Psalm 115 begins with “The glory belongs to you, God, because of your love and loyalty.” All the rest of the way through, Psalm 115 calls us to attend to God’s love and loyalty at work in our lives. God’s blessing, God’s help, and God’s protection are the bedrock of our relationship of trust and faith. As we listen together to this Psalm and to one another in dialogue, we can discern what distractions to let go of and what affirmations to hold tightly.
