Over these weeks in Urban Life on Sundays we are looking at some of the Psalms.
They are the songs of the ancient worshippers of the Lord - many written by David, but also by others.
When we read them or sing them, we learn as they instruct us, but we also learn something from them as a model of how to engage with God.
We see what it is to be genuine and honest and humble and real and open and full of wonder.
We see what it is to be people of integrity, people in pain, people struggling with doubts, people wondering what life is all about and how they are going to get through the next day.
We see how to let the truth of God flood our minds and shape our thinking and fill us so that we can move forward.
We see how to honour and praise and worship God in all the breadth of his character, his faithfulness, his sovereign acts through history.
And we we see how to trust him, and how to depend on him.
Sing them with us. Let them shape your walk with God.
