Exiled #4.  It's ok to be sad.  The spiritual discipline of lament

Sometimes life can be tough, and we find ourselves fighting with feelings of sadness and grief.  Our culture tends to devalue these feelings, and encourages us to push them away or push them deep down inside.  Matt and Merry take a look at some of the laments that appear in the Bible, chat about dealing with our negative emotions, and the importance of praying our laments as a spiritual practice.  Along the way, they talk about running 5k’s, having team spirit, and the soar muscles that come with both.
