This Sunday is week 13 of Christ in the Psalms at Park Church Highlands and we’re in Psalm 119. Instead of taking Psalm 119 section-by-section, we’re addressing it topically over the course of three weeks. In this third and final, week, the topic is “God’s Word to Us.”
If anything, 2020 exposed our glaring inability to have hard conversations about issues that matter with charity and humility while not sacrificing conviction and truth. At this event, we discussed practicing a pattern of love in how we engage with disagreement as unified witnesses of Jesus in the world.
About The Public Square:
Throughout history, the Church has recognized its place in speaking into the broader culture around us. God designed us, and He knows both what our societies need to thrive and what causes their decay. As Christians in our city and country, we want to speak with wisdom, grace, and clarity about what leads to human flourishing as a testament to the truth of God’s word and the power of the Gospel to bring life.
To help us do this well, we are re-introducing a series of events called “The Public Square,” preparing us to contribute faithfully in spaces where people and opinions interact.
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives instructions for a flourishing life under the reign of God. As famous as this sermon may be, many will hear the teachings of Jesus—or even admire the words of Jesus— without putting them into practice. This message has been the same since the Garden of Eden. Human beings will only experience flourishing life when they trust and obey the Word of the Lord.
