Lenten Series 2019: The Book of Job

March 26, April 2 & 9 begins with Evening Prayer at 6pm, dinner and the program to follow

Once again this year we will join together for our weekly Lenten worship, dinner and program.  It will be held at here St. Mark’s, 520 N. Boulevard, on Tuesday evenings March 26, April 2 & 9.  Evening Prayer is at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner.

The program is from 7:00-7:45 p.m.

The Book of Job is described in the NRSV Study Bible as not explaining the mystery of suffering nor “justifying the ways of God,” with human beings, but as probing the depths of faith in the midst of suffering. Join in this three week study as we ask and ponder the possible answers for the question, “Does Job fear God for nothing?” 

Our guiding questions will include: How is God speaking through apparent silence today, in a culture rife with violence and injustice?  How is God directing us on our contemporary journey, and where is that journey taking us?  No pre-reading or knowledge of Job is necessary for this study.  Just arrive prepared to think, engage, talk, and question.

Ample parking is available behind St. Mark’s.
