Lent is the time when we especially reflect on the Cross of Christ. It’s a period of preparation for the Easter week, where Jesus enters Jerusalem to much fan-fair, and then is killed on Friday, and then dramatically returns from the dead!! As we particularly consider the Jesus’ shameful death, that day would have raised difficult questions about God’s goodness, the horror of judgment, and what kind of hope can be had in such circumstances, where are God’s promises? All of these themes are also contained in the Old Testament book Lamentations which we will explore over the next five weeks (until palm Sunday).

  • No Comfort, Lamentations 1 (Feb 18th)
  • Wrath, Lamentations 2 (Feb 25th)
  • Hope, Lamentations 3 (March 3rd)
  • Siege and Salvation, Lamentations 4 (March 10th)
  • Restore Us, Lamentations 5 (March 17th)
