Psalms and Lament

This week, the topic is "Worshipping and Singing in Community: Psalms  Lament and Suffering" 
Here is a slightly different version of this week's presentation, filmed for an online class. It's a  multipart  video (7 parts, but only a half-hour total! Watch it in order) by Dave Wainscott (and a few friends) on Psalms and Lament.  Watch carefully if you need to review and take notes, as you will be responding in Forum 1.

Part 1 is below  Listen to the song which is part 1.  Open the lyrics here, and read  along as it plays.  In a way, treat it like other songs  (and Scriptures) we have used in this class: as a text which calls for context and  your Three Worlds skills of interpretation.  Do your best to discern  the main characters , genre, backstory, storyline etc.  (It's easier than Philemon!).  But also be prepared to process how it made you feel.
