    A Litany Combining Psalm 22 with The New York Times

    For this litany David Gambrell took Psalm 22, a traditional psalm for Good Friday, and interspersed it with quotes from The New York Times (Good Friday, March 21, 2008). Consider putting together a similar service using current news articles. You could use two readers—one for the psalm quotes (in italics) and one for the news quotes (roman)—or use many readers by having
    different readers for each of the news quotes.


    Psalm 22. For the director of music. To the tune of “The Doe of the Morning.” A psalm of David.
