Living Faith


We must stop. We must weep. We must mourn. We must honor. And we must lament.

The nation must be given the chance to mourn, lament, and remember the dead.

We urge you to pause. To lament.

Five members of the church have gotten sick from the coronavirus and two have died.

Trust in our ultimate triumph has diminished; our triumphant proclamation of victory has turned to a funeral dirge.

The church is called to lament because our country often fails to see the reality of suffering in the world.

Lament, much like our understanding of salvation, ties my suffering with those around me.

How to approach reopening your church wisely and faithfully.
