On Sunday, 30 December 2018, I had the privilege of delivering the worship message to St Aidans Takanini, Auckland, New Zealand. The message ended with a challenge:
In preparation for the congregation celebrating their 30th anniversary, why not collectively read through the Psalms?
The challenge was received with excitement and reservation. Most have never committed themselves to systematically read through an entire book in the Bible.
Why the Book of Psalms? Because finding peace through forgiveness, perfection (that’s holding your tongue) and thanksgiving is encouraged by the Psalms. The Psalms will teach you, motivate you and enable you to find the right heart attitude that leads you to peace.
There are 150 psalms for the first 150 days in 2019. However, as many are aware, Psalm 119 is particularly lengthy. We agreed to take 22 days for that chapter.
The challenge is read one Psalm for each day in this new year. After 171 days, St Aidans will be commence celebrations of its anniversary.
