Episode 11 | March 11, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for Episode 11 in our seven-week series, The Psalms of Ascent: A Lenten Pilgrimage. The word translated “ascent” means “to go up.” It gives an idea of being on a journey, moving to a higher place spiritually. In this week's episode, Lisa and Laura dive into Psalm 133, and speak openly and honestly about Christian community and family unity, and why on earth it is so hard. If you think that you are the only family on the block facing difficulties, Lisa and Laura are here to help shed light on that lie! Grab your Bible and get ready to invite Him. He is waiting to transform your heart.

Open your Heart to our key Scripture. 

Psalm 133:1–3. The Blessedness of Unity.
Behold, how good and pleasant it is
when brothers dwell in unity!
It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down upon the beard,
upon the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes!
It is like the dew of Hermon,
which falls on the mountains of Zion!
For there the Lord has commanded the blessing,
life for evermore.

Open your Bible to other Scriptures referenced in this episode. 
Deuteronomy 11:20: You shall write them on the doorpost of your house and your gates.
Deuteronomy 11:18: You shall bind them as a sign upon your hand, and fix them as an emblem on your forehead.
Romans 15:4: For what things soever were written were written for our learning; that through patience and the comfort of the Scriptures, we might have hope.
Colossians 1:17: He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

Invite Him in with this episode’s questions for reflection.
Take some time to reflect on whether you are carrying the burden of being “the glue” in your tribe. What are you responsible for doing (that is in your control)? What is out of your control and needs to be entrusted to God?

And here’s a challenge…
If you are trying to be “the glue,” memorize Colossians 1:17: He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
