Prophetic Lament

When Soong-Chan Rah planted an urban church near Boston, he began with a series of sermons on the Book of Lamentations, a radical counter-cultural approach to ministry that later became the basis for his book Prophetic Lament.

This seminar reflects deeply on themes in this book, focusing on how local ministry context shapes prophetic lament, and probing how we can move beyond talking about lament to practicing it more faithfully. The session incorporates discussion on worship, evangelism, justice, pastoral care, church education, preaching, and the arts.
