How often do you allow yourself to lament? Can you share your lament with others within the church? Can your share your lament with God?
As we enter Lent, please join us in considering the importance of lament with our guide Dr Cathy Ross.
There are so many things in our world worth lamenting right now: climate crisis, inequality among people, poverty, racism, threats of war.
We know that at times Jesus wept and expressed sorrow, and as we focus on his time in the wilderness, up to his persecution and death, lament seems appropriate.
Through this study, you will look at lament as complaint, lament as resistance, justice and innovation and lament as newness and hope.
You are invited to Lament for Lent with CMS. Together we will discover its meaning for our lives.
Due to popular demand, we have no more printed Lament for Lent booklets, so we have made it available as a PDF for download. If you appreciate the resource, please consider making a donation to our Lent Appeal.
