Bringing Christ's Love to Life
Our Reason for Existence
Sunday worship is Jun 18 at 9a or 11a. Communion happens every Sunday.
A snippet from Sunday's sermon:
Once again, the Psalm hits us where we live. We hope and work for a life free of worries and hard times even when we know full well none of us gets to escape the heartbreak of broken relationships, the hopelessness of a bad diagnosis, or the despair that follows the death of someone we love. Very few of us have not experienced the entire range of emotions the psalmist shares with us in psalm 13 at one time in our life.
I wish I could say psalms of lament were the easy resolution to whatever is causing the heartbreak, feelings of being hopeless, and despair. It would be nice to say that all that we need to do is lift up our laments, our prayers for help and then all would be well and we can move on with our lives. Somehow it should be that we turn to God and everything gets fixed the way we want it. But I can’t, it would be nice but doesn’t work like that, and it should be that simple but our reality is somewhat different.
There's more to the story. Join in the rest of the discussion this Sunday, Jun 18 at 9 & 11.
Meanwhile, some questions to consider:
What emotions does Psalm 13 describe?
Have you ever felt heartbreak, hopelessness, or despair (or other emotions in Psalm 13)?
How and where have you felt like God was absent?
How and where do you feel God’s presence?
