Just finished working on a Calvin Worship Renewal grant application for Christ the King Presbyterian Church in Raleigh, NC on the Psalms of Ascents. As I continue to read and meditate on this collection of psalms I am awed, and dragged down into a deeper appreciation and wonder at how God both invigorates and understands the human spiritual pilgrimage.
