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.
