I am surrounded by trouble, but you protect me against my angry enemies.
With your own powerful arm you keep me safe.
You, LORD, will always treat me with kindness.
Your love never fails. You have made us what we are.
Don't give up on us now!
“This sermon is not a ‘we will be fine’ encouragement to stick together as we ride out a tough economy, changing demographics and an itch fellow members feel to graze in greener pastures. I hope we will stick together. It would be wise for us to stick together. But in the end, like the writers of the psalms, we rely wholly and completely on the durability and faithfulness of our God.”
