September Sermon Series – Three Sermons on Three Psalms of Ascent St. Paul Lutheran Church
“A Sense of Community In Sunday Worship at St. Paul”
Tucked away in the Hebrew Psalter, the Book
of Psalms, is a section of
Psalms (Psalms 120 through 134) called “Psalms
of Ascents.” These
were Psalms sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way up to worship in
Jerusalem. For our Sunday
worship services in September, Pastor Don will take three of these Psalms of Ascent and offer
three messages that point toward and promote the benefits of a “sense of
community with fellow worshippers on Sunday mornings.”
Sunday, September 8, “A Sense of Community That Is Inviting”
Psalm 133 – “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in
Sunday, September 15 –

Psalm 126 –
“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who
dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with
shouts of joy.”
Sunday, September 29, “A Sense of Community That Says “Yes” To God “ Psalm 120 – “In my distress I cry to the Lord, that he may answer me: ‘Deliver me, O Lord, from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.”
