Sweet Music and Tough Theology: Studying the Psalms
Led by Dr. Nancy deClaisse-Walford
Professor of Old Testament & Biblical Languages at McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University
If we think of green pastures and still waters as we hear the word Psalms, we should. Or, maybe music comes to mind as we recall the hymnal of the Hebrew people. Inspiring affirmations of God, ambitious appeals for strength and help—these are all part of our collected Psalms. But, also see vivid wrestling with humanity and with the Divine. We hear promise and prophecy. There is both beautiful song and challenging thought gathered there. We’ll study where the Psalms fit within the life of a people, then and now!
This series comprises four 1-hour sessions on Wednesday nights beginning March 23 at 6pm.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
