Made

    Psalms of Orientation

    Borrowing again from the language of famed theologian Walter Brueggemann, “Made” will be a collection of sermons based on Psalms of Orientation. We have already explored Psalms of Disorientation and Psalms of Reorientation. We will now explore what Brueggemann calls Orientation Psalms. These Psalms were written in the context of "satisfied seasons of well-being that evoke gratitude for the constancy of blessing." These "articulate joy" in the light of God's creation and governing law. They are faithful professions. Psalms were written for worship, so our goal will be to highlight the seasons of well-being to evoke worship in the people of God toward the God of the people.
