There has been much written about the theology of suffering and “why bad things happen to good people.”  But when it comes to the actual experience of suffering we are often challenged as to how to walk with and through the confusion of pain.  It is for such times that we need a “spirituality of suffering”—a faith posture that will not only help us understand our pain, but will also help us bear it.

This one-day seminar examines the effects that pain and suffering have on our faith, as well as the uncharted terrain we must negotiate for ourselves, or as we accompany those who suffer around us.

 “Praise be to God, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” (2 Cor. 1:3-4)
