0402 - LAMENT in Indianapolis, IN (w/ Mark Vroegop)


Overview: "Can wicked rulers be allied with you, those who frame injustice by statute?" (Psalm 94:20)

"Lament is a prayer in pain that leads to trust." Why is understanding songs of sorrow so important for our thinking about race? Why is lament so important that a third of Psalms are lament? Join Isaac Adams and Mark Vroegop as they answer these questions:

  • What does the Scripture teach about the grace of lament?

  • What is the importance of Christians understanding race? How does understanding the grace of lament apply to the issues of race?

  • What about colorblindness that some people read into Colossians 3:11?

  • What is the distinction between repentance and remorse, and why does it matter for the conversation on race?

  • How have you used civil rights trips within your congregation?

  • Why does it matter that your church looks like your community?

  • How do you think through urban renewal and foreign missions?
