“REDISCOVERING LAMENT ” | 26 March 2021 | 18:30 GMT
It is significant that the Bible has one whole book dedicated to lament. It is also significant that in the collection of songs that form the heart of worship in the Bible, the most common of the psalms is that of lament. Especially for those of us who have been born in the West, the language of lament has not been one which we have used often – or perhaps often felt the need for. The fact that for a large proportion of Christians in the West, life is generally reasonably comfortable, seems to have led to our losing our ability to deal with suffering biblically. In other words, our theology of suffering is poor. This webinar will explore how we might recapture the biblical genre of lament for today’s Europe.
