We begin a worship series on the Psalms and, with huge credit to Walter Brueggemann, Pastor Megan begins by exploring how folks "on the desperate edge of their lives" cried these prayers and songs destined to last and resonate for thousands of year. And because a Psalm is better prayed than preached, Pastor Megan launches from Psalm 1 to write her own Psalm, her own "deeply human utterance" directed to the God of the wester red cedar, the redwood, the sugar maple, and the gingko. It is, at the last, a Psalm for something as fickle as happiness.
