Event description

Description

One of the biggest challenges facing clergy today is the "problem of evil." Why does God allow suffering? Why do bad things happen to good people? How do we as clergy respond without resorting to platitudes and clichés?

On August 19 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m., Thomas Jay Oord, PhD. will speak directly to these and other questions as he presents the ideas from his latest book, God Can't: How to Believe in God and Love After Tragedy, Abuse, and Other Evils. He will also provide ample time for questions and answers in order to provide additional practical advice to pastors in the trenches. This latest Perspectives multi-cultural ministries event of the East Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church, The Problem of Evil is sponsored by the Mahoning Valley District.

The event’s presenter, Thomas Jay Oord, is a theologian, philosopher, scholar of multi-disciplinary studies, and a best-selling, award-winning author who has written or edited more than 25 books. A 12-time Faculty Award-winning professor, Oord teaches at institutions around the globe. He is a gifted speaker who is known for his contributions to research on love, open and relational theology, science and religion, and the implications of freedom and relationships for transformation.

**Lunch will be available for those who wish to remain after the session. Be sure to select the RSVP (Lunch) ticket option to help in planning the meal and defraying the cost of the food.**
