A Psalm a Day: Book 1 of the Psalter

posted in: Psalms | 0

One of my ongoing projects, as a form of spiritual discipline, is to try and cover every Psalm in an ‘A Psalm a Day’ format. I recently finished ‘Book 1’ of the Psalter, Psalms 1 through 41. I’ve collected links to them all here. I’ve tried to summarise them here in a sentence – click on the link to dig deeper – which echoes the theological nature of my reflections, by and large, I’ve been trying to see what they say about God.
