Class Offered –“Human Suffering & God’s Sovereignty”

 We live in a world filled with evil, violence, and human suffering which raises hard questions of a loving God.  Even in the time of Christ, many desperate needs remained unmet as Jesus continued on to the next village. Where was God then, where is God now? Faith in a loving God collides with life’s most difficult and pain–filled questions.
