Liturgy that Matters – October 10, 2021 – Job 23:1-9, 16-17
Themes: Like Job, this issue is wrestling with God, asking if there is any angle in which the divine figure in this story can be interpreted justly. Casey Overton writes, “Job was always right not to accept his dejected condition as final, even if that involved hurling irreverent monologues at the Creator.” Talking back to God, Job’s friends, and our context today, this issue demands answers in the face of suffering.
This week’s sermon commentary is written by Casey Overton with liturgy by Rev. Molly Bolton.
