For the past few weeks I, and a number of other pastors, theologians and religious thought leaders throughout Texas, have participated in an online forum hosted by the Dallas Morning News. Weekly we are asked to give our perspective on a particular issue as viewed from our faith perspective. Readers have the opportunity to respond to our answers and we, in turn can react to their responses (so far I haven't but some of the 'discussions' are pretty interesting).
The questions are put to us by a group of DMN editorial writers: Bill McKenzie, Jeff Weiss, Wayne Slater and Richard Dreher.
This weeks question comes from Jeff: "What do you find in your faith tradition that helps you deal with or explain the reality of suffering?"
Hope you find the answers interesting and stimulating. If you've got a response, you can post it here and/or at the DMN site. But I'd love to know what you think.
