The Sabbatical Series with the Psalms with Guest speakers
Psalm 1- Andy Woof
11th April 2021
The bible scholar Gordon Fee said that the Psalms like no other literature enable us to commune with God. But how do they do that? In the coming eight or so weeks we will explore a few of these Psalms and look at what it means to ‘Pray Our Hearts.’ This morning we start at the very beginning, with Ps 1.
Easter Sunday- Andy Woof
4th April 2021
Welcome to our Easter Service. Today the message comes from Andy Woof
Psalm 16- Mike Bretton
25th April 2021
The main theme of Ps 16 is trust and so we read in the opening verse, ‘Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.’ Of course, it is easy to trust God when things are going well but what about those times when life just ‘sucks?’ What is often true as well though is that when life is tough we quickly run to God for help but what do we do when life is ‘plain sailing’ – are we prone perhaps to forget God?
Psalm 137- Andy Woof
18th April 2021
For those of you who remember the pop group, ‘Boney M’, this morning’s Psalm, Psalm 137, will sound quite familiar, that is until we get to the last few verses. What confronts us there and no doubt shocks us is the tirade of hate speech that pours out of the Psalmists mouth. One of the questions you might justifiably ask then is what place does this Psalm have in God’s word?
Psalm 102 Praying Our Mortality – Andy Woof
25th April 2021
This morning Andy touches on a subject that for many is something we simply don’t talk about – that of our mortality. And of course, death is no respecter of race, gender or social background; it is the great leveller from which none of us is immune. And perhaps this morning you feel you are on a bobsleigh that has no brakes – that life is just passing you by and at some point is going to come to a crashing end. What then is the Psalmists experience here and how does he respond?
