January 29: The emotion of enmity is as prevalent in the Psalter as is joy or gratitude. The poet openly speaks to the presence of enemies and the fear they evoke.  Cormac McCarthy’s character Judge Holden is as bad as they come.  He says, “What joins men together is not the sharing of bread, but the sharing of enemies.”  In the 56th Psalm the psalmist is driven to the limit only to be derided by his foes.  Trust in God robs his fear of terror; he perseveres.

January 22: Few hear it, the harmony of the moon, stars and sun. The psalmist perceived the hidden voice of nature.  C. S. Lewis thought the 19th was the greatest poem of the Psalter.  Here the psalmist holds out that the human eye and ear are endowed so as to discern “the heavens telling the glory of God.”  Join me Sunday as we continue our January foray into the Psalter. -Pastor Steven

Coming This Sunday January 15

January 15: The image of an Oreo cookie comes to  mind, two chocolate wafers with a vanilla filling.  Psalm eight is framed with the refrain: “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is thy name in all the earth.”  It was sung by the congregation in worship.  The wafers to the psalm deal with the glory of God; the understanding of humankind is filling.  The psalmist teaches that you can’t have the latter without the former.  Join me Sunday to explore the glory of God and the power of humankind.      —Pastor Steven
