The Power of Lament for the Church

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


The Reformed Institute will hold a morning seminar and worship event April 29 with Dr. David Gambrell of the Office of Theology and Worship for the PCUSA. It features The Power of Lament for the Church, especially in relation to our history with indigenous peoples and their lands. Gambrell will explore Biblical, theological and liturgical forms of lament for the Christian life. Participants will learn the forms of lament in Scripture, church prayers, and hymns. They will also experience worship practices that they can adapt for their own congregations and devotions in relation to the church’s troubled history, but also in relation to personal tragedy, communal injustice, and more.

As Mark Charles said, “recovering lament is essential for the church to move forward” on past injuries and misdeeds with marginalized people and the planet.
