When we read the Book of Job, it can feel like the old Calvin and Hobbes cartoon, where Calvin, looking up into the starry night, yells out "I'M SIGNIFICANT!!!” In this week's sermon "Where were you?” Rev. Meyers explores how the Jewish folktale of Job and his many woes examines one of the ‘big questions’ of faith: why does God allow suffering?

  • Prelude: Various (Bruhns; Locklair; J.S. Bach)
  • Readings: Job 38:1–11, 31-38; Hebrews 5:1–10; Mark 10:35–45
  • Sermon: “Where Were You?"
  • Anthems:
    • O God, Thou Art My God (Purcell)        
    • Ubi Caritas (Lappano)  
  • Handbells Offertory: Celtic Grace (Geschke)
  • Postlude: Festival Fanfare for Organ (Drummond Wolff)   


The cornerstone of our week, worship at 11am is offered under the leadership of The Rev. Jason Francis Meyers, Dr. Patricia Wright, The Rev. Mark Aitchison, and lead singers of the Metropolitan Choir.
