We all experience pain in life. God never promises to remove his people from the suffering of the world. How then should we suffer? Should we repress our emotions of anger and sadness? Should we argue with God? What should we do? In this lecture, we will explore these questions with a focus on the message of Job, Psalms, and Lamentations, read ultimately in the light of the Gospel.
