for the week of 8 September 2019

Psalm Writing Workshop Notes
Notes from the recent Psalm Writing Workshop are now available here.  Have you thought about writing your own psalm? Many Psalms follow a pattern which can be replicated. We believe there is some amazing talent in BCUC and would love to give the opportunity for the congregation to contribute their own Psalms to a booklet we will publish as a Christmas gift to all. We would love to see your contributions.   Use these notes to get ideas and learn techniques for writing your psalm.
