Event description


Some people are undone by suffering. Others are made stronger. Still others flourish within it.

Join us in September 2017 for a two-day conference exploring the mystery and meaning of suffering in human life.

You'll learn:

  • How are we to make sense of evil and suffering in this world?
  • How can we do something with the pain and conflict in our lives?
  • What is grief and lament, and how do they play a part in human psychology, emotion, and experience?
  • What can we learn from history about pain and suffering?
  • How does the suffering of Christ work for our good?
  • How can we forgive those who cause us great pain from wrongs done?


2 evenings of big-idea talks, on-stage conversations, and more from scholars, thought leaders, and practitioners


Engage with conference speakers in intimate 45-minute discussion seminars and praxis labs


Be intellectually shaped and spiritually formed through learning and liturgy
