Along with this week’s Order of Service I thought you might like to read the Thought for the Day that I did on Radio Scotland on Tuesday this week. It focused on the Psalms which have been lifting me these past few weeks, particularly after I attended a brilliant online conference ‘Celebrating the Psalms’ early in January. There were 3 speakers : Professor Canon Sue Gillingham – Professor emeritus from Oxford University; Very Rev Rowan Williams and Rev John Bell, and all were inspiring. The Psalms speak to the human heart and give voice to our deepest emotions – they call us to lift up how we truly feel to God and to trust in the Lord – they also challenge and disrupt us, as the Psalm I shall be preaching on this Sunday does!
