Suffering and the Theology of the Cross:500 Years after the Heidelberg Disputation
October 31 - November 2, 2018
By addressing suffering, we’re acknowledging that we all go through it to some extent or another–whether health, financial, relational, or spiritual. And, in fact, we recognize that the church may have ups and downs in the days ahead. But by understanding our suffering through the theology of the cross–that is, that Christ never abandons us and bears us through our suffering, we also see the joy that we have in the Christian life. So joy will definitely be a theme, particularly as we recognize God’s care for us in suffering.
