Lent 2017
Let’s talk about The Psalms
Otterburn Vicarage
Monday evenings in Lent: 7.30 pm - 9.00 pm
The ancient poems we call Psalms are over 2000 years old. They were written in very different times from our own when humans could travel at the speed of a camel - not at the speed of sound. But these songs have stood the test of time for they address many of the problems we still face: violence, injustice, anger - and bewilderment. Why do the wicked prosper? Where is God when we suffer? In this 5-session course, Bishop Stephen Cottrell - a prolific and popular author - reflects on the psalms in general (and five psalms in particular). He invites us to join him as he does so.

Session 1  6th March   Know that the Lord is God. (Psalm 100)
Session 2 13th March Out of the depths have I cried  (Psalm 130)
Session 3 20th March How long, O Lord?  (Psalm 13)  
Session 4 27th March You spread a table before me. (Psalm 23)
Session 5  3rd April Unless the Lord builds the house (Psalm 127)

The sessions will be based on a CD featuring a discussion by the Dominican Friar Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Revd John Bell of the Iona Community, the Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons Revd Prebendary Rose-Hudson Wilkin and Revd Dr Jane Leach, the Principal of Wesley House Cambridge.


will be sung by David Ritson at
