Brief sermon outline preached in Sullivan IL yesterday:

When tragedy hits a community like the one in Aurora, Colorado, we wonder WHY. Our tragedies are small in comparison with the tragedies faced by others in the varied parts of the world; but though they are small (in comparison) they are just as hard hitting as anything else faced by others. How does one address it?

Psalm 38 is a psalm that speaks to the hard-hitting anguish of life’s experiences. Consider it as we consider:

I. WHY? (Why does such evil occur, and where is God when it does occur?)
II. WHERE? (Where is man’s safety?)
III. WHEN? (When will man know?)

#evil, #pain-and-suffering, #sermon
