psalms in the summer: part two

On June 1 we will begin an experiment of immersion, over the 90 days of summer, into the Psalms. Since you have found this blog on the internet, you have some comfort level with cyberspace, so I will encourage to take a couple of steps beyond the place where you now sit (or stand). If you inhabit Facebook, simply enter the site and search for "Summer Psalms". You will find the group by clicking the icon that is "footprints in the sand". The footprints were actually taken from a beach in Haiti, and that is another story. At any rate, the "Summer Psalms" community will give you a gathering place to comment on the psalms, view and post links to great music and photograph, express yourself creatively and pray. You do not have to be a member of our church or any church, for that matter. Our conviction is that the Psalms themselves have the power to form community, as they have done across the ages.

If you like, you can also find us at Twitter. Simply go find us here
and click "enter" or "join". We will be posting, for the most part, 140 character "stream of conciousness" thoughts, fragments or paraphrases of the Psalms that can be read each day. Again, by reading one psalm in the morning and one in the evening, six days each week, you will be able to read through the Psalms over the 90 days of the summer.

Our goal is based on the simple conviction that we can take the scriptures to the people through technology, as they travel. And so I hope you will access either of these sites via your computer or phone, or both.

Thank you for participating in this "ancient-future" project. We trust that God will continue to transform minds and heart through the reading and praying of the word that is indeed "a lamp to our feet and a light to our path" (119. 105).
