Liturgical Content for May 24
Reflection + Discussion Questions
- Over the next four weeks, we will engage God through the Psalms, specifically with our fears, pain, failures and doubts. Which of those most characterizes your experience of this season: fear (anxiety, dread), pain (isolation, depression, sadness), failures (sin, temptation, escape), or doubt (resentment, bitterness, questioning God)?
- Read aloud together one of the Psalms we’ll be discussing. Choose one: Psalm 3, 22, 130, or 73. What words or phrases resonate with you and why? Does anything in this Psalm surprise you? How so?
- Jesus clearly immersed himself in the Psalms throughout his life. What is significant about that to you?
- Now move into prayer together. Read the Psalm from #2 slowly to yourself and allow it to shape the “what” and “how” of your spoken prayer. Take your time with this process. If you’re praying with someone else, take turns and allow silence as you work your way slowly through the Psalm.
Watch the video with your children entitled "Jesus' Baptism". There are questions underneath that you can use to reflect and discuss with them.
