Laments and Love Songs: Singing of Pain and Hope in the Church Today

July 12, 201911:00 am11:50 am
Many churches enjoy singing praise songs, and there is certainly a place for them in our worship. But what about laments? The Psalms are full of the laments of the people of God. The world is full of reasons for lament— for crying out to God with our sorrow and pain. Yet laments often end with a glimpse of hope; the world will not always be filled with suffering and injustice. Join us for some reflection on the Bible, the hymns of the church— old and new— and our reasons for singing both our laments and our hope in God.
