Angelika Dawson, communications manager for Communitas Care Services, spoke on the relevance of Psalm 88 (The Message) to those suffering with issues of mental health.  Although Psalm 88 is a deep lament and an expression of utter despair, this Psalm gives us three gifts: #1 it shows us what deep, dark despair looks like, #2 it gives us a voice in the darkness, #3 in that darkness, an expression of deep faith. Psalm 88 gives us permission to express our despair without judgment and in doing so, enables us to deepen our relationship with God. [JL]
