“Collapse” is a 5-week series exploring the book of Lamentations. This series explores the range of human responses to pain, difficulty, sin and correction. Lamentations goes into the dark places of human suffering. It probes the depths of human despair - guilt, shame, anger, violence, death - and the often seeming silence of God in such moments. It is a book of complete vulnerability before both the world and God. Yet it is also an expression of ultimate, desperate reliance on God, his goodness, mercy and promises. observing God’s judgement of Judah, Lamentations explores the character of God, and His patient love for us.
