Praise and Thanksgiving In the Psalms Modern Cloister

In this episode, we take a closer look at praise and thanksgiving psalms, discussing both genres of psalms, their differences and areas of overlaps, and ways they have been and continue to be used by Christians and the church. This includes reading select verses from a handful of our favorite psalms. This is the 3rd episode in our series on the psalms.  In the 1st episode in the series, we provided an overview of the psalms, including their history, organization, difficulties, themes, language style and poetic nature, along with our personal stories in coming to love and appreciate the psalms. In the 2nd episode, we discussed how the psalms were used historically within the church and shared practical insights into how to use the psalms today in both corporate and private worship and prayer., including several on-air, live examples of praying and singing the psalms.
