Today, Bram & Sandi continue a new Friday series focused on world events and the ‘Kingdom Response’. Through scripture, word and song, we’ll put a whole new spin on what’s happening in the world, right now. Today: It has been a brutal couple of weeks in this nation and around the world. So many innocent lives lost to unimaginable violence. The latest being 19 4th graders in a small Texas town. We were already reeling from attacks on a church in California and a supermarket in New York. And nobody seems to have the vision or initiative to do anything about it. As if we are just supposed to accept it as our ‘new normal.’ It feels like the world is in full meltdown.
Yet, is that what God expects of his Body on Earth? Are we not to be able to hope when others can’t lift their heads; see what others cannot; act in faith when everyone else cowers in fear? We’ll get to those key questions in days to come. But today… Today just needs a genuine, honest, Lament. And sometimes that means we have to let others speak and sing the thoughts we are afraid to even whisper. In word and song we’ll make an honest effort to be helpful in the process of processing the impossible.
