PRAYING THE PSALMS

In the center of our Scriptures is a peculiar set of texts that contain everything from wondrous praise of our Creator, to celebrations of life’s greatest moments, to passionate pleas for vengeance. This peculiar set of texts is known asĀ The Psalms. Biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann suggests that there are three general themes within the Psalms: psalms of orientation, psalms of disorientation, and psalms of new orientation. Likewise, he suggests that “the flow of human life characteristically is located either in the actual experience of one of those settings or is in movement from one to another.” Throughout this series, we will be exploring these different types of psalms and the role that they can place in our life of faith.
