The Psalms speak faith in times of disappointment & distress. These are songs of lament we need to sing even though they can be edgy, earthy songs of soul.
Psalms express our spiritual longing, our deep desire to know God and be known by God. How we can identify & address our spiritual longing. Finding God’s nearness. More we’re aware/we hunger for it. Steps know/meet God.
Being welcoming as a church, opening our hearts and reaching out to newcomers that God sends to us. We are called to share our love, our welcome and respond to people’s needs they bring with them for community, for God, for spiritual growth and help.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some entertained angels without knowing it. What brings people to church for 1st time?
