Guest Speaker Steve Imbach, with T.M., Jocelyn Price, Nelson Boschman, Kyla Ferrier and Carter McGuigan (July 25, 2010)
Text: Psalm 23
In an effort to gain a fresh hearing of this beloved, (too?)-well-known Psalm, we decided to approach it communally, from a variety of angles. A few of us who gathered on an early morning mid-week to pray the psalm together were asked to share out of their experience with God in that psalm. After Nelson's introduction, these 'vignettes' are what follow.
And then our special guest, Steve Imbach, offered an extended reflection on the psalm, and invited us into a visual participatory art installation based on Psalm 23:5 ("you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies"). And then Carter read the prayer that he wrote in response to the psalm.
[NOTE: Nelson's vignette was a blog post written by Ron Reed. In the middle of it we watched a movie clip, still shots from which can be seen here in Ron's original post. Taking a look at those will make that part of the podcast make a lot more sense!]
