HOW CAN GOD ALLOW SUFFERING?

“The painful reality of suffering in our world… will, in one way or another, affect us all” (Amy Orr-Ewing, author)

There are things in life that make us weep, cry out, confuse, enrage or leave us speechless. It seems like this world is not the way it’s supposed to be.

And believing in God can make ‘the problem of pain’ seem worse.

Whether natural disasters or the pain of situations much closer to home, many of us will have at some point asked: “why?” and “If God, why?”

These are important questions, and they don’t have – and shouldn’t have – easy answers.

Over three Tuesday evenings, join with us in walking through these question pursing the beginnings of an answer.

It’s been said that the best time to think about the problem of suffering is before it happens – though we may not have that option.

In the midst of the storm time and space, tears and a listening ear are more helpful but there is also a time and a place to ask hard questions and try to think things through.

8.00pm-9.15pm, Tuesday 19th May, 2nd June, 23rd June at the Grace Church Office, King Street. If you think you’ll be coming please do sign up online to help us with numbers. Feel free to just turn up too.
