Today, our summer series — “Summer in the Psalms” — continues with Psalm 65, a Psalm of Creation.  In Psalm 65, the psalmist points out that the whole of creation declares its praise to God, and we join our voices with creation in that praise of God.  This psalmist knew how to see and appreciate God both outside the house of God and within the whole of nature.  Every day, in every part of nature, God provides us with reasons to sing His praise.  If we but look around, we will see many reasons to thank God for His abundant examples of creativity and beauty.  Come, let us sing and shout with joy every day.

We look forward to continuing to share the uplifting messages of hope and inspiration found in the Psalms throughout the remainder of the summer.
