Christian Formation Classes
The Christian’s life isn’t simply transformed by the Gospel when we first come to faith in Jesus,
but every aspect of our life is continually transformed as we live within the context of the Gospel.
Praying the Psalms
January 5 – February 9
The Psalms have fallen into disuse for many Christians today for several reasons. First, there are the difficult passages (especially for modern sensibilities) of seeking retribution on enemies, and the many places of despondence. Second, more recent interpreters have been hesitant to interpret the Psalter as referring to Christ, His person and work, even though Christ himself did so! Third, it takes some theological literacy to navigate the Psalms, and that literacy is no longer widespread. Finally, the Psalms are poetry that takes time to penetrate, while we live in a fast-paced culture with little time for reflection. This class will help us navigate the Psalms appropriately and learn to incorporate them into our prayers.
