God is our Home

We often misread texts like Psalm 90:1-2, 9-16. We think these words promise us that the “truly faithful” do not suffer. We have used these words to justify the belief that our suffering means we don’t trust God enough or that we are not faithful enough – but that is not what his psalm promises. This sermon, preached on the first Sunday in Lent, considers how faithfulness and suffering coexist, and asks the question of where God is in our suffering.
