Mercy Hill Sunday Gathering - May 29, 2022


Graphic - My Soul Refuses To Be Comforted

It's been one of those weeks, hasn't it? 

With wave after wave of bad news coming from our news feeds and social media, this world can feel pretty dark at times. 

The ancient psalmists knew dark days. In fact, these divinely inspired poets give us permission to put our grief and anger and frustration into words and to pour them out in complaint before God--honest-to-God unfiltered words as we process our pain before God.

We're going to look at one of those Psalms this week, Psalm 77, a sacred song of sorrow. In it, the poet captures the sentiment that many of us are feeling, "My soul refuses to be comforted." 

Join us this Sunday as we gather to learn more about how to move forward by moving in and through lament as disciples of Jesus who is the light of the world. 

It's not the only thing we can do by any means, but it is the one essential thing we should do. As one writer put it, 

"Lament is the language of a people who believe in God's sovereignty but live in a world of tragedy." 

We hope you can be with us this Sunday at 10am at the Hilton Garden Inn.
