Join us for a time of worship followed by discussion and study. Separate classes meet for ages from children through adults. Nursery provided. This week we will be continuing our study of the Psalms of Ascent.
Psalms 120-134 were likely sung by Hebrew pilgrims as they went up to Jerusalem to celebrate the worship festivals. (Because of its height above sea level, a visit to the city would have been “up” no matter where you came from.) The ascent was not just literal, it was also a metaphor for a life lived upward toward God, a journey of continual spiritual growth.
Join us tonight as we study Psalm 131.
A song of ascents. Of David.
Lord, my heart is not proud;
my eyes are not haughty.
I do not get involved with things
too great or too wondrous for me.
2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted my soul
like a weaned child with its mother;
my soul is like a weaned child.
3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
both now and forever. -- Psalms 131:1-3 (CSB)
