Most of the characters in the book of Job, including Job himself, are questioning why bad things happen to good people. As a result, we tend to read it thinking that’s the question the book is trying to answer. We then come away mad that it doesn’t answer the question, and frequently upset at the nature of God it presents.

And what is Satan doing at God’s staff meeting anyway? I think we have misunderstood the question behind the story of Job’s misfortune as well as the type of literature we’re dealing with. Join us Sunday for a different take on both the question and the book.

Honoring Parents Who Don’t Deserve It

Honoring Parents Who Don’t Deserve It

One of the Ten Commandments (either #4 or #5, depending on how you count) says, "Honor thy father and thy mother." We often breeze past that just like we breeze into Mother’s Day and Father’s Day thinking, "Who can possibly have a problem with...
