Feasting on the Verbs – The Verbs of Psalm 107

Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
     As I prepare to preach on Psalm 107 this upcoming Sunday at Silver Creek Presbyterian Church, I thought that it would be helpful to map out the verbs (and their “owners”) in the psalm.  Below is the result of my findings.  What a feast!  I welcome your comments and insights!

                       Grace and peace,
                       Stephen
