The Psalms - prayers for today's church

IDEAL FOR LENT 2016

An ecumenical course in five sessions written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell comprising course booklet, CD and transcript; ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.

"One health warning: avoid this course if the Psalms hardly feature in your acts of worship, because anyone completing it will be an enthusiast for their wider and more central use."

Church Times reviewer Jan 2016

The ancient poems we call Psalms are over 2000 years old. They were written in very different times from our own when humans could travel at the speed of a camel - not at the speed of sound. But these songs have stood the test of time for they address many of the problems we still face: violence, injustice, anger - and bewilderment. Why do the wicked prosper? Where is God when we suffer? In this 5-session course, Bishop Stephen Cottrell - a prolific and popular author - reflects on the psalms in general (and five psalms in particular). He invites us to join him as he does so.

Five Sessions:

Session One         Know that the Lord is God           (Psalm 100) 

Session Two         Out of the depths have I cried        (Psalm 130)

Session Three        How long, O Lord?  (Psalm 13)                      

Session Four         You spread a table before me  (Psalm 23)

Session Five          Unless the Lord builds the house ...  (Psalm 127) 

The course booklet, written and introduced by Bishop Stephen Cottrell, includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs 1 CD, and group members will benefit from having their own personal copy of the course booklet. In addition many groups find the transcript booklet, which sets out the words as spoken on the CD, invaluable.

The participants on the course CD are the Dominican Friar Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Revd John Bell of the Iona Community, the Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons Revd Prebendary Rose-Hudson Wilkin and Revd Dr Jane Leach, the Principal of Wesley House Cambridge.
