Archdeacon Simon introduces Week 3 of the Summer Reading Challenge
Welcome to Week 3 of our Summer Reading Challenge. This week we will have responses to Psalm 67 from Bec Hill on Wednesday, and Psalm 72 from Rebecca Roberts on Friday.
If you are following Track 1 of our Summer Reading Challenge those are the two psalms you’ll be reading this week. If you are following Track 2 you have a different psalm for each day, including those two. If you are following Track 3 you are reading the psalms from Psalm 55 to Psalm 76. All the details are in the links below this post.
This week I’d like to recommend to you two books which have reflections and prayers for all the psalms: Stephen Cherry’s Psalm Prayers, and Reflections on the Psalms. If it’s helpful to have a companion to guide you through the psalms with some teaching and helps for prayer, either of these books would be great. Both are available from the Cathedral Bookshop: details below.
May God continue to bless you in your reading.

Psalms Summer Reading Challenge
Join Archdeacon Simon in this year’s Summer Challenge reading the book of Psalms together. Sign up to this course and you will receive weekly emails encouraging you in your reading. The Psalms are the hymnbook and the prayerbook of the Temple, and of the Church. In these 150 songs the Psalmist explores the whole range of human experience, with all its highs and lows, of human life lived in the presence of God, and sometimes the experience of the apparent absence of God too. Find out more about the challenge and how you can get involved.Course 19 PartsTotal current bookmarks 12
