Crying Out When God Seems Absent

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” drawn from the book of Habakkuk. I began this week by setting up where we are going in this series and looking at Habakkuk 1:1-4.

You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here.

Connect with us further at Eastbrook Church on VimeoFacebook, Twitter and Instagram.


Habakkuk’s Burden (Habakkuk 1:1)

The context of Habakkuk

The prophecy as ‘burden’


‘How Long?’ for Humanity and God (Habakkuk 1:2-4)

Humanity’s question of wrong, violence, and the apparent absence of God

God’s dance of justice and patience


Learning to Pray with Habakkuk

Turning to God vs. going numb

Learning to lament

Keeping our hearts open to God and the world
