Sermon for Every Sunday | – "Not the Whole Story," a Sermon by Carla Pratt Keyes from Job 1:1, 2:1-10

“When my children were young…one of their favorite books to read was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Do you know that book? Almost everything you can imagine goes wrong for Alexander that particular day,” begins Carla Pratt Keyes, pastor of Ginter Park Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia. In today’s passage from Job 1:1, 2:1-10, “The biblical character of Job has had an unbelievably horrible day – far worse than Alexander’s or mine or yours…what happens to him is, without question, undeserved and unjust.” But that’s not the whole story. Job’s story is part of a larger, better story, the story of faith…one in which God is present and “powerful, even in the midst of trouble, and at work for our good.”
