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.
Tonight we’ll study Psalm 133
A song of ascents. Of David.
1 How good and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in harmony!
2 It is like fine oil on the head,
running down on the beard,
running down Aaron’s beard
onto his robes.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon
falling on the mountains of Zion.
For there the Lord has appointed the blessing —
life forevermore. -- Psalms 133:1-3 (CSB)
