The Psalms and Life in God’s Creation

This series, “The Psalms and Life in God’s Creation ” is presented in five video vignettes. The first four videos feature discussion of the text of texts from the Psalms by Dr. Tim Saleska and Dr. Chuck Arand in a casual, fun setting.

The Leader Guides and Student Handouts were written by Pastor Ellul. The flexible format allows the facilitator to complete this study in as little as one session, or up to five.
