Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: The notes in my bible indicate that this psalm is “A Song for the Sabbath Day.” And it so easily can be heard as a Sunday worship celebration. Giving thanks. Singing praises. Lute and harp. (Guitar and Organ?) Because we witness God’s work. We sing for joy. Great way to understand and appreciate the Sunday liturgy. A wonderful sabbath.
But why wait for Sunday? God’s love is daily. God’s faithfulness is always. God’s works are experienced minute by minute. So, why not celebrate sabbath moments? Sun up to sun set. Morning to night. Take a moment in your morning to say thanks. Take a moment at lunch to hum a hymn. Take a moment on the way home to praise the Lord. Sabbath Moments.
