This week's reading ....

Reading 1 

Job 

Is not man’s life on earth a drudgery? 

I have been assigned months of misery.. 

My days come to an end without hope.  

I shall not see happiness again. 

Reading 2  

 ‘woe to me if I don’t preach…” 

Mark 

‘…take out the demons’ 

Do you feel like Job feels in this reading, at least sometimes?  

Many of us are feeling like Job during this time of Covid.  

As Jesus’ followers, we have a calling to bring healing to the world full of suffering.  How? By service.  

God’s love is particularly needed and noticed in suffering, injustice, and poverty.  

Why do you think God allows suffering? Can you still have trust in God even if you do not understand why God allows people to suffer? 

But he does not take troubles away. 

He joins us in them. 

God is here to heal the broken hearted.
