Finding the Words...The Language of Lament

Finding the Words...The Language of Lament

Wednesdays through July 29, 7 - 8:30 pm
The study will be conducted via Zoom, an online meeting platform.
Links for joining the meeting are provided below.

There are times when it is hard to find words to describe our feelings. This is especially true when we are angry or upset. Anger and despair do not seem compatible with our Christian walk, so we tend to stifle such feelings and downplay the inner anguish within us. Doing so can lead to further harm, for such feelings do not always fade—particularly in such trying times as these!

The healthy response is to share our feelings with God, to get them out so God can heal us. Fortunately, the Bible offers plenty of examples for us—words we can use when we have trouble finding them ourselves—they are called laments.

Laments provide a language for us to name uncomfortable feelings, like when our worlds turn upside down, and to even shout out to God (or even at God) when things are not right. Join Pastor Matt as we explore biblical laments as a guide for expressing painful feelings to God…as a pathway toward wholeness and peace. Four virtual sessions on Zoom, Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 pm, July 8 through 29.
