Looking Ahead Through the Psalms
As Christians we step into the new year with faith and confidence, knowing our God has been faithful in the past and promises to remain so.
In these times of economic crisis and global uncertainty, of wars around the world and crimes in our own neighborhoods, of global poverty, hunger, and disease, we can easily feel overwhelmed as we face the unknowns of a new year. As Christians, though, we step into the new year with faith and confidence, knowing our God has been faithful in the past and promises to remain so. We step forward, humbly acknowledging our sin of the past, our dependence on God’s grace, and the impossibility of facing the coming year in our own strength. We step forward with hope and joy because our God is great and worthy of praise. It’s a lot to pack into one service, but by using the psalms as its framework, the following service expresses each of those realities.
