17 October 2021 - 21st Sunday after Pentecost - Asking questions and seeking answers from God is not disrespectful nor inherently a wrong thing if done with the right intention. God is not unaware of our personal situations, Deacon Aaron Eime reminds us, and God knows us intimately. He is present during our dark times, and he hears our cries and questions about suffering and evil. It's from the storm and the chaos of the world that God’s voice can still be heard. When everything seems out of control, the reality is that God is in total control. God has shared our weaknesses in the person of Jesus, who is now elevated to be our eternal high priest. Jesus continues to speak to the people of God, so let us hear again the Good News when we need it the most.
Readings: Job 38:1-7, 34-41; Hebrews 5:1-10; Mark 10:35-45
