LAMENT

“A passionate expression of grief or sorrow.“ The Christian tradition gives us the practice of lament. Please find the service of lament in the style of Taize’ to use with your congregation to mourn all that has been lost and shared communal grief. 
 
Use the interactive lament individually or in small groups.
