Lamenting is Worship Part 1 (but there’s 6 more parts – so if you like it see the related videos)
“Through Paul God tells us we should weep with those who weep. Enter redemptively with them whether we are suffering or not… How do we create a safe sanctuary for those who are suffering?”
Where is the place for this? Why are all our worship songs so “happy”? I really struggle with this in current corporate fellowship at “church”.
Background: this was Michael Card speaking back in 2009 at a Worship Summit. I was connected to him when he came to Richmond and my dear friend Tim in some way mentioned it, and I came with him. Beautifully he played the piano and worshipped God at the same time as telling the story of the Bible. For me, by far one of the best worship “experiences” I have been part of. So many of Michael’s songs resonate with me, especially El Shaddai – live with Michael Card and Amy Grant.
