This week we begin a journey of 11 weeks together in a world of poetry, prayer and honest human expression. The Psalms call us to bring the fullness of our raw humanity into an encounter with our Creator and Sustainer. These poems / songs / texts teach us that there is no human experience or expression borne out of that experience that cannot be spoken (screamed?) to God. We won’t need to clean ourselves up, or get our act together first. This is truly good news for those of us who are weary of pretense and ready to accept the reality of our human nature, as well as the immense receptivity and companionship of the God who is with us.
