Psalms for Today

Julie Borden, Worship Associate; David Early, Technology Associate

The book of Psalms from the Old Testament is comprised of tools of the ancient world. Tools for healing, cries of anguish and for justice, expressions of humanity from a people in a torn and broken world. What is there to be learned from these tools and how can they be useful in our current contexts?
