The Big Question: Why Do We Suffer?

 

 

Dr. Gordon E. Carkner, a meta-educator with graduate students at UBC, leads an inspiring discussion on this key universal question. He claims that our worldview is critical to the understanding of suffering and how it operates in our lives. The presentation also moves on a trajectory of hope for finding meaning in suffering, and discovering how it can shape us for the better. Does suffering stifle or support belief in a Good God? Dr. Carkner points out a fatal flaw in the traditional argument marshalled by atheists against God. He offers significant resources to probe this topic in much more depth.

 


Dr. Gordon E. Carkner, the Director of Graduate & Faculty Campus Ministries, along with his wife Ute love connecting with future global leaders within the graduate student university community. Through hospitality, biblical investigation, prayer and discussions of faith and academic studies, these students are drawn into kingdom concerns and introduced to God's powerful agape love.
