Hope Springs From Truth Rehearsed
Mark Vroegop has been the Lead Pastor of College Park Church in Indianapolis since 2008. Along with being married to Sarah and the father of four children, he is a contributor to 15 Things Seminary Couldn’t Teach Me, and an author of a future book entitled Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy: Discovering the Grace of Lament (March 2019). Mark is also a conference speaker, a trustee at Cedarville University, and a council member of The Gospel Coalition.
Lamentations changed our worship, affected our prayers, and gave us a new language in suffering.
Perfectionism grows in gospel-lite soil. To combat this precarious problem, we need to see our shame and desire for control for what they are: another attempt to live by our works.
Jesus enters the mess our world. He becomes human. Jesus doesn’t stay aloof. He doesn’t stay removed.
