NEW Lent Preaching / Study

Within the Psalms, there is a collection of fifteen ancient songs, known as the “Songs of Ascent.” These ancient prayer-songs were sung and spoken by multitudes of pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem, and they continue to be used in the spiritual journey of the modern Christian. Each psalm offers advice to those who wish to grow spiritually and draw themselves closer to God, oftentimes posing challenges and difficult questions for the pilgrim on their way.

William G. Carter uses The Pilgrim Road to accentuate the advice that each of these psalms offers to those searching for the path to God. Although the path is not always smooth and easy, Carter reminds us that, as pilgrims, putting our faith in God does a lot more for our spiritual journey if we practice what we preach. Throughout his book, Carter offers thought-provoking questions about the reader’s life, intended to force us to take a step back from the trees and look at the forest as a whole. Once we take the time to view ourselves from the perspective of another, we can truly observe our actions in the world around us and begin to make changes where necessary....More info...
