“Only with eyes that have cried”: Lament for Lent

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. 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.
