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.
People generally won’t argue that times were simpler when our day revolved around recess and snack time. There was a sense of eager joy in knowing that no matter how primitive our drawing or painting was- it would find itself displayed on a wall or household surface.

Chances are, your everyday involves being around people who are different than you. The spectrum of those differences might include culture, gender, religion, politics, generations, ethnicity, worldview, career, education, paycheck, marital status… you name it
