When God Is Absent
Passage: Psalm 13
We are designed for flourishing and everlasting life, but we daily wrestle with the fatal distractions and chronic distortions of that good life. The world is not the way it’s supposed to be. We are the problem. But into our mess, into our failures, into our misplaced hopes, into the wrongs done to us and the wrongs we have done, God speaks life. The Psalms are the Word of God and our words to God. With honesty and thoroughness, the Psalms show us the way out of death into a flourishing, fruitful, everlasting life. Full of emotion and truth, the Psalms wake up our spiritual imaginations and bring us into the very presence of our God. Join us in our sermon series from the Psalms, Flourish.
