In Reupholstered Psalms, Greg Kennedy offers us 50 psalms “sung new” that speak to our current experience: consumerism, terrorism, climate change, forced migration, the extinction of species, intolerance… and the list goes on. The substanceand structure – the bones – of the original works remain, but the outer appearance has been transformed. May the new styles, textures and colours of these psalms lead you into prayer and closer to God through your relationship to the divine, to yourself, to others and to creation.
