Perseverance in Pain: How Long? – Rev. Frenchye Magee
When is enough, enough?
How long is too long before faith in God begins to buckle under the pain of life?
Where do we find strength to persevere when we reach the point in our journey where even our most significant human relationships have been strained by the depth of our existential crisis?
All these questions are before us this week as we consider the story of Job and the mystery of suffering. When life is hard, it’s easy to shape our worldview around the pain. It’s also easy to deny the alienation that seasons of pain and crisis can produce. Neither position is the way of authentic spirituality that asks us to practice endurance and lament. Pastor Frenchye shares the sermon and we consider the paradox that accompanies our human journey of love, friendship, pain, perseverance, and God-with-us. Invite your friends and neighbors to join you for worship…and stay for brunch. You may find nourishment in every way!
