Friday Encouragement – April 27, 2018

New Sermon Series – Stories From the Psalms Bible doesn’t compare us to strong lions, swift antelopes, or some other clever animal…but to sheep!  Sheep have the reputation of being not the brightest animal on the farm (Hey, I resemble that)!  And sheep are known to function at their best when under the care of a shepherd.

This Sunday we’ll take a look at what is probably the most popular psalm of all – Psalm 23.  I’m pleased that Janelle Deas will be teaching.  Can’t wait!

The Psalms have a wonderful capacity to capture the reality of our human experience.  They express the emotions, personal feelings, attitudes, gratitude, and interests of the average individual.  One reason people love the Psalms is that we can each usually identify the Psalms with our own experiences.  In every experience of our own, no matter how deep the pain or how great the frustration or how exhilarating the joy, we can find psalms which echo our inmost being, psalms which God uses to bring comfort or to confirm release.

Make sure to bring your Bible for this series!

Sunday, 4/29 –

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters,

He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness

for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff,

they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

See ya Sunday!

Pastor Mark
