Psalms: The School of Prayer

by Jeff Cavins, Sarah Christmyer, and Tim Gray

With Psalms: The School of Prayer, The Great Adventure moves from telling the Story to making it personal. While the historical books of the Bible recount God's creative and redemptive acts in history, the Psalms reveal Israel's response to God's covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him. Indeed, one could say that the historical books tell the "outside" of the story of Israel by giving an historical perspective, while the Psalms tell the "inside" story, which comes from the deeply personal perspective of one who is seeking God. Our communication with God is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the book of Psalms and of the individual psalms that reside in each of our hearts.




ARISE Together in Christ is the latest edition of the RENEW small group parish study.  Organized into 5 seasons of 6 weeks each.  ARISE is a experience of evangelization and spiritual renewal that, unfolds the standards of Chrsit as they apply to all areas of life.  Scriptually grounded, ARISE will help you to make concrete applications of the Gospel in your life situations!  Anyone with a current small group or ministry team in the parish will likewise be invited to use this study for your current small group.

 If you are interested with the planning or to join a group, please contact Kimberly Newcomb at the Parish Office or ARISE@SAINTCECILIA.ORG
