Purification, Humility, Repentance, and Judgment in James 4:8-12

We start tonight with a question about going beyond superficial Christianity into Christian maturity and walking with the Saints.  We next continue with the themes of purification as we approach God, humbling ourselves before God, and the interaction of humility and judgment.  We end introducing a discussion on self-will.

The Magnificat: Humility, Greatness, Mary and the Veneration of Saints

Tonight we study the Magnificat in Luke 1:46-55.  We discuss what God is teaching us about humility, grace, and exaltation in Mary.  We examine Mary's need for a Savior and look at some of the earliest Church writings to examine the ancient practice of the veneration of Saints.  There is a question about the Rosary and we talk about being great and the importance of obscurity as we grow in grace.

Psalm 4: Recovering from Rebellion and Psalm 134: Bless God Through the Night

Tonight's study begins with Psalm 4 as a possible response of David to Absalom's rebellion.  We branched into how we can and must find joy in our afflictions, digressed into one reason for intercessory prayer including prayer to Saints, and concluded with a discussion of complete trust in and surrender to the will of God.

We then continued on to Psalm 134 by first introducing the Songs of Ascents.  We referenced the round the clock praise of God in the temple and its extension into our need and desire as a community to provide for those who today offer their lives in constant prayer and praise.  With finished by dwelling on the deep intimacy we can have with God.

We then turned off the cameras and prayed Night Prayer of the vigil of All Saints which uses Pss 4 and 134 as the psalmody.
