The Scripture Lesson
Job 1: 20-22 NIV
At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.” In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.
So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head. Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes. His wife said to him, “Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!” He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth.
I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Go now in peace –
Loving each other in Christ’s name.
We go with Christ Jesus-
Who healed the sick, the rich, the poor.
Go now with the Holy Spirit-
Who comforts, inspires, and offers direction.
We go in peace –
Confident in the loving embrace of God. Amen

Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In thee do we trust, nor find thee to fail:
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
Our maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.
