Use this poetry for personal and communal reflection.
"The Psalms are prescribed and authorized for worship throughout God's kingdom, and without them, our worship is censored, uninformed and incomplete." - Timothy Raymond (editor for Credo Magazine, Indiana)
How would your faith change if you were to sing a psalm a day, evening or morning? How would your community of faith be enriched if you were to include a psalm of historical context, testimony or lament to your services?
"Psalms," in the Hebrew means "Praises." Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among you, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, and singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 (HCSB)
The phrase, "teaching and admonishing", means there should be a place in our worship centers for historical education of the Psalms, performance, and discussion. Won't you spend the price of a meal to invest in this extraordinary means to spiritual growth?
