This project addresses several questions. Can the Psalter continue to be our "School of Prayer" and teach pastor and congregation how to pray? Can the Psalms be listened to as the Word of God? Can the constant and strong appearance of praise and joy in the Psalms transform congregational worship and bring greater awareness of God's presence and person? The long and significant faith tradition shows that the Psalms do indeed speak for us to God and to us from God. The liturgical venture challenges the congregation and pastor to experience the Psalms as our song and prayer book and as the Word of God.
