Summer Advance

For the edification of the Cornerstone body, we are encouraging our people to read through the book of Psalms this summer, and we are encouraging all of our heads of households, including single moms, to take their families through at least some of these psalms along the way (psalms of your choosing from the reading schedule). Beyond that, we encourage you to look for opportunities (wherever possible) to read through psalms aloud together with others. 

“The book of Psalms is a compendium of all divinity;
a common store of medicine for the soul,
a universal magazine of good doctrines,
profitable to everyone in all conditions.”

Basil of Caesarea, AD 330-379

The Plan. The book of Psalms contains 150 psalms, which are divided into 90 readings on the reading schedule (on the reverse side of this page). If you simply take time to read each day’s assigned reading, then you will have read through the book of Psalms by the end of the first day of September!

Two Resources. We commend to you a recently published book by Timothy Keller, entitled, The Songs of Jesus: A Year of Daily Devotions in the Psalms, which features devotional readings that you may find helpful for yourself and useful for your family.  Additionally, Ben Patterson’s book, entitled, God’s Prayer Book: The Power and Pleasure of Praying the Psalms contains helpful meditations on various psalms in the Psalter.  Both of these resources are available from Amazon.
