Sacred Questions: Where were you when I created the earth?
We’re returning to one of our communal practices: letting ourselves be drawn out by the questions God asks in Scripture. This week we find ourselves in the story of Job, a character who experiences trauma stacked on top of trauma. Rather than accepting the tidy solutions of his friends who are convinced that suffering and sin are always connected, he confronts God directly, and God raises his level of consciousness by asking him, Where were you when I created the earth?
This teaching was recorded at Four Winds Field, where we’re holding outdoor Sunday night gatherings instead of our regular gathering schedule at Studebaker 112, which has been suspended due to COVID-19.
