Show Notes
At the center of the Book of Lamentations, there's a long fantastic personal prayer. The author is hurt by God. The author loves God. The author tries to convince himself to trust God, but God doesn't seem to work that way anymore. Lamentations 3 shows off the cognitive dissonance between judgement and grace, fear and hope, the same cognitive dissonance than makes Christianity relevant.
