Welcome to each of you for coming here and as we say in the South, "Bless your heart!"

You might not be feeling Southern or blessed, happy or content with life. You might be aching and pondering and wondering how you will live to see tomorrow.

I've been there. I've known and know anguish and all its many faces.

I've wrestled with God, doubted and cried out. My son Daniel was four when he died from cancer treatments. Losing him has impacted my life.

Since then I've traveled on rocky paths. I've been through many heartaches. I've spent time seeking God and finding him to be mysterious, yet faithful and merciful.

Broken Psalms is a place where we'll be looking at grief and loss through the lens of the biblical psalms. We'll acknowledge anguish and joy, suffering and salvation.
