“Look on me and answer, Lord my God.” That’s the prayer of the psalmist, singing out to God, the “maker of heaven and earth, “our refuge and strength.”
The psalms. Though they’re ancient words it’s not hard to find a word in them that speaks what’s on our own minds today–be it praise, thanksgiving, the rawest of lament or even an expression of anger at the God who knows all and upholds all yet sometimes seems so unfortunately silent.
Why do these old prayers and songs still speak to our hearts and minds?
Join us this spring quarter as we seek to answer that question through the lens of music and theology.
