The church is a community with a shared purpose, in which faithful disciples find their place in contributing to the mission of building the kingdom. We will be looking at specific Gospel texts that deal with this concept of shared purpose. Having completed the study on our identity as God's children, we now turn to consider what it means to live out our identity in community by sharing our gifts with one another.

The book of Job explores the age old question of why bad things happen. The answers, if we are fortunate enough to even find, are rarely simple. Nonetheless, as followers of Jesus, who also endured bad things happening, we must not evade the difficult questions, but look to find meaning in and through our times of trial and suffering. In the first 37 chapters of Job, we hear everyone’s expert opinion on suffering: Job, Job’s wife, Job’s friends, Job’s hard friends. In Chapter 38, we finally hear what God has to say has He weighs in on the issue.
