Interfaith Fridays

Why does a loving God allow suffering and tragedy to befall a creation God is supposed to love and care for?

Nine lectures, on nine Fridays, from nine leaders in nine different faith traditions will answer that question. Moderated by the Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, vice president of religion and senior pastor, this lively and engaging conversation is also livestreamed on Facebook and archived at online.chq.org, so you can participate regardless of whether you are on the grounds or away.
