THE THEOLOGY of SUFFERING
a presentation by Fr. Brian... One of the greatest mysteries we face in the world today concerns suffering and death. How we come to address these issues, in many ways affects our relationship with God, the world and those people most immediately part of our lives. We have many questions about why bad things happen to good people; and why, if God is a loving God, does he allow such terrible things to occur; and once death arrives, how do we properly give ritual to that event. In short, how do we find meaning is the midst of pain and loss? We will be having a seminar to address these issues and maybe begin to help you formulate answers to these questions that have plagued humanity from the beginning. Join us on two consecutive Tuesday evenings, May 17th and 24th, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at St. Mary Church Parish Hall.
