Psalms for The World
We are always interested in beginnings and endings and the journey from one to the other, especially our own. Religion seems to have a lot to say about these. The wonder of the world and creation leads us to reflect on our own smallness, and our responsibilities for the environment. Thinking of the universe always makes us turn to praising God.
