Q: What is lament?

A: An honest and raw falling towards God with our sorrows.

1: How did hearing Naomi's lament strike you? Were you bothered by it? Comforted?

2: What did we mean when we said, "Naomi was not struggling because she had bad theology. She was struggling because she had good theology."

3: What is one example of "deep loss" that you have experienced or are experiencing? What did or has your prayer sounded like in response?

4: Tell us about a time when someone helpfully gave you the space to lament. What was it about the way they received you that was helpful?

5: What are some specific ways that our church or your gospel community can become a place where people are welcomed to lament?
