The ancient hymns we call Psalms are well over 2000 years old. They were written in very different times from our own when humans could travel at the speed of a camel – not at the speed of sound. But these songs have stood the test of time for they address many of the problems we still face: violence, injustice, anger – and bewilderment. Why do the wicked prosper? Where is God when we suffer? In this 5-session York Course, Archbishop Stephen Cottrell – a prolific and popular author – reflects on the psalms in general (and five psalms in particular). He invites us to join him as he does so.

The psalms form the backbone of so much of the worship in the cathedral, and it’s easy to take them for granted.  Why not find out more and reflect with others about some of the depths within them.

Cost: Suggested donation of £20 for the course plus £3.50 for the course booklet (essential).
