Days like today remind me how much I love studying. I'm working on a paper for my Psalms class; and as I read, I notice little things that point to more things I don't yet know. I get excited about following this new rabbit trail towards learning more about the history of the development of the Old Testament.
I also love that I'm learning how to sing the Psalms, either chanting or as through-composed pieces. There are so many beautiful settings of each individual Psalm. I'm really looking forward to taking a full class on chanting by the time I finish my degree.
Early this February, my class created a worship service based around the Psalms. I wasn't able to attend, but there is a video of it. It was to exciting to me that they were able to give the Psalms their due as beautiful pieces of poetry.
I love being in this community where we worship together early and often. ^_^
