The Psalms Project

One of our first group-wide projects is The Psalms Project. Use your artistic talents to create a piece that reflects or comments upon a Psalm in the Bible. There are 150 Psalms to choose from, so you have many options. Create a dance, play/skit, song, sculpture, painting, performance piece... there is no limit on artistic genre. You can post lyrics, poetry, or links to pictures or video of your piece in the comments section for this blog post. If we get a good enough response to this, we would like to put together a performance night or an exhibit. So get creating!

Psalm 119:33-40, from The Message

God, teach me lessons for living
so I can stay the course.
Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—
my whole life one long, obedient response.
Guide me down the road of your commandments;
I love traveling this freeway!
Give me a bent for your words of wisdom,
and not for piling up loot.
Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,
invigorate me on the pilgrim way.
Affirm your promises to me—
promises made to all who fear you.
Deflect the harsh words of my critics—
but what you say is always so good.
See how hungry I am for your counsel;
preserve my life through your righteous ways!

OK, I'm working on a photograph to represent a psalm. What do I do with it when I finish? Is there an exhibit somewhere sometime?

If you have an artwork you would like to submit, you can e-mail us at epistrophy@aol.com and we will get it posted. We haven't had enough submissions yet to really look into a gallery show, but if enough people are interested we will get the ball rolling!
