Broken Psalms: Expressions of Grief and Loss
There are days when we just want to pull the covers over our head and not have to be anywhere. Or do anything. Or think.
We feel as though a sea of sorrow has raged into our lives. We are desperate. Desparing. Sad. Confused.
God, where are you? God, how can I carry on? What do you want from me?
Sometimes we hear Him bring words to mind: I love you. I will never leave you or forsake you. You belong to me. I carry you close to my heart.
Other times we hear nothing. Some days we open our Bible and gain strength. We fight the temptation to believe the lies that God does not care or than He is tired of our tears.
We remember that He has made us and knows us better than we know ourselves. He loves us with a perfect and everlasting love.
Broken Psalms: Expressions of Grief and Loss is a workshop where the psalms are used as a method of dealing with our grief and losses. In this workshop we'll take a fresh look at the psalms and create our own. We'll share from the depths of our hearts and discover how writing our heartache helps us to heal.
