A Service of Lament by Pastor Jack & Rev. Cora
Laments in our scriptures are expressions of deep regret, grief, and sorrow. They are not just the wailing of humanity in times of trouble but words that spur us toward action and trust in God’s presence. Laments remember our afflictions and ask the questions of why? Laments remember that God is real and clings to the promise that there is always hope. While Laments express deep sorrow, grief, and regret, they always end with a word of praise for God and trust in God’s goodness and love for humanity. Based on Psalm 42.
