Going Forward | Dr. Soong-Chan Rah
Overview: Our time together will focus on the lost practice of lament in the current iteration of the American Church. We will examine why lament is a necessary practice given the challenges of our current social reality. We will focus our study on the book of Lamentations. Much of the content will be drawn from Soong-Chan Rah’s book, Prophetic Lament: A Call for Justice in Troubled Times (IVP Books, 2015).
May 16: We will explore the theology of lament and how lament provides a counter-narrative to the dysfunctional, broken narratives in our society. What theological principles emerge from our study of the practice of lament as expressed in the book of Lamentations.
