Come early and before the service enjoy the piping of Kirsten and Gordon Stewart out on the lawn at the corner of Princess and Clergy!
These weeks of summer we will explore several psalms of scripture, and hear them set to music in the beautiful metrical paraphrases of the Scottish Presbyterian tradition. The psalms are provided to us by God for us to use when words fail us with God, the psalms have shaped generations of God’s people, the psalms articulate every circumstance and emotion of human life and lift them into the hands of God for guidance, the psalms are our songs of life.
We begin this Sunday with Psalm 36, a song of praise: join us!
Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgements are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart! Psalm 36:5-10
