A Review of Psalms Vol. 1

In an effort to musically reimagine some of the Bible’s darker Psalms, Garden City and friends have brought us Psalms of the Forgotten, a 10-song album comprising Psalms 3, 6, 10, 22, 31, 55, 77, 77, 79, and 88.

Today, Charlie Hall still believes God is birthing something new in him even though he’s been leading music in Baptist, charismatic and de-churched settings for 25+ years. For much of his ministry Charlie admits struggling...

‘Look Along’ a Baby to Celebrate Advent

Babies’ are innocent and cuddly, yet they can have the most unsettling cry. Maybe this is what causes the Psalmist in Psalm 8 to say: Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes,     to still the enemy and the avenger. Even in this verse it implies that there’s a mastery, both in purity and in gusto that makes babies so calm and composed, but yet warrior like in their threat...

Responsorial Psalm 118: This Is the Day the Lord Has Made!

  Let me begin by saying, “Buckle your seat belts–the holiday season is officially upon us.” While it’s easy to be immediately sucked into Christmas plans, gifts and decorations, Thanksgiving is a holiday that I choose to engage in, even if it has a smaller bling factor. Thanksgiving centers us in reflection and gratefulness. The Psalms, specially Psalm 118, offer practical words and actions we can use to...
