Lament | hoping for help

Join us next Sunday as we begin an eight week study through the book of Lamentations. Throughout this journey we will talk about the topic of pain from a corporate/community setting and what to do when our pain does not resolve quickly. This series will answer some questions like where do you go when pain is widespread? What do you do when your pain seems like it will not end? How can you help someone who is in the middle of a season of lament? We would love to see you take up Jesus call to all those who are weak, hurting, and in pan to come find rest in Him.

This study of the book of Lamentations is intended to look at the concept of pain, and to look at it from two different perspectives: 1) To view pain in a corporate or community setting and 2) To consider what we should do when pain does not resolve quickly.

In other words, where do you go when pain is widespread and when it does not look to end soon? What language do you use? What biblical categories are available to you? How do you pray? What should you think? How can you help someone who is in the middle of a season of lament? These are some of the questions that we will try to address over the course of eight weeks.
