Come along to enjoy a brief creative space as a companion to the Worshipping with the Psalms in Winter project. The session will include an introduction to and reading of the psalm followed by some time to reflect and begin crafting your creative response to Psalm 85. We look forward to any anything that is created being used to shape the liturgies on the last Sunday of each month. We will meet on Zoom.
You have been gracious to your land, O LORD,
you have restored the good fortune of Jacob.
You have forgiven the iniquity of your people
and blotted out all their sins.
You have withdrawn all your fury
and turned yourself from your wrathful indignation.
Restore us then, O God our Saviour let your anger depart from us.
Will you be displeased with us forever?
will you prolong your anger from age to age?
Will you not give us life again,
that your people may rejoice in you?
Show us your mercy, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.
I will listen, O LORD God, to what you are saying, for you are speaking peace to your faithful people and to those who turn their hearts to you.
Truly, your salvation is very near to those who fear you, that your glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth shall spring up from the earth,
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
O LORD, you will indeed grant prosperity, and our land will yield its increase.
Righteousness shall go before you,
and peace shall be a pathway for your feet.
