Sermon Preview - Honestly...What a Wonderful World

This Sunday, August 14, Pastor Heckman will preach on Psalm 23. We invite you to read the passage below in preparation for Sunday's sermon and consider the Reflection Question during your devotional time. 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
for his name’s sake.


Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff—
they comfort me.


You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
my whole life long.
— Psalm 23 (NRSV)

Reflection Question: What does this Psalm mean to you? Comfort? Joy? Sadness?
