Guest Jessica Chan, LAMENT
Have you ever thought, “Let me get this off my chest and then I'll go to church and sing.” or “I need to cry, so maybe this Sunday I'll stay home.” Let us, instead, worship together in our lament.
“Lament is not despair. It is not whining. It is not a cry into a void. Lament is a cry directed to God. It is the cry of those who see the truth of the world’s deep wounds and the cost of seeking peace. It is the prayer of those who are deeply disturbed by the way things are...” -Reconciling All Things.
Jessica lives with her husband Felix and two daughters. She’s an artist and an art teacher. For the past 10 years, she’s been working with P2C at the University of British Columbia and spent a year at the Universidad de Panamá. In her spare time, she can be found chipping away at a novel she’s writing about her family’s history.
