Wrestling in the Darkness: Job and His Friends’ Quest for Meaning in Suffering
February 20/21, 2016
“I despise my life…my days have no meaning….When he has tested me, I will come forth as gold” (Job 7:18; 23:10).
In Job 3-27, Job enters into a deep dialogue with his friends about the nature and meaning of suffering. They offer counsel that is, in one way, true, but is divorced from the context of Job’s life and God’s permission. We will talk about when to speak and when to be silent, how we comfort one another in suffering and also how we search out meaning together before God in suffering.
