  • 11 a.m.
  • Format: 2 X 15 minute talks, 30 minutes discussion groups

Session 1: Chris Birtles (Thames Valley); Simon Dinning (Belfast)

Sat 30 May: Session 1 – Why do these things happen?

Why does suffering happen? Where is God in it? How can we grow and develop as we go through times of trial?

In this session we will explore what key passages from the Bible say about these and other related questions – starting with the creation account. We continue by considering the ministry of Jesus, and how the writings of the apostles and prophets give us hope now and for the future as they point to the ultimate hope.
