Visions in the Cloud – Sept 12


"Singing the Blues"

There are times in our lives when we feel disoriented, we lose our bearings, our heart is heavy, our faith wavers. Psalms of Lament honour these moments with a song. This week we continue our exploration of the Psalms and consider how the spiritual practice of lament nurtures compassionate awareness for self and others. Even when we are 'singing the blues', God's Love keeps holding us.

We've been using some music by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan in this series. Listen to his piece "Desert Blues", a contemporary lament psalm, here:
