I’m Going Out To Sing With Sorrow. You Come, Too.

Ryan Fan

In times of darkness and distress as these, these words from Dan Allender are particularly important:

“Christians seldom sing in the minor key. We fear the somber; we seem to hold sorrow in low esteem. We seem predisposed to fear lament as a quick slide into doubt and despair, failing to see that doubt and despair are the dark soil that is necessary to grow confidence and joy.”
