Join Us in Reading the Bible

The Saint Lucas family is reading through the Psalms twice in 2020.  Please join in! 

We are focusing on one specific Psalm per month. We are encouraged to spend extra time reading, studying, thinking about, and meditating on this one Psalm. At the end of the year, we will know 12 Psalms really well. New study tips and resources are provided every week. 

In addition, we are reading one Psalm per day, six days per week. The reading schedule is listed below and sent in a weekly email on Monday mornings. (Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., if you want your email added to the list.) 

Psalm Journals are available from the church office for $5. (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 414-483-9122)


The Psalm of the month for September is Psalm 116

“Psalm 116 begs to be pondered. Unusual is the person who has not been touched by the cords of death and the anguish of the grave. Rare is the one who has not looked down life's road to see the specter waiting...Psalm 116 is not the studied words of one who is preparing a lesson on death and dying. These are the [inspired] words of a survivor of a "close call" who is blurting out his thoughts and feelings to anyone who will listen,” (a reflection on Psalm 116 from Sermon Studies on Selected Psalms John A. Braun, editor).

Suggested Activities for the week:

Memorize verses 1-4.

Make a list of all the reasons you love the Lord. Review the list and try to add to it everyday this week.

Sept. 6-12:

What is bothering you today? Nothing is too big or too small. Take it to your Father in prayer and rest easy in His promises.

Listen to the hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”

Sept. 13-19:

Memorize verses 10-14.

What does vs. 14 mean for us in the context of the psalm and in the context of our daily lived lives?

What are some specific, personal ways you can worship God throughout your day today?

 Sept. 20-26

Memorize verses 15-19.

Holy Spirit, in your Gospel You have freed me from the chains of sin. Strengthen me through Your Word to let go of my life, so that all that I say, all that I do, all that I am becomes a means to make God’s presence real to those around me.

 

Listen to the song “I Love the Lord.”
