Sermon Series: Psalms in the Key of Life
Posted on January 5, 2014 by under Worship,

Psalms in the Key of Life: The focus for this series comes from Pastor Taylor’s experience with his son Andrew’s accident.  The place he returned to throughout these four months has been the Book of Psalms.  It was the center of his devotional reading and life.  The Psalms have been called the prayer book of God’s people. In these 150 prayers the full range of human emotion and religious affection is laid bare.


In his book: The Message of the Psalms,Walter Brueggeman outlines three types of Psalms from scripture:

  • Psalms of Orientation
  • Psalms of Disorientation
  • Psalms of Reorientation

The following six psalms reflect these styles and are chosen for this series:
