Twenty-fifth Sunday of Pentecost

Oh, That My Words Were Recorded

Job 19: 23 - 24

Job's cry from the heart, "Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll, that they were inscribed with an iron tool on lead, or engraved in rock forever!" comes from a man who probably could neither read nor write.

Most likely, his story was told and retold through several generations before it was actually written down. We don't believe that it was written down in his lifetime.

It is hard for us to imagine what a life without pencil and paper, much less books, computers, tape recorders, and video cameras, could be like.

Make a class project of choosing a way of recording what the class has to say. The words Job wanted to save were, "I know that my Redeemer lives." Which words would the class choose to record?

And if only one word could be recorded by each of us, what would that word be? Which method to would we to choose for recording it, and where would we keep that record?
