For many believers, the psalms comprise an essential part of the liturgy of Holy Communion–a welcome pause between the Old Testament reading and the Epistle. The psalms are much more than this. They are words which nourished the spirituality of Jesus. They abound in insights regarding God’s relationship with the natural world, text that offer us words for prayer when our words fail us, and an inexhaustible mine of poetic imagery with which to ponder life and faith. In this retreat we will read, sing, reflect on, and enjoy the psalms.
