The theme of the service on Sunday evening was “Treasures of the snow” and God provided a wonderful visual aid!  “Treasures of the snow” is a phrase taken from Job Ch. 38 where Job challenges God as to why He has allowed so much suffering to come upon him.  God never answers that big question “why do bad things happen to good people?”  Instead He asks Job a few questions, such as:  Where were you when I made the world?  Have you ever made a star?  Have you ever been to the bottom of the ocean?  Have you entered the treasures of the snow?  Job has a rethink...
