    Priceless Psalms/ Fearfully and Wonderfully Made/September 16, 2018

    Agnes Kramer-Hamstra gives a wonderful talk about two different ways that we can read Psalm 139. One version squelches life and the other awakens it. She sees this psalm as a smaller story within the great story of creation at the beginning of Genesis, and makes it come to life. Agnes is a professor of English Literature at St. Stephen’s University and listening to this talk felt like living inside a poem–it is beautifully delivered.

    Looking Through (September 9, 2018)

     

    Priceless Psalms/ Looking Through/September 9, 2018

    Peter Fitch talk today is on Psalm 25. He looks at the psalm for clues about how we ought to look at God as we approach Him and at how he hopes God looks at us. Then he uses some ideas from Simone Weil to explain the “magic” of transference that can happen to purify our souls if we come to God in these sorts of ways.

    Priceless Psalms/ Who May Ascend (September 2, 2018)

     

    Priceless Psalms/ Who May Ascend/September 2, 2018

    Peter Fitch continues the Priceless Psalm Series by focusing on Psalm 24. He first asks people what they see in the passage. Then he discusses possible positive and negative postures or attitudes in worship that the words of the psalm might evoke. There was a lot of conversation around these ideas and it all builds toward an interesting conclusion.   ( Link to YouTube video, at the start of talk )
