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 9: We will examine our current social reality and why lament is missing in our context while being desperately needed. We will examine the historical context of the book of Lamentations and compare with our nation’s history and seek Biblical wisdom in how we understand our current social reality.
