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.
- 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 days 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
