Gordon Brown: Lament leader?

We had this conversation in a lecture this morning. About how Gordon Brown led lament in the House of Commons yesterday. I was very impressed with the whole thing. So maybe an observation from how you can do lament in church.

Normal proceedings stopped.

The leader led: and led out of his own experience. He was empathetic in an understated way.

Others had the chance to respond and bear witness/ give testimony.

It was related to the wider world.

Nothing more profound than that.. just some thoughts
