#Psalmtweets — Sunday 27th August 2017
As explained in my previous post, the 27th August sees the start of new Twitter #psalmtweets journey. A number people who enjoy the Book of Psalms are going to tweet about each of the 150 psalms over 150 days. Day one will be Psalm 1, day two will be Psalm 2, and so on, in… Continue reading
Isaiah Tweets: 37 to 66
This is the final collection of Isaiah tweets. I have found journeying through Isaiah day-by-day, tweeting a chapter a day, a refreshing and illuminating experience. I would strongly others to try this as a modern spiritual discipline. As with tweeting the Psalms it remains a challenge to work within the 140 character limit. Yet, in… Continue reading
On Tweeting Isaiah
My church, New Life Baptist Church (Guildford), is looking at Isaiah 40-55 on Sunday mornings during January to March this year. Alongside this we are encouraging the whole church to work through the book of Isaiah as part of their daily devotions. The collective reading and reflection helps make our small groups function more effectively… Continue reading
Reflecting on Tweeting the Psalms: Psalms 81-100
I have been tweeting the psalms for well over two years now. The idea is a simple one: I pray a psalm a day as a basic daily devotional activity. I have set it as the bare minimum of my daily engagement with Scripture. Most days it is a foundation to other reading and reflection.… Continue reading
Psalmtweets: Psalms 61-70
This post continues the summary of recent psalmtweets. These psalmtweets are part of a set attempting to say something simultaneously about a specific psalm and the whole Psalter. This is working out with varying degrees of success. Psalm 61: The picture of eternal life in the Psalms is one of dwelling with Yahweh and worshiping… Continue reading
Psalmtweets: Psalms 51-60
This is a continuation of my latest series of psalmtweets which is an attempt to see how each psalm contributes to the whole. This is part of a broader experiment in using psalmtweets as a daily spiritual discipline. Psalm 51: The Psalms speak of the need for a broken spirit and a willing spirit, all… Continue reading
Psalmtweets: Psalms 41-50
Our journey continues with these 10 psalms. We continue our effort to use individual psalms to define the Psalter. Psalm 41: The Psalms celebrate the faithful’s care for the helpless and the poor. Psalm 42: Thirsting for God is a normal part of the life of faith according to the Psalter. Psalm 43: The Psalms… Continue reading
This is the 4th post of my latest round of Psalmtweets. Psalm 31: The Psalms show that suffering and illness are part of the life of faith. But trust, hope & faith are the greater part. Psalm 32: The Psalms teach us about The Way. Yahweh’s instruction is more than just knowledge. Psalm 33: The… Continue reading
The third of the new psalmtweets posts. These tweets are part of a set of 150 which aim to define the Psalter with a contribution from each psalm. Psalm 21: The Psalms often speak of the King. These words have taken on new significance in Christ. Psalm 22: The Psalms show how desperate need should… Continue reading
Psalmtweets: psalms 11-20
This is the second post for my latest round of psalmtweets. The aim is that each tweet is faithful to a key aspect of a specific psalm, as well as pointing to a broader dynamic of the Psalter. This ‘design’ is an attempt to mirror the nature of the Psalter, in that individual psalms come… Continue reading
This blog’s central aim is to explore all aspects of how the Psalter (the biblical psalms) functions as Scripture today.
To this end it will also include book reviews on the Book of Psalms and related topics.
Some posts will reflect more broadly on biblical interpretation or hermeneutics.
If you like what you see here and want to arrange for me to give a lecture, run a teaching event or a short retreat based around The Psalms then contact me so we can discuss how this might work.
