We are continuing our series of reflections on the Psalms. Each day we will upload a new reflection to the website. We hope and pray that you will find them helpful and that they bring hope during this season. Click on these buttons to read the text of the psalm or listen to a recording of it. You can also listen to the reflection using the audio player below.
Psalm 133 praises the power of the unity of God’s people. As I read it I am also reminded of Ephesians 4, where Paul encourages the Ephesians to unite around Christ. Unity is not the same as uniformity, but is the power of God’s people knowing and being equipped to serve God and each other. During lockdown we have discovered new gifts in lots of people through technology, editing, pastoral care and more! The church is the body of Christ – when we are united around Jesus we can do extraordinary things in the world. Perhaps this pandemic is a reminder that, whilst our different churches may worship in different ways we all have a call to become more like Jesus and reach out to the community around us.
God, please help us to find Spirit filled unity.
