This week I (Doug) had an appointment with one of the 12 year old girls in our community. Her mom brought her by to talk about question she has about God. She’d just been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and was asking a variation of an ancient trouble spot for Christians: How can God be completely good, and have created a world with such horrendous pain and evil?
Today, instead of a proper lesson, I simply report what we talked about. The thing is, I’m not even sure what I said to this precious little girl is true. I thought to tell you about it in order to start a conversation in our community.
Have a listen and let’s talk.
