Making sense of suffering

The evening will consist of a presentation by our guest speaker, Dr Hugh Thomson, followed by a chance to ask questions and raise discussion. We start at 7.15pm and aim to finish around 9pm. You can find Leytonstone Library on Google Maps by clicking here.

If you enjoy coming to the talk and would be interested if we organised others in a similar style, then please let us know.

Our topic: People are amazing. From simple tasks to complicated projects, from the everyday to the one-offs, we are capable of wonderful things. How did we become like this? The Bible says it was by design; that we have been “wonderfully made” by God. Yet our lives are also deeply scarred by troubles and hurts. So what has God got to do with those? Nothing at all? Everything? How do we make sense of our suffering? Dr Hugh Thomson is a surgeon who became a pastor. He has seen great suffering but believes we don’t understand it by turning away from God but, rather, towards Him through Jesus.
