B46: The Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost (2015)

Amy Butler

The Rev. Dr. Amy Butler, Interim Senior Minister of National City Christian Church in Washington DC, preaches from Job 23:1-9, 16-17, the second sermon in a series. Butler begins with a story about Martin Marty, who after the death of his first wife wrote, “A Cry of Absence: Reflections for the Winter of the Heart.” He explains this time as, “A wintry spirituality, a time when our spirituality is marked by questions of suffering and evil, when we are trying to talk to God but no matter what we do we can’t seem to get a clear connection.” Join Butler as she delves into Job’s time of “wintry spirituality” and explains what we can learn from today’s passage.
