Lament is a topic that is often overlooked in American churches (especially in predominately caucasian churches).
Lament is very common in the Bible, especially in the Old Testament. We see it as a theme throughout the prophetic books, and the Bible has more books on prophecy than in any other genre. We see it in places like Job, Ruth, and Ecclesiasties.
Lament is not whining.
