Formed by God’s Word- Ascent Psalms

A collection of 15 Psalms bear the same title, ‘A Song of Ascents’ (Psalms 120-134). Rehearsing the journey of the Israelites to the place of worship “in the house of the LORD,” these Psalms provide opportunities for prayerful meditation on movements in the life of faith today; from individual disorientation to communal worship, from alienation to belonging, from dire affliction to deliverance, from quiet waiting to rejoicing. The Formed by the Word workshops are designed for study as well as for prayerful reflection with a view towards being formed by God’s Word, not merely informed.

Space is limited to 12 participants.

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
