Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Where Is God?” based on Job 23 for the Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost on October 14, 2012. How do we live when our experience of suffering or loss causes our moral universe to collapse? In the theological economy of Job’s former world, before his catastrophic loss, the suffering of a genuinely righteous person was mathematically impossible. But it had happened…An anguished, deeply confused, and angry Job engages with three friends (Eliphaz, Bildad,and Zophar), a youthful bystander (Elihu), and finally with God. Job teaches us what it means to lament, to trust God in the midst of suffering and loss.
