Green Street Church Pastor Kelly P. Carpenter and several jazz musicians will present “The Story of Job: A Theodicy in Jazz and Spoken Word” on Tuesday, Oct. 28 in the auditorium at Centenary United Methodist Church, 646 West Fifth St. The free event begins at 7 p.m.

The Story of Job will be told with jazz and spoken word. By mixing jazz standards and poetry, it will explore the humor, pain, and deep insight found in this ancient drama.

Carpenter will present a version of the story, accompanied by some of the finest jazz musicians in the Triad – including John Wilson (percussion), Matt Kendrick (bass) and Karen Kendrick (piano).

In the Bible, the book of Job is designated as wisdom literature, but it is unique in its form as it contains elements of a traditional story and philosophical poetry.

Coupling this strange tale with the music of jazz allows the audience to explore the full range of human emotion, say organizers.

The evening will also include a time of fellowship and questions after the performance.
