CHRIST IN THE PSALMS 2024

We’re in our thirteenth summer of “Christ in the Psalms.” This year will take us from Psalm 140 to Psalm 150. Next summer we’ll be back to Psalm 1!

Every summer at Park Church, we spend several weeks in the Psalms. The Psalms give us a vocabulary and a “hymnal” for relating to God through the full range of human experience and emotion, ultimately pointing us to Jesus. This annual series, now in its tenth year, is called “Christ in the Psalms.”

Up to this point we have gone week-by-week through Psalm 129, and you can find each of those sermons here.

Additionally, since 2015 (starting with Psalm 41), different artists within our community have done a piece of artwork for each Psalm. That’s what this page is about! To download an artwork guide for any of the previous three years, click on one of the options below. In 2017, we also began posting each new piece as a weekly blog post throughout the summer. Those appear below as well. As we enjoy Christ in the Psalms this summer, you’ll see new artwork appear here in addition to on our regular blog.

Lastly, almost all of the artwork below is available for purchase. To inquire about the availablity of a piece, look for contact information in the blog post associated with the piece, or contact us and we’ll help you get in touch with the artist.

Psalm 143—Artwork

Monday, June 24, 2024

Christ in the Psalms Artwork

This Psalm, although having a desperate setting—that of being in most urgent need, ‘crushed to the ground,’ has immense reserves of hope in the God that saves, the God that is faithful. And so it was my hope to try and capture that desperation mingled with hope. This ultimately led me to use the figures here as well as a muted color palette.
