In 1620, a group of English Protestants, called Puritans boarded the Mayflower. Over one hundred men, women, and children left their homeland and crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the hopes of a better future. Puritans were people who journeyed with the ache. We all journey with the ache. Where do we find hope and renewal when the ache saps us? For thousands of years the poetry found in the heart of the Bible has given people a voice for their aches. The Psalms are spiritual food as we journey with the ache. This sermon begins a four-week conversation about the Psalms and the seasons of our lives.
