The Metaphysics of Suffering

Everyone, no matter how privileged or poor, will inevitably come face-to-face with tragedy. How can we make sense of all the pain and suffering in our world, especially when so much of it seems random or unfair? As a hospice chaplain, the presenter has ministered to people asking these same questions, and as someone whose life has been defined by tragedy and death, he, too, askes them — every day.

This session will explore suffering, evil, and how to transform these stark realities of life into something that transcends the self. Through touching stories, theology, and philosophy, death will be tackled.
