Comfort for the Soul
This week in worship, we continue to find comfort in the wisdom and hope of the Psalms, looking to Psalm 1. Central to this ancient poem is the image of a healthy fruit-bearing tree, planted by the water; an image likened to those whose lives are grounded not in the messaging of popular consumer culture, rather, in the word and the law of God. Psalm 1, a preamble of sorts to the entire book of Psalms assures the reader that God’s desire is for us to prosper and to thrive, as the fruit bearing tree. On this Coffeehouse Sunday we’ll ponder the notion that “We were made to more than just survive, we were made to thrive…” and ask the question, “How is God leading me to prosper and thrive in this time?” Those in the sanctuary will be invited to write responses on a paper ribbon and hang them on the tree to reflect the imagery of the Psalm. Home worshipers are encouraged to have paper and pencil ready for journaling during this time of worship.
