A Lenten Study of Lamentations

Lamentations is a both a book of loss and a cry for comfort and hope. Its pages acknowledge pain, suffering, grief and falling short and give us a message of hope, compassion, and justice that God speaks even in times when God seems silent.

“I believe that the Bible alone is the answer to all our questions and that to receive an answer from it, we only need to ask with persistence and a little courage. One cannot read the bible as we read other books.  One must be ready to really ask questions… Only when we wait expectantly before it for the answer does it give it to us.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  1. This 6-week series was wonderful. I truly appreciate all the work in planning and preparing it for us. I was not expecting to learn so much or receive so much insight because the only request of us was to be there. What a gift!

    Always arriving late becaue of my work hours, I would sit with my bible on one knee and my bowl of soup on the other, listening to the reading and the conversation and being in the presence with my brothers and sisters in Christ in this way. There was nothing to do but receive God’s blessing of comfort. Thank you…
