The Language of Lament – Drew Oswald and Dr. Tim Saleska

“Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived” explores the ways in which theology permeates all aspects of life. Through conversations with our faculty, we will challenge you to deepen your theology and live out your faith in Christ. We’ll talk with a variety of professors on a variety of topics – something different in every episode, but all pointing to the intersection of faith and daily life. It’s tangible: theology learned and lived.

In this episode STM student Drew Oswald and Dr. Tim Saleska discuss prayers of lament and the ways in which they lead us to hope. Oswald spoke on the topic at the 2023 Theological Symposium at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in his sectional “Lamenting Toward Hope: Peculiar Speech in a Changing World”.

Laments are a prayer that tell God the horrible things that are going on and then really demand that He answer. – Drew Oswald
