2 years and 8 months ago, we switched our lectionary readings practice from reading the Old Testament lesson to reading the Psalm. In 4 months, we'll revert back to Old Testament lessons. When we, the worship committee and myself, made that decision, I really thought I'd find lots of Psalms to preach on...I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've based my sermon on the Psalm of the day. Not sure why that is, but today we are going to spend our time looking at Psalm 148. As David read and perhaps as you read along in the pew bible or the bulletin insert, it should have become clear what the subject of the reading is—praise!
