God and Human Suffering: Learning to Lament. Audio. Dr. Douglas Groothuis from the Chronic Illness and Christian Faith and The Constructive Curmudgeon. This seminar was given at Fellowship Denver Church. What is lamenting? “The anguished cry of the naked soul before God in times of crushing distress.” Believers should learn to “co-lament” – sit beside a friend who is suffering to bear the burden with them. “If one part [of the body of Christ] suffers, every part suffers with it;” (1 Cor 12: 25 & 26).
