Archdeacon Simon introduces Week 6 of the Summer Reading Challenge
Welcome to week 6 of our Summer Reading Challenge, which concludes next week. I hope you have been blessed by reading the Psalms this summer. If you are reading one of our three tracks you will find this week’s psalms below this post. In Track 1 there are two psalms a week, in Track 2 a psalm a day, and in Track 3 you are reading all the psalms in order.
But if you haven’t kept up with any of our reading tracks, don’t worry. You can always go back and pick up where you left off, or start again with any of these reading tracks at any time.
The Summer Reading Challenge is not a test of your stamina, it’s an invitation to allow God’s Word to live in you and me as we take these texts into our hearts – the challenge is to find a way to make it a part of our holy habits. I am one of those who is used to reading the psalms each day: over this summer I’ve been really enjoying listening to them read on the YouTube video I’ve been linking to here. You might want to go looking for a different recording of the psalms being read or sung.
This week you’ve got me again on Wednesday responding to Psalm 121, and on Friday Bec Hill responding to Psalm 139. Next Monday I’ll introduce the final week of our challenge.
May you blessed 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 13
