Sunday Reflection.  Exiles#4.

We continue our series called Exiles, with part four, Exiled in Assyria and Babylon.  We look at Lamentation 1, and learn from the ancient hebrew people the spiritual discipline and art of lament.  When bad things happen, it is ok to be sad, and we should engage with God in a struggle to figure out how to make meaning out of bad things.  When we do this, we may discover a God who sits with us in our grief, and reveals to us the mystery of God's promises for our lives.
