Good morning. This is Sunday 6th September, and it is the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost.
The Bells of the Old Parish Church of Peebles ring out to welcome you to the church family. Worshipping together in heart and spirit, even if having to sit at
home to do so in these strange times.
This morning we shall be considering the wisdom of the Psalmist, and the lessons to be learned from studying the Psalms.

Let the faithful exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their couches.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in
their hands, to execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
to bind their kings with fetters and their nobles with chains of iron,
to execute on them the judgment decreed. This is glory for all his faithful
ones. Praise the LORD!
