The Psalmist's Cry

We all live in a constant state of denial. Culture tells us all problems are solvable, or at least manageable; we simply need to try (or buy) the right solution. Our self-help, pop-a-pill culture is prone to masking symptoms and calling that mask a cure. But as long as we deny our pain, we lose the danger of the Gospel-the part where we give up control and allow God’s mystery to unfold in our lives-and in doing so, we lose the depth of its goodness.

In Psalmist’s Cry, Walter Brueggemann explores Psalms as scripts for lament-guides for how to express feelings honestly, in ways normally not permitted or expected within Christian community. In this 5-week study, discover the fullness of God when we allow our lives to become about him healing us and not about us controlling or managing our way through life.

Discussion guide and three bonus films included.
