Seeking Meaning in Suffering

452012veritasDoes God Care? Seeking the Meaning of Life in the Midst of Suffering and Death

Veritas Forum at UCLA – April 24, 2012

Discussing suffering is easier when you’re standing on the outside.  It’s a lot harder when you’re in it.  Why is there suffering?  Who is responsible?  How do we deal with death?  Is God relevant to how we deal with suffering?

Dr. Michael Lill of UCLA and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center will present an agnostic perspective on this topic.  Dr. Raymond Barfield of Duke University will offer the Christian perspective in this dialogue event.  Their perspectives on suffering and faith will draw from their experiences as oncologists treating or providing palliative care to patients with fatal diseases.

The NCF student chapter at UCLA has been asked to be involved with follow up from this forum.  Please pray that God would work in the hearts of seeking students who attend the program.  Please also pray for the NCF students to be able to connect with other nursing students for continued discussion of the topic and for opportunities to share Christ with their classmates.
