Suffering, Healing, and Meaning, with Philip Yancey and Julia Wattacheril
We are delighted to host the next event in our "Discovery and Doxology" series in partnership with BioLogos and Church of the Advent. This series brings together leading scientists and theologians to discuss the relationship between science and faith.

On Friday, April 23rd author and theologian Philip Yancey will be joined by Dr. Julia Wattacheril to discuss suffering and it's redemption. Yancey believes that "the redemption of pain is better than the removal of it." Yancey and Wattacheril will help us think through the meaning of our personal and national pain and how knowing the God who suffers-with us transforms our suffering into something beautiful. We hope you will join us!

This event was made possible through the support of a grant from Templeton Religion Trust. The opinions expressed in this program do not necessarily reflect the views of Templeton Religion Trust.
