Powlison on Suffering with the Psalmist
Last week, the Lord granted me the privilege to attend the Worship God '08 conference hosted by Sovereign Grace Ministries and Bob Kauflin. The conference was wonderfully cross-centered, full of joy, and instructive. I appreciate those brothers making the time beneficial to music neophytes like myself. The conference audio is posted here.
And I'd especially like to draw your attention to David Powlison's sermon, "Enduring Hardship with the Psalmist." I'm familiar with Powlison's very helpful written works, but this was the first time I've heard him speak. In the very laid back (he effortlessly preached in a Hawaiin shirt and sandals; not even the guy from Cayman could pull that off!), calm, and instructive tone I imagine from his books, he led us through an overview of many psalms and their relation to one another, opened up Psalm 28 in detail, and showed us Christ throughout. If folks are thinking about suffering, trying to comfort someone who is suffering, or simply want to understand many of the Psalms better, this is a great talk. Highly recommend it.
