Event Details

Join Fr. Jonathan for the final summer series of "Rector's Book Choice" for an evening of good conversation and reflection on Wednesday, August 15 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM to discuss Why Suffering by Ian Markham.

The three chapters of Why Suffering? Attempt to provide a gentle exploration of how we can respond to a complex issue that has baffled and bothered humanity throughout the ages: Why does a good, all-powerful, and loving God permit evil and suffering? The opening chapter examines the challenge in some depth, while the two additional chapters set forth a Christian response that is grounded in the disclosure of God in Christ on the cross.

We know it's right during dinner time so feel free to "bring your own dinner," or if you'd prefer to grill, bring yourself a hamburger, or some hot dogs, or a piece of chicken! Soft drinks and iced tea will be provided.

If you are interested in attending, please let Chelsea DiDonato know by emailing her at [email protected] or by phoning her at 860 767 8095 ext. 10.
