Deep Calls to Deep…

June 8 @ 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM EDT

The Rev. Daphne B. Noyes

Deep Calls to Deep…Quiet Day Instructor

June 8, 2022

A Quiet Day

About the Program

Cry: What shall I cry? The voice of the Psalms is our voice: the voice of common humanity. Whether expressing joy or anger, despair or hope, gratitude or plea, the Psalms reflect and reinforce the human-divine connection with their poetic language, vivid imagery and complex, wide-ranging emotions. Like the old country store sign that advises “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it,” the Psalms offer something for everyone. The frequency with which Jesus and his followers turned to the Psalter reflects their versatility and utility.


This interactive, in-depth presentation on the Psalms includes art (both ancient and modern), music, time for contemplation and discussion, and an exploration of the structure of various types of Psalms. The program offers participants the opportunity to lose, and find, themselves in the Psalms.
