So...I have been listening to a lot of Christian radio recently. It has rekindled a long-time thought I have had concerning the nature of Christian worship. It seems, based on my experience in worship ministry and the popular Christian songs I hear, that we are missing an important voice in our worship: the "Lament."
One of the most powerful forms of poetry/song in the Old Testament is that which we define as the "lament." There are many different forms of this kind of speech.
