A Word of Lament

Mar 27, 2022    Jim LaBarr

There's something powerful about someone's last words. And that is especially true of the final words Jesus spoke from the cross. The gospel writers recorded seven sayings of Jesus from the cross, seven last words, and these sayings are the focus of our Lent series Last Words. As we prepare our hearts for the celebration of resurrection on Easter Sunday, we are taking a closer look at these final words Jesus spoke before he died on the cross and discover their significance for us today. This week we reflect on Jesus' agonizing cry: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Have you ever felt like God has abandoned you? As though God has forgotten you? Discover how to keep faith even when it feels like God is absent.
