Psalm 23

Psalm 23 Hebrew verse from Jerusalem Pottery

Psalm 23 Hebrew verse from Jerusalem Pottery

In our Sunday morning service yesterday we organised our worship around the 23rd Psalm. We read the Psalm, our singing group gave a beautiful recital of Goodall’s, the Lord is my Shepherd and we sang Townend’s version of the Psalm together. I spoke about alternative ways of reading Psalm 23 and I concentrated on the image of God as travelling companion. My approach was greatly influenced by that of Dr Tom McDaniel whose brilliant Psalms course I attended at Palmer Theological Seminary in the early 1990s. In preparing for my sermon I also found these resources from James Charlesworth, Karl Jacobson and  Rabbi Harold Kushner to be very helpful. Have a look for yourself and let me know what you think.
