PRAYING THE PSALMS     Today at our 9.30am service we continue in our series in the Psalms which is running through June, July and August (excluding the Family Praise services).  Each week we’ll consider one Psalm; ’ll seek to explore its content and theme, and reflect on what it teaches us.  Now over these few weeks we won’t be able to do justice to all 150 Psalms, we just can’t fit them in…… and so over the summer I’d encourage you to do some summer reading.   Each day read a couple of Psalms, maybe one in the morning and one evening, and by mid September you’ll finish!   And so I’d really recommend giving it a go. read them through, think them through, pray them through and allow them to dwell with you this summer.      Revd Emma
