During the season of Lent, I had the pleasure of being in a weekly group who read and discussed “Creed: What Christians Believe and Why (Exploring the Apostles’ Creed).” Its author is Adam Hamilton, the respected Senior Pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City.
My birthday is December 5. I know a number of dear people here at FUMCFW who were born that day. There’s J.T. in our youth program; a beautiful young adult named Robin; Sharon, who I call my birthday buddy; Sally, whose wedding I happily officiated; and H.T., who died five years ago and is still missed today.
Jesus quoted most often from three sources: Deuteronomy, Isaiah and the Psalms. A fourth century Christian leader said the Psalms were “songs of the heart”. DISCIPLE BIBLE STUDY did not teach participants “about” the Psalms — instead, it had the goal of “guiding you into the Psalms . . . to let them help you express your inexpressible thoughts and feelings, as they become your prayers.”
