This Week’s Theme: Lament

Adele Ahlberg Calhoun says that to lament is “to take my complaints, anger, sufferings, frustrations and heartaches to God.” (The Spiritual Disciplines Handbook)

And he meets us there.

We realize that following up a whole week celebrating our birthday with the topic of lament might seem strange. But that’s life, isn’t it? Things don’t always flow in predictable patterns. Seasons aren’t always tied up with pretty bows on neat packages.

Have you written a lament? In those times of carrying your heartache and suffering to God, what has encouraged and sustained you?

We hope the conversations this week will resonate with your heart, no matter what season you are in. Thank you for walking this journey with us!
