Daring to Hope: Experiencing the Grace of Lament
The last few years have been hard on all of us.
People across Northern Ireland and beyond are often facing an avalanche of psychological, emotional, and spiritual pain as they journey through life.
Carrying wounds, tears, doubts, pains, and sorrow, perhaps because of our nation’s troubled past, or due to the impact of COVID-19, and even for myriad of other unique and personal reasons, nothing can simply be swept away or ignored.
People need to be given time and space to acknowledge all that they have endured. It is up to the Church and organisations like Bible Society NI, to journey alongside these people, providing the means by which they can navigate their way towards the help and hope of Jesus.
This is what Daring to Hope: Experiencing the Grace of Lament is all about.
Through combinations of video teaching, group discussion, personal reflection, and more, Daring to Hope: Experiencing the Grace of Lament will take participants on a journey through Scripture, to encounter, practically explore, and own in our lives, the four elements of lament so often present:
- Turning to God
- Bringing our complaint
- Asking boldly for help
- Daring to hope (trust) in God
