It is an ancient, enduring question: “Why do the righteous suffer?” Our worship this week looks at this question through the eyes of Job, whose very name has linked with suffering.
Yet our worship and our preacher, Rev. Amy Grogan looks at this question framed in the sense of God’s soverignity and majesty. We hope that you will join us in worship this week as we work thorough Job’s question, our question, as people of God.
Our worship today, 30 minutes long includes hymns and songs that we hope you will sing along with, scripture, and prayer. And as we do each week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate, if you would like, with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." All are welcome at our table.
