Pastor Jonathan Cummings continues our “Finding Our Voice: Responses to God in the Psalms” series with a look at Psalm 13, a Psalm of Lament.
“Of course, if the liturgy [worship] is to be authentic we must genuinely experience the world as gift and glorious work of God and feel the joy of gratitude; otherwise the songs of praise are mere sounds. We must genuinely experience the world as disobedient to God and feel the regret of repentance; otherwise the gestures of repentance are mere gestures. And we must genuinely experience the world as the suffering of God and feel the agony of lament; otherwise the words of intercession are mere words. Authentic experience and life in the world is a condition of authentic liturgy [worship].”
-Nicholas Wolterstorff, Hearing the Call: Liturgy, Justice, Church and World, 28
