Book of Job Sermon Series Underway This Fall

If you or someone you love has suffered, you will want to join us for our new series on the Book of Job.   We will explore Job’s struggles and ask whether or not he was right to stake everything on a God who allows such pain in the world.  Job gives us permission to ask honest questions about our suffering.   Why or Whether?    Pain fills the world.  Last month Tia Coleman lost 9 family members in a tragic duck boat accident in Missouri.  Her loss reads like it came straight from the Book of Job.  In the opening of Job, we read that “a great wind came across the wilderness and struck...
