About this Episode

For the people of Israel to move into and begin to process their grief requires the courage to name their emotions, to identify the source of their lament. In this passage, the writer of Lamentations intensifies the expression of his own grief while calling the people of Jerusalem to turn in prayer to find comfort in God, their destroyer. How does God comfort us in our sorrow today when we feel that he could have done something differently to alleviate our sorrow? Join us as we learn to name our griefs before God from our study of Lamentations 2, “Comfort from the Destroyer."
