ps from ps –
Lenten version during the season of Lent, we have a tendency to slow things down.  To be a tad more intentional.

So during these “40 days” we will be adding Soup and Psalms in person at SPEC each Wednesday at 12pm.  When we gather, we’ll read a particular Psalm (the same one that will come up in the weekend worship) and ask ourselves a few questions and then take time in prayer.

So I’m inviting you to do the same thing.  Join us in person if you can (4007 Main St, Eggertsville NY 14226).  But if you can’t, join us in spirit through email.

Here is our Psalm for the week: Psalm 22:23-21.  Read it through once, giving yourself a chance to breathe after, and then read it one more time.  
 Psalm 22: 23-31
You who fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him;
    stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he did not despise or abhor
    the affliction of the afflicted;
he did not hide his face from me,
    but heard when I cried to him.25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
    my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
    those who seek him shall praise the Lord.
    May your hearts live for ever!27 All the ends of the earth shall remember
    and turn to the Lord;
and all the families of the nations
    shall worship before him.
28 For dominion belongs to the Lord,
    and he rules over the nations.29 To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down;
    before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
    and I shall live for him.
30 Posterity will serve him;
    future generations will be told about the Lord,
31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn,
    saying that he has done it.
Then ask yourself the following:
1.  What caught your attention?
2.  What questions does this bring up?
3.  What do you hear God saying to us through it?

Feel free to share any of our thoughts with me and if you email steve@stpaulseggertsville.com before 11am Wednesdays, I will share them with the in-person group.

Enjoy Lent.  

Lord, speak to me.  Amen

Still in One Peace,
