalms “an anatomy of all the parts of the soul,” and said that the psalms act like a mirror reflecting back our hearts. He goes on to describe the way the Holy Spirit gives us language to describe our hearts before God: “… all the griefs, sorrows, fears, doubts, hopes, cares, perplexities, in short, all the distracting emotions with which the minds of men are wont to be agitated” in holy words that we can learn to pray, the same way Jesus prayed them.
Praying the Psalms is a means of grace and a key discipline in our church’s life together. Whether you are new to the psalms or deeply familiar with them, I trust that we all have something to learn from time in this precious book. Our goal will be to grow in our knowledge and affection for praying the psalter in community with one another and with our Savior Jesus Christ.
