Though our poor spelling is a rather clever idea, some of you might be wondering about Psummer Psalms and all the different faces we’ve seen teaching the past few Sundays.
Psummer Psalms has been a running tradition at The Sanctuary for a few years now.
For those of you new to the church, Psummer Psalms is a teaching series where different “voices”, who you don’t normally hear on a Sunday morning, teach from the book of Psalms.
Psummer Psalms isn’t just something we do to give Pastor Marty a break from his weekly sermon preparation, (though this is arguably a happy side-effect) but it also gives our church a chance to hear a message from another voice within our Sanctuary community.
“Why hear from these other voices?” you might ask.
In 1 Corinthians 12 the apostle Paul describes the church as the Body of Christ, with every person working differently, but serving an important function, all working together.
Paul says that while the eye is helpful to see, and the ear helpful to hear, there are also other parts that make a healthy body besides eyes and ears.
A body made of nothing but eyes or ears will not be able to walk, eat, or speak. It is only when you have the many different parts working together, that we have a healthy and functional body.
Simply put, there are many different types of people that fill our congregation, and sometimes it is helpful to hear other voices share from their hearts, and their experiences.
Now several weeks into Psummer Psalms we have already heard from Pastor Rachel, Foursquare President Glenn Burris, Bob Bae, and we are excited to hear from many others!
Make sure to join us in the coming weeks to hear these wonderful voices, that we might continue to grow into Christ’s image together.
Back-to-school. Insert sad face. I know for many parents this has become a day of celebration. But for this Mama, it’s all boohoo’s.
Have you ever had the feeling you weren’t made for this earth? There are days I am convinced I may never realize satisfaction in this life.
Kids need someone other than their friends and the media helping them process; they need a caring adult like you. So, how do we talk with kid’s about tragic events?
I’m sure I’ve told you about the cactus that survives on my front porch… but have I ever told you why I keep it?
I have a cactus that sits on my porch. I put it there to move people...
Thank you for the prayers, texts, phone calls and financial gifts. We have felt your love and commitment.
There is so much that has taken place over the last couple of months since leaving The Sanctuary that it’s tough to know where to begin.
For years my understanding of Sabbath was to sit at home, no work, no fun, read and pray all day...so of course, I told myself, “I can’t do that!” …who could?!
I enjoy going on a stroll in our neighborhood, especially during the morning hours in springtime. It’s peaceful and the outside air so refreshing. I’ve read in different fitness articles to “walk like you’re in a hurry” in order to...
I LOVE dessert, I especially love ice cream. It started when I was a kid and my parents started rewarding us for a good report card, or a high grade on a difficult test, or to celebrate milestones in our lives.
All it takes is water! Water makes growth happen and the green hillsides taking shape all over our valley are pure evidence of that.
Have you been to “THAT” bakery and tasted their brownies? Don’t get me wrong there are all kinds of breads and pastries, cookies, croissants, pies, and cakes out there… but brownies, this is what the public really wants!
