We want to use the Psalms (the poems, prayers and reflections) to grow our ability to have an authentic conversation with God within the whole of life, the good and the bad, the beautiful and ugly, the hopeful and the confusing. The Psalms give us words to articulate our experience in a real, honest way that is not just honest for us but let God be honest with us. The Psalms articulate true spirituality at an emotional as well as intellectual level. In different circumstances and seasons, the Psalm are meant to help us deepen our conversation and give us words and permission to get real. Honest with ourselves and honest with God.
