Our next Worship Series at Northside Church is entitled, “Songs in the Key of Life.” A 1976 Stevie Wonder album inspired the title.
During July, we are exploring the Book of Psalms. The Psalter served as Israel’s hymnal, containing songs of faith written by various authors in different times and circumstances.
The Psalter expresses the spectrum of human emotion and experience—heights and depths, joys and sorrows, laughter and tears, faith, and doubt. Songs in the Key of Life is an apt description of the Psalms. The hymns play every note of human life.
As a part of your devotional practice, join me in reading and praying a Psalm each day over the next five months. There are 150 Psalms, so we can complete the entire Psalter by Thanksgiving. I have read the Psalter multiple times in the past, and I promise that the spiritual discipline will bless your life.
This Sunday we begin with Psalm 122, which declares:
“I rejoiced with those who said to me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
Join us this Sunday for online worship at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:00 through FaceBook or the church website at www.northsideumc.org.
May God grant us the grace to sing a new song to the Lord!
