Wes Anderson’s movie, Moonrise Kingdom features a number of books that one of the lead characters has in their possession. None of the titles actually that exist.

A further book is introduced that is also made up, but has achieved a level of internet fame, with a modest cottage industry producing items that feature its front cover.

Continuing to feature songs from Matt Searles’ Psalms For Congregations Vol. 2.
My Saviour Christ Is With Me is a version of Psalm 27.
It is set the tune How Can I Keep From Singing, which I’ve been recently obsessed with.

The Lord’s my light – I shall not fear
The Lord is my salvation
My tower of strength; my God is near
In every situation
Though enemies on every side
And armies rise against me
I have a stronghold for my life:
My saviour Christ is with me
One thing I ask, and I would seek
To gaze upon his beauty
To dwell with God and never leave
And see him in his glory
He hides me in his holy tent
When troubles rise around me
Here on this rock I stand secure:
My saviour Christ is with me
Give ear O Lord, and hear my cry
Pour out your grace and mercy
I seek your face with all my heart
Don’t turn your goodness from me
O God my help, forsake my not
When others turn against me
But you O Lord preserve my life
My saviour Christ is with me
Teach me your way O Lord my God
Make level paths before me
My enemies with lying tongues
Do violence against me
I’ll see the goodness of the Lord
Each day that I am living
Be strong my soul and wait for God
My saviour Christ is with me

Words: (c) 2022 Matt Searles.

Chapter 19 – Of the Law of God (Cont.) (Paragraphs 6-7)

VI. Although true believers be not under the law as a covenant of works, to be thereby justified or condemned; yet is it of great use to them, as well as to others; in that, as a rule of life, informing them of the will of God and their duty, it directs and binds them to walk accordingly; discovering also the sinful pollutions of their nature, hearts, and lives; so as, examining themselves thereby, they may come to further conviction of, humiliation for, and hatred against sin; together with a clearer sight of the need they have of Christ, and the perfection of his obedience. It is likewise of use to the regenerate, to restrain their corruptions, in that it forbids sin, and the threatenings of it serve to show what even their sins deserve, and what afflictions in this life they may expect for them, although freed from the curse thereof threatened in the law. The promises of it, in like manner, show them God’s approbation of obedience, and what blessings they may expect upon the performance thereof; although not as due to them by the law as a covenant of works: so as a man’s doing good, and refraining from evil, because the law encourages to the one, and deters from the other, is no evidence of his being under the law, and not under grace.
VII. Neither are the forementioned uses of the law contrary to the grace of the gospel, but do sweetly comply with it: the Spirit of Christ subduing and enabling the will of man to do that freely and cheerfully, which the will of God, revealed in the law, requires to be done.
