Sacred Sorrow

Trauma and Psychotherapy class is most excellent. The prof has a focus on, I don’t know how to say it, finding God in the middle of profound suffering, perhaps?

Michael Card’s book “A Sacred Sorrow” is a great book. Love the image of the words of lament being surprisingly sweet. He also talks about God’s “hesed” and limns an image of the vav adversative in the Psalms being a flag flying in an easterly breeze, marking the line from a focus on self and suffering to a disjunctive view from faith that God is here (presence) and faithful, loving, good (hesed). Good stuff.

    He is always telling you what the Father says
    concerning your situation. Don’t worry about writing the perfect emails or messages.

    A lot of guys who are of age will be insulted if you
    refer to them as boys.
