My Heart Cries Out

March 5 – April 16, 2017 (Lent)

The book of Psalms is one of the most familiar books of the Bible, even for those who do not call themselves Jews or Christians. It is a collection of 150 songs by a variety of authors in a wide range of circumstances. They give voice to every human emotion, all expressed in the context of covenant relationship to the God of Israel. During the season of Lent, we explore the many ways the psalmists cry out to God—in joy, pain, and everything in between—and in so doing, we delve more deeply into our own hearts and discover the prayers waiting to find a voice.
