Before we dive into Esther tomorrow, we thought it’d be helpful for our church to read the above article on strong churches learning how to lament after reading through the book of Lamentations. Too often, churches publically proclaim the victory and triumph of the Lord while publically pretending that suffering and hardships are not a part of God’s plan or future. Of course, anyone who reads the Bible or in general lives life knows that’s not true. This is a great article revealing how we as a church can balance both truths.
