From the Well Podcast: Episode 7 — Songs of Hope and Lament
Welcome to From the Well, a new podcast from The Academy for Spiritual Formation®, which draws from the rich spiritual content gathered and shared at various Two-Year and Five-Day Academies throughout the years.
Faced with recent tragedy and violence against African Americans and their places of worship, some have attempted to make sense of these events by forcing them to fit into belief systems of stock answers and certainty. In this episode, we offer an alternative to that approach by exploring the practice of lament as a creative and hopeful response to hurt and injustice featuring segments from Luther Smith and Dale Clem. Join us as we ask - how can our wails of grief and songs of mourning build the Kingdom of God?
