Christians tend to think that praising God is the best thing we can do, and yet scripture is filled with people who do what seems the opposite, they lament! On this Midday Connection Gregg DeMey and Caryn Rivadeneira join us to talk about the role of lament in the life of the Christ follower and how it can not only honor God, but build intimacy with him. It’s all about “lament” on Midday Connection.
