Journey through Psalms at Good Shepherd

Good Shepherd Lutheran in Paradise Valley will embark on a journey through the Psalms of the Old Testament during its annual Wednesday night Lenten fellowships and worship services, March 13 to April 10. Gather in the dining room at 6 p.m., and begin worship services after that.

Since the seventh century, it has become a common spiritual Church practice to meditate on and pray the Psalms during Lent.

In his introduction to the German translation of the Psalms, Luther wrote, “In the two great human passions of fear and hope, we find depicted in the Psalms a language which no painter can embody, and which even the greatest human actor would fail to transcend.”

Join us on Wednesday nights to April 10, for an honest and uplifting fellowship in The Book of Psalms. Good Shepherd is located at 51 Primrose Street in Paradise Valley, next to the Paradise Valley County Club, and behind the Shepherd of the Valley care center.
