for next week

We’ll continue our study of Psalm 19, the Psalm C.S. Lewis has called “the greatest poem in the Psalter and one of the greatest lyrics in the world.”

We’ll talk a bit about why Lewis felt that way and we will talk more about the structure of the poem, particularly the seemingly abrupt shift from its observations about the glory of God revealed in the natural world (vs 1-6)to its commentary on the moral law (vs 7-11).

We’ll explore possible reasons why the writer was so exuberant about the law and how that emotion might be instructive to and appropriate for us in our day and time.
