New Commandment

May 23 at 7:00 pm (Session 3)
Join Nancy Anderson, a member of LELC with an Associate in Ministry degree, in exploring the ancient poetry of the Psalms. The Psalmists ask, “Where are you God? Why don’t you help me?” They also express joy and praise in their prayers. We will discuss the historical context, differentiate the categories of Psalms, and learn hints for reading Hebrew poetry, all while we “sing” our favorite Psalms or explore some new ones. Please sign up on the bulletin board. We meet in the Adult Education Room in the Learning Center.
