Summit: Sorrow, Hope, and Joy

Sorrow, Hope, and Joy: Life in the Mountains and Valleys of the Psalms

This year at Summit, we seek reminders for how the spiritual foundation of praying, singing, and meditation can help contemporary disciples flourish during times of sorrow, hope, and joy. Although sometimes neglected in the 21st century, the Psalter transforms lives by bringing God’s kindness and mercy into our world. Within its pages we encounter words, music, and emotions for our private and communal worship times. Just as the Psalms were the hymn book for Jesus and his followers thousands of years ago, those of us who gather at Summit 2019 will examine the many ways in which these ancient texts provide a steady, sustained foundation of godly living today.

You won’t want to miss the in-depth full-day pathways, worship gatherings, opportunities to connect with other Christians from all over the world, and much more.

Gather with us on September 15-18, 2019, our 113th annual Summit! Visit acusummit.org for full details and to register.
