Grief and loss are familiar in these days of the coronavirus pandemic. Pain, injustice, and suffering are knocking at our doors in ways we cannot ignore. The Bible shows us a way to meet this deep pain and suffering through the practice of lament. In this toolkit, you’ll find a host of resources to help you and your church understand what lament is and how to practice lament. As we lament individually and in community, let us be joined together through both our hope-filled expectations and our calls for God to act swiftly to bring forth God’s kingdom this day.
Lament Toolkit: Understanding and Practicing Biblical Lament
Our brothers and sisters at FaithForward.org (a blog of the Reformed Church in America) have gathered a number of videos, podcasts, articles, books and other resources about lament to help guide you and your congregations during this COVID-19 time.
