November 24th | 4pm - 5:30pm | St. Stephen’s Chaplaincy
The origin of Thanksgiving Day is disputed, but many agree that this harvest festival goes back to the 16th century when migrants, after long and hazardous journeys, thanked God for bringing them safely to 'the promised land'. Thanksgiving Day, therefore, suggests the theme of movement and of migration and God's Providential care along the way.
We take a moment of reflection, then, at this Interfaith gathering, to consider how we experience God's guiding hand in our own lives, in its joys and sufferings, its hopes and disappointments.
November 3rd | 4pm - 5:30pm | St. Stephen's Chaplaincy
Human suffering is the great enigma, especially for those who believe in a Creator who is all good and all loving. How do we make sense of human suffering? What does our faith - whatever our faith is - say about this?
As always at these interfaith gatherings, we will approach the issue of human suffering in a spirit of open and generous sharing of the wisdom of our respective traditions. It is not about debating or arguing but rather about listening respectively to each one's perspective and offering our own as a gift to the other.
