January 2019 Sermon Series: Brutally Honest With God, A cry for help in times of suffering and/or adversity.
“Rouse yourself! Why do you sleep, O Lord? … Why do you forget our affliction?” (Psalm 44:23-24).
G. Brooke Lester, Assistant Professor at Garrett Theological Seminary writes; “If many of us have been taught to put on a happy face, to let a smile be our umbrella, to keep our complaints to ourselves, then the Hebrew Bible offers a welcome corrective in the complaint psalms, or psalms of lament. Lament, as a genre of psalm, is not the same as lamentation over the dead. In a lament psalm, a petitioner addresses God directly on the occasion of some calamity.”
Come join us as we explore a different cry each week in the first month of the new year.
