Because I was raised in the Baptist end of Christianity, occasionally I feel like a complete outsider as a Presbyterian. On other occasions, I have an incredible sense of sadness, because there is so much richness to historic, confessional Presbyterianism that I missed out on.
I’ve mentioned an aspect of that here at Southern Reformation once before. I often want to grab the children in my little Presbyterian church and ask them if they know how lucky they are that they’re being raised on the Shorter Catechism! That is just one profound devotional aspect of being Presbyterian that I wish I could have experienced as a child.
The other is using the Psalter in worship.
I had never sung a psalm before attending seminary. I had heard that there was this strange tribe that held to something called “exclusive psalmody,” but I was completely ignorant of what that meant. Much to my surprise, I would find myself a member of this strange tribe within a couple of years!
So for today’s (belated) installment of my ongoing “Tunes” series, we have a video of the RPCNA International Psalm-Sing.
