The Greatest Hits of the Psalter—​led by Rev. Tim Pietrogallo

“The LORD is my shepherd. I shall not want.”  “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet.” “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts…”
There is a Psalm in the Holy Bible for every occasion—whether triumph or defeat, excitement or depression, joy or sorrow, praise or penitence, wonder or anger. Join us for an in-depth exploration of the greatest hits of the Psalter!  We will explore the artistic organization of the book, learn to appreciate the form of poetry found in the Psalter, and most importantly, learn to pray the psalms as sheet music for the soul.
