“A Summation and My Psalm-like Poem”

What are my favorite Psalms? What is the nature of Psalms? Who wrote them? And how were they edited? What have I learned from sixteen months of learning and teaching Psalms? What has translating them taught me about poetry?

To better understand the nature of Psalms and inspired, I have written my first such poem (see below). I look to share with you the elements of Psalms that I sought to incorporate and why I chose the images that I did.

On Wednesday at 9:30am, I will conclude the Psalm Project (now available as a portfolio of recordings, click here to watch). Please join me as I reflect on the journey and harvest some of what I have gained.

This learning is dedicated to the many Psalm zoom-participants who encouraged, motivated, and taught me along the way.
