What do Christians do with suffering and loss?

REVD Alan Ward, Baptist Minister at STC (St Thomas Crookes) Sheffield, writes: “God is love, so what do Christians do with suffering and loss? How do we make sense of God when life doesn’t go according to plan?

“In 2010 Dave Luck – now a Cluster Leader at St Thomas’ Crookes – was co-leading Living Waters Christian Fellowship in Darnall, Sheffield, when his son, Ben, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumour and died the following April. Dave has written a book called ‘What Happens Now?’ about his family’s experience and the faith journey that followed - the tough questions they had to face and the new hope that has emerged.”

A launch event for the book will be held at the church in Nairn Street, Sheffield, S10 1UL on Tuesday, October 24th, 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Click here for the facebook link.
