The Psalms are not only the “Hymnbook” of the Church, the Book of Psalms is the “healing” book we often turn to in times of trouble. One reason the Psalms speak to us is because they speak honestly about the human condition. There are Psalms that not only bring comfort and inspiration, there are Psalms that allow us to vent our anger and lament our sadness.
We are going to look at these Psalms of Lament. They are so powerful because they allow us to heal the deep hurts within us. C. S Lewis once said, “We must lay before Him what is in us, not what ought to be in us.” Please join us for our five week study of the Psalms of Lament as we talk about the times the writer of the Psalms laid before God what was in their heart:
Tuesday mornings, 11:00 a.m. – February 28, March 6, 13, 20, 27 in the church Parlor.
There are two books you might find useful: The Psalms of Lament by Ann Weems and The Message of the Psalms by Walter Bruggemann.
