Philip Yancey on God and Suffering

i-hs5Hskp-XL

It’s so crucial to understand that God is on the side of the one who suffers and not the one who causes the suffering. . . . Jesus always responds with comfort, compassion, and healing. Sometimes art can be that solace, that channel of God’s grace, and sometimes words help as well. What we as Christians are called to do is bring that note of comfort and hope.”—Philip Yancey

+ In light of the Manchester bombing, the London fire, the shooting of Rep Scalise, and other recent tragedies, we offer this video of celebrated author Philip Yancey and Brehm Center director Mako Fujimura reflecting on the role of art to respond gracefully to cultural trauma and suffering around the world. Watch the full video on FULLER studio.
