I’m excited to take the next two months and sit with the Psalms. Each psalm will teach us what it means to be God’s picture.
You heard me correctly: You are God’s picture.
Different. Diverse. Distinct. Unique.
God gives us these psalms as a gift so that we might be God’s generous gift to the world. Author and scholar, N.T. Wright in his book, The Case for the Psalms: Why They Are Essential (2016) hits the nail on its head when he says, “we are called to be living, breathing, praying, singing poems [psalms]” to your neighbors, community, and world.
I’m excited for you to check out July’s OSLC Life email. It’s packed full of ways for you to invite others to join you in being God’s picture where you live, work, and play.

So, as you invite others to join you in being God’s picture to the world this month, I wonder what picture you will take that will capture ordinary people like you and me being living, breathing psalms that bring life to a broken world. I can’t wait to see your pictures the next time I see you! (I’ll be ready to share mine, too.)
In the meantime, as you’re enjoying your Washington summer, remember that “you are God’s handiwork, masterpiece, work of art… created in Christ Jesus to do the good works that God has prepared for us in advance to do” (Ephesians 2:10).
