Discovering Praise (2022)

Praise sometimes requires a journey.  Life can go sideways, filling us with tears, fears, or anger, rather than joy.  How can we see God through these clouds?  The Psalms often take us on this journey, from lament to praise through prayer.

Sermons also available by podcast.
