Episode 33: Lamentations’ Hope in the Middle of Pain

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.

Everyone loves those verses in Lamentations, but when we take these hopeful passages out of their settings of crisis and loss we may actually be emptying them of their power. Scripture helps us come to terms with the world as it really is — a place where hope and pain must often coexist.

Join us for part two of our series on lament in Scripture where we dive into the book of Lamentations: its historical backdrop, literary structure, and how it can speak to the way we practice our faith today.
