Psalms of Ascent

Rev Melinda Cousins reflects on the Psalms of Ascent, particularly Psalm 120-122 in a manner that evokes emotion and imagination encouraging God’s people to live as people of God in the presence of God in unity. Psalm 120 is a psalm of dislocation and distress, what it is like to be a stranger in a strange land. Psalm 121 is a song of the journey – “I lift my eyes to the hills…” Psalm 122 is a Psalm of Jerusalem; we’re not actually there yet but will sing as though already there.
