The Book of Psalms - Chapter I
Lent: Lament & Consolation
Date: Sunday 17th March
Cost: Free, donation only (suggested donation £12)
“In my psychotherapy practice I sometimes encounter people whose sadness has become sickness for lack of an outlet for expression. We need others to witness our pain, so consolation can be offered and received” - Edwin Fawcett
Our culture offers a range of anaesthetics to answer the problem of pain. Some of them make us sicker - shame, blame, re-framing reality.
Come and discover a neglected treasure - the prayer of lament. When we risk practicing this prayer out of season, it can kick in more naturally when we need to cry out “help”! This is what Jesus did during his passion, reciting words of ancient songs he had learned from childhood.
Heartfelt prayer of lament can open the door to consolation - and true healing.
The Book of Psalms is a series of four open-rehearsal-style worship and performance events, in celebration of composer Edwin Fawcett’s fortieth birthday in 2024.
Through the year, Edwin will share forty songs based on the Book of Psalms with his band and other guests - including twenty previously unheard/unreleased songs.
Not a big singer? No problem!
Come along to observe, learn, support and grow.
