Today, Steve Boul speaks in week 1 of our series called “Lament: Bringing our Sorrow to God.” This is the introductory message into this new series as we explore what lament really is. We will use the Psalms as our guide, as well as the book of Lamentations.
Lament is a Language for loss, Solution for silence, Category for complaints, Framework for feelings, Process for our pain, and a Way to worship. We cry together as a church – Pain of illness, broken relationships, abuse, injustice, unmet expectations, miscarriage, death of a child or a parent, suicide. We use the words of Psalm 22 as our cry: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
We hope this message encourages you and helps you know Jesus in a more real way. You can find the full sermon notes and other resources at our website. Subscribe to us at our YouTube channel, on Apple Podcasts or on Spotify. You can also visit us at Facebook or Instagram.
