This sermon is called “Behind the Scenes”. I originally gave it on Memorial Day 2010.
It approaches Psalm 22 as though it were a 3 act play. Like many Psalms, it is a mashup of faith and lament, acknowledging suffering while choosing to trust.
The theme is seeing God’s perspective while you pray painful prayers, and the central image of the sermon is pulling back a stage curtain to see what’s happening behind the scenes.
