Questions for discussion
- What experiences of suffering have shaped who you are today? (this can be personal, or anecdotal, or perhaps something from the news)
- What do you think people suffering people need the most from their friends?
- Torrance said – ‘if I did not believe in the cross, I could not believe in God.’ What do you make of that? What relevance, if any, do you think the cross has to suffering?
- What did you make of McLaughlin’s point when she said – ‘If there is no God, we still suffer, but there is no “universe” to care…We must stare into that abyss and not fool ourselves with platitudes.’ – did you agree with that?
