Title: A Song of Joy
Scripture: Psalm 126:1-6
Speaker: Nathan Miller,

>> Joy grows best in a field of tears.
>> Joy needs history more than distraction.
>> Joy needs history more than distraction.
Are you remembering or are you self-medicating?
The enormous entertainment industry in America is a sign of the depletion of joy in our culture. Society is a bored, gluttonous king employing a court jester to divert it after an overindulgent meal. But that kind of joy never penetrates our lives, never changes our basic constitution.
- Eugene Peterson, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
>> Joy is a mysterious gift more than a pursuit.
>> Joy is a mysterious gift more than a pursuit.
Are you asking or are you chasing?
>> Joy is a promise even when it feels impossible.
>> Joy is a promise even when it feels impossible.
Are you planting or are you despairing?
When we rejoice while suffering it is because of some good that is ours despite the suffering (for instance, God’s character, deeds, and the promise of redemption) or because of a good the suffering will produce (for instance, a child for a mother in childbirth). Put more abstractly, 'joy despite' is possible on account of 'joy because.' - Miroslav Volf
