The Book of Job tells the story of a man called Job. Job was a good man. Job trusted God. But Job had terrible troubles.
The devil caused Job’s troubles (Job 1:12; Job 2:6-7). But Job did not know this fact. So Job thought that God caused the problems (Job 19:1-12). In fact, God did not cause Job’s troubles. God merely permitted Job to suffer. Still, Job trusted God. And Job refused to insult God (Job 2:9-10).
Job’s friends tried to help Job. But their advice was wrong. They did not think that God would allow an innocent person to suffer. So they thought that Job was guilty. They guessed that Job had done many wicked things (Job 22:4-11).
Job argued with them. He explained that he was innocent (Job 31:1-40). Job thought that God should help him. But Job was still suffering. So Job supposed that God was unfair (Job 23:13-17). But this idea was wrong. Nobody should accuse God. God is always fair (Job 34:10-12).
God was kind to Job, even when Job was suffering. God taught Job many things. Job learned that death is not the end of everything (Job 19:25-27). Job discovered that God would rescue him (Job 14:13-17). And Job knew that God is wonderful (Job 26:5-14).
Then a man called Elihu spoke. Elihu was wiser than Job’s other friends were. Elihu told Job not to accuse God. And Elihu was angry that the other friends had been cruel to Job (Job 32:2-3).
Then a storm approached the men. And the men heard God’s voice (Job chapter 38 to chapter 41).
God reminded the men that he is very great. He told them about the world, the stars and the sea (Job chapter 38). He described many strange animals (Job chapter 39 to chapter 41). And God explained that he created all these things. So nobody should accuse God. Nobody should say that God is not fair. Instead, we must respect God. And we must be humble.
Then Job was sorry that he said the wrong things about God. And Job’s friends were sorry too. They asked Job to pray for them. And God forgave them all (Job chapter 42).
After Job prayed for his friends, God made Job successful again (Job 42:12-17).

Knitting For Others

In addition to our ongoing partnership with Dundee-based aid agency Mission International, we have also established a link with an HIV AIDS orphanage in Kenya for which we are currently preparing a consignment of knitted baby clothes. All contributions of knitted vests, hats etc are welcome and to help keep the needles clicking, any donations of double knitting wool (any colour except white) would also be appreciated. These can either be handed in at group meetings on Monday afternoons between 1.45 and 3.30 pm or uplifted by arrangement.
N.B. - From November 6 the group will meet at 21 Barry Road through until the end of March when meetings will return to Barry Church Hall.

This November, come and join us On the Road!

What is it?

On the Road is a process designed to enable the national Councils, who exist only to support the local Church in its mission and ministry, to plan well for the future.

The Church of Scotland is getting back 'On the Road' this year to share what we have learned from listening to church members and to hear your feedback and ideas on our report.

Who is it for?

These events are an open invitation to everyone connected with the Church. Whether you are a regular worshipper, or an occasional attender; whether you take a leadership role in your local Church or simply drop in from time to time – ‘On the Road' wants to hear from you. We want to listen to folks from every background and every congregation: don't leave it to someone else – come and have your say!

and adapts to the changing landscapes of the world today.
Many of you are involved in worshipping communities
that pray together at different times and in different
ways. This National Day of Prayer allows us to have a
special focus where we could join together in prayer
across the country.
We invite you to join us as we:
Pray for the decision makers
