We looked at Psalm 119 this past Sunday at FreeChurch and discovered the power of the scriptures when they move beyond information and to a meditation on the word. Jon Osmond spoke to us about how laws can appear to be restricting, but that in truth they can be the an invitation to freedom. If you missed us in person this past week, please connect with our Mixcloud account and catch up on the teachings at FreeChurch.
“I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts” (v.45)
“Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.” (v. 133)
“Oh how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.” (v. 97)
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth.” (v. 103)
Jordan Duerrstein led us in a message this week at FreeChurch. Jordan looked at Psalm 57. If you missed this week, please link to our Mixcloud account and the sermon uploads for our series on the Psalms.
We’ve spent the past two weeks delving into the world of the Lament Psalms. On January 29th, Jon Osmond focused upon Psalm 13 and opened up our discussion around mental health. We heard from members of our community who work for CAMH and looked at how the psalms help us to speak into these areas that we often hold only for ourselves.
On February 5, Jon jumped into Psalm 55 with another look at the area of Lament Psalms. This week focused more upon personal betrayal and where to place the frustration and anger we can all feel. If you missed either of the Lament Psalm weeks, be sure to connect to our mix cloud account and listen to the sermon podcast uploads.
See you this Sunday for further reflection on the Psalms.
