Deep calls to deep

Deep calls to deep
in the roar of your waterfalls;
all your waves and breakers
have swept over me.

8 By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.

-from Psalm 42

The Spiritual Formation Group at Shelfari is starting a study of Foster's Celebration of Discipline, which for many of us is a re-read. I'm using Foster's Study Guide to "lead" discussion. I put "lead" in quotes because I'm not so concerned with who follows, but that I am more accountable. Foster recommends this psalm to get started and all the images of water make my heart skip a beat, because it is images of water that have spoken most to me from scripture. (can I say "roared"?)
