Tenth Healthcare Fellowship: Suffering & the Gospel

by Lauren Abt February 26, 2014

All humans experience suffering to some degree. How should Christians respond to non-believers in the face of questions about suffering and the existence of God or suffering and the goodness of God? How does this impact the way we witness to those around us in the midst of suffering? 

These are common issues we face as we seek to spread the gospel. We experience suffering in our personal lives and we see the suffering of our families, friends, communities, and the world. How can we spread the gospel without minimizing the suffering that others have experienced?

If you've experienced suffering, wrestled with how to reconcile suffering and the love of God, or wanted to be better equipped to discuss suffering and the gospel with those around you, join Medical Campus Outreach this Sunday, March 2 for our Healthcare Fellowship Lunch. Jerry Borton is the area director for Joni and Friends of Greater Philadelphia. Joni and Friends is the national organization started by Joni Eareckson Tada in 1979 that seeks to meet the spiritual and practical needs of disabled people around the world.

This conversation (Fellowship Hall, 12:45pm-2:00 PM), as always, is open to anyone interested in the topic or speaker and is not limited to healthcare students or professionals! Sign up if you're able to join us and would like to bring something for the meal. If you have questions, please email Lauren.
