Holy Words. During this season of Lent we are entering into a series exploring the Psalms of Lament. Most of us don’t have tools to worship and pray through the fullness of human life. The Psalms of Lament give us freedom and tools to live in all the complexity of human life. Like the Psalms of Lament, the season of Lent challenges our sentimentality by drawing us into the temptation, suffering, and death of Jesus––and in turn our own. And like the Psalms of Lament, the season of Lent shows that even the hard of our lives are Holy Words and that God, in Jesus, literally entered into it with us, to be present––body to body.
