Lament and the Book of Lamentations, this Sunday, March 13, 2016. Following the 11am service, we continue the Lenten study of Lamentations, led by Shana Kaplanov, GTS Seminarian. Laments give voice to experiences of loss, pain, and tragedy. The Book of Lamentations is a collection of five poems of lament about the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 587 BCE. The following link will download a copy of the Book of Lamentations that we will use as our guide in this Lenten Series to reflect on how lament appears in our lives. And how it is used within the context of modern tragedies we experience and read about in the news.
