Our last invitation to BROKENNESS is inspired by Soong-Chan Rah’s excerpt originally in Prophetic Lament.
Take a moment to breathe, then pray with your breath.
Inhale: Your body, broken for us.
Exhale: Your blood, shed for us.
While they were eating, he took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, and all of them drank from it. He said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.” MARK 14:22‐24
Lamentations recognizes that hope can arise in the midst of suffering because of God’s faithfulness. Celebration can arise out of suffering, but lament is a necessary expression of that suffering. The theology of celebration will always be more attractive than the theology of suffering. But if lament were offered to a suffering world, the hope that is woven into lament offers the possibility of genuine reconciliation.
What has been the most meaningful time of lament?
What hope arose from that time?
How does your ability to gripe before God free you to hope?
Celebrate the Lord’s Supper informally with friends to remember that Jesus lived and died to make all things new. Take a moment to offer elements to one another with the words “The body of Christ, the blood of Christ”.
