Wednesday evenings, October 25 to November 15
7:45 to 9:00 p.m.
Why do bad things happen to good people? How can it be that good people suffer and yet God is just? For thousands of years, the profoundly moving story of Job has allowed people of faith to reflect on these mysteries, even in the midst of sorrow. Job is a righteous man who suffers great calamity and anguish. Job engages in a heated dialogue
with three friends concerning the nature and cause of suffering. Job’s “friends” — in the course of trying to make sense of Job’s sufferings, perhaps hoping to avoid confronting their own fears — offer more accusation than kindness to Job. Job counters their arguments, and with nowhere else to turn for comfort, Job turns to God in a desperate plea for justice and deliverance. When God’s answer finally comes out of the storm, it is not what we expect.
All are welcome! There is a suggested donation of $10 to cover the cost of materials.
To prepare for the four-week study, if you have time please begin by reading Job chapters 1-14.
