Sunday, March 24, 2019
Theme: Lent 2019 – Moved By Grace – Prayer
Scripture: Psalm 27
Liturgy: Rev. Beth Walker
Sunday Message: Rev. Beth Walker
Traditionally David’s Psalm is thought to have two sections. The first section declares the power of God and the boundless hope that God will bring rescue and protection from all enemies. The second portion has a clear shift in tone with the declaration “I believe.” Some scholars contend that it may have originally been two entirely separate Psalms. It is interesting to note how they have been assembled into one. A place of deep curiosity for many is the shift between hope of who God is and believing in God. And we wonder: is this movement a sign of grace?
