This Sunday, we'll be exploring a somewhat lesser-known book of the Bible - Lamentations. While its name suggests sorrow and grief, we'll discover how its laments ultimately point us to the suffering of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
In the midst of Jerusalem's desolation after the invasion of Babylon, the prophet Jeremiah pours out his heart in anguish over the city's ruin. Yet even here, we'll see echoes of Christ's own affliction on the cross as He bore the weight of our sins.
This Second Sunday in Lent, we'll be guided through Lamentations 1 to not only lament our sinful condition, but to find hope and healing in the "Man of Sorrows" who was pierced for our transgressions.
I hope you'll join us for this journey from lament to rejoicing in the finished work of our Suffering Saviour.
Join us at 11:00am to find Mercy In The Way Of Sorrow.
