Happy Families

Studies in the life of David

Preparing for God"Happy Families – there are advantages to studying Bible characters. Truth comes to life because we identify ourselves with their struggles and successes. However one of the dangers of studying a Bible character is that we superimpose their culture onto our culture and their actions onto our actions. In David's case – we will probably never fight to the death a 3 metre giant or be hunted as a fugitive in the desert for 10 years. David is famous for being a shepherd, killing Goliath, a wonderfully expressive songwriter, an adulterous relationship, and a warrior king. There is, though, a sub-plot woven through the narrative. His family life, throughout his life, was dysfunctional and far from happy!" We are covering a lot of ground in the three messages.

The series was made up of three parts:

  • David – the early years 1 Samuel 16 – 1 Samuel 21:9
  • David – the wilderness years 1 Samuel 21 – 2 Samuel 5
  • David – the palace years 2 Samuel 5 – 1 Kings 2:12

You can now catch up on this short series which took place at Cathays during summer 2016.

A Message for AllThe great strength and beauty of the Psalms lies in the fact that they appeal to the whole person; they demand a total response. The Psalms inform our intellect, arouse our emotions, stimulate our imaginations and direct our wills. So as we read and meditate upon the Psalms over these next Sunday evenings  we'll find an enriching menu of nourishing food that speaks directly to our situations in life even today.
