Job 1:1, 2:1-10; Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:5-12
“RC: The church is a reminder of God’s presence in the midst of this community, an extension of God’s love and care, God’s hands in a suffering world.
AKKP: The incarnation-Jesus being fully human and fully God is the most riveting example of God’s understanding and recognition that suffering is inevitable. Even to the point of sending Jesus, God’s son knowing that this meant Jesus would struggle, question and lament. And in Christ’s suffering he was made perfect.
MMS: God calls us to find ways to be together that do not diminish our humanity, but in ways that ennoble our humanity. God made us to regenerate, to heal, to forgive, to create. God made us for relationship and for redemption.
Grace Covenant, community is the answer to the suffering of the world.”
