We are not good at lament. Our suburban Christian faith is rarely resilient enough to survive significant suffering, sickness, disappointment, struggle, or setback. I know a lot of Christians who have been through challenges and put on a brave face whilst privately experiencing the erosion of their hope, joy, and faith. The inability of Christians to lament, to question, and to grieve has made many atheists. It is easier to watch Netflix than to process our grief and anger.
“To deny our sorrow doesn’t make us happy it makes us numb.” Brian Zahnd.
