Sunday Service 3rd October

by | Oct 1, 2021 | Events

A worship service was held at 10am on Sunday, 3rd October in the church building, and simultaneously broadcast on the Church Facebook page.  You can catch up here, or by following the link below.

Duncan’s sermon was the first of a short series on the book of Job, a folk tale or parable from the Old Testament which wrestles with the question of human suffering, and ‘why bad things happen to good people’. Duncan pointed out that what we find in Job is not the only the take on suffering in the Bible, but said that reflecting on it may lead us to new questions, and different ways of seeing things.

As we face suffering in our own lives and in the world, Duncan encouraged us to hold on in faith to God – an attitude illustrated more profoundly than anywhere else by Jesus as he died in his words ‘my God, my God why have you forsaken me?’ In that sentence faith remains (‘My God’) in at the heart of Jesus’ anguish and abandonment.  Do listen to Duncan’s very helpful sermon.

The readings for Sunday were:

Job 1:1; 2:1-10           Psalm 26       Hebrews 1:1-4; 2:5-12      Mark 10:2-16
