Culture tells us all problems are solvable, or at least manageable; we simply need to try (or buy) the right solution. Our self-help, pop-a-pill culture is prone to masking symptoms and calling that mask a cure.

But as long as we deny our pain, we lose the danger of the gospel - the part where we give up control and allow God's mystery to unfold in our lives - and in doing so, we lose the depth of its goodness.

In Psalmist's Cry, Walter Brueggemann explores Psalms as scripts for lament - guides for how to express feelings honestly, in ways normally not permitted or expected within Christian community. In this 5-week study, discover the fullness of God when we allow our lives to become about him healing us and not about us controlling or managing our way through life.
