Episode 33: #GriefAND Lament Part 1 featuring Soong-Chan Rah.  Profesor Rah (ThD, Duke Divinity School) is Robert Munger Professor of Evangelism at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He is the author of Prophetic LamentThe Next Evangelicalism, and Many Colors, as well as coauthor of Unsettling Truths, Forgive Us, and Return to Justice. In addition to serving as founding senior pastor of the multiethnic, urban ministry-focused Cambridge Community Fellowship Church (CCFC), Rah has been a part of four different church-planting efforts and served with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Boston. 

Because the church has not been the voice here, we don’t understand grief as a spiritual exercise. Lament is being lost.

Dr. Soong Chan-Ra

In this episode, our conversation begins with Dr. Soong Chan-Rah sharing a little bit about his story and how his life experiences have influenced his passion for the work he does. We discuss the important of bringing back the topic of grief back into the church conversation and how it is crucial that we not only grieve personally but also corporately as a church. We unpack the idea that we need to become more comfortable in the space of lament and be more honest and real about the reality of the world we live in.
