Learning to Lament

Many of us in leadership in church’s are wrestling with how to shepherd our people through the tragedy in Haiti right now.  Most of us don’t know how to lament, and the church hasn’t taught us.  At Christ the King we are repenting of this and trying to provide some basic materials to help people pray for and express godly sorrow for the horrific natural disaster in Haiti. As well this Sunday we took up a special alms offering for Haiti going to help the work of Churches helping Churches.
