See feedback from Wk1., Group 1.http://www.soulmarks.co.uk/online-workshops/online-art-and-prayer-workshops/reflecting-on-the-psalms/

Wk.1: Psalm 19. The Voice of God

The natural world speaks daily of the work and nature of the Creator. A time to pause, reflect, listen and wonder at what it has to say.

Wk. 2: Psalm 91. Symbols of Hope

What is hope for us? What do we hope for, hope in? Reflecting and exploring on the varied metaphors or symbols of God’s promise and hope in the ancient poetry of Psalm 91. Are these helpful and what new symbols might we find or want to use today?

Wk. 3: Psalms 12 and 52. What Should we Pray?

In a broken world that so often can seem unjust, dominated by those who seek to deceive, corrupt and grow rich on the back of the misery and poverty of others, what should we do, where should we turn and what should be pray?

Wk. 4: Psalm 22. Trust.

God’s ways are not our ways and frequently not what we expect or understand, we doubt yet still yearn to believe. We are called to trust.

This psalm reminds us that despite the darknesses of our world and the strange times we find ourselves in, God is there. We must look and acknowledge the divine attributes of God in the world and give thanks.

Wk. 2:Psalm 25:1-10. Teach Me Your Paths

Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.Guide me in your truth and teach me.’ We are made in God’s image, who are we called to be, how are we called to act?

Wk. 3: Psalm 45. The Essence of Jesus Christ

The psalm describes Jesus Christ in many ways. We are called to be like him, yet throughout time He has been given many names and artists have depicted him in many different guises. Who is Jesus Christ to you today? 

Wk. 4: Psalm 4 ‘Search your hearts and be Silent’

We are called to find peace, to trust and to search for joy despite the struggles of the broken world we live in.
