Learning to Lament Mini-Retreat
We all need to learn to Lament, especially when we find ourselves, perhaps even right now, in the midst of the deep dark clouds of suffering, pain, loss, and even despair. There is a deeper mercy to be found when we discover the grace of Lament. Lament is a prayer in pain that leads to trust. Biblical Lament is how Christians grieve. It is also how to help hurting people. Join us and invite others as together we Learn to Lament for His glory and our joy!
Please register each person attending to let us know you are coming!
