Dear Church,

During worship on Sunday, we will sing Psalm 15 together! (It's in bolded print in the bulletin). But don't worry, it's only 5 verses long.

The first verse reads: "O Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill?" I love the Psalmist's desire for closeness with the Lord. 

The Message version of Psalm 15 is printed below (those aren't the words we're singing though). May these words bless you this day!

Peace,

Pastor Rosy

God, who gets invited to dinner at your place? How do we get on your guest list? 
“Walk straight, act right, tell the truth.
 Don’t hurt your friend, don’t blame your neighbor; despise the despicable.
Keep your word even when it costs you, make an honest living, never take a bribe.
You’ll never get blacklisted if you live like this."
