Suffering and Evil: A Christian View — Sunday Lenten Forums This Sunday Through March 25th After 10:15 am Worship Services

By on January 18, 2018 in Uncategorized

This Lent you are invited to join Matthew Simpson, Trinity’s Deacon in Formation, in an exploration of the ancient problem of suffering and evil in a Christian context. 

This journey will include a look at The Book of Job, the Psalms and Lamentations, as well as historical events such as natural disasters and man-made events. The series will bring out Scriptural warrant for honest anger and faithful sorrow in our religious tradition. 

We will look at how believing in a God who was made incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth re-frames this ancient and modern problem of suffering in our world. 

The series does not seek to answer the problem of suffering and evil, but seeks to bring insight that can change the questions we have.
