Where is God in our suffering?

Thursday 12 November 13.00 – 14.00

To mark Inter Faith Week this year, the BEIS Faith & Minority Ethnic (FAME) Network is hosting an inter faith talk on suffering, a subject that is very close to our hearts given the challenging times we have been through and are still going through as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our speakers for this event are: Asim Hafiz, an Imam and Islamic Religious Advisor at the Ministry of Defence; Tom Wright, an Assistant Minister at St Nick’s Church who delivers Bible talks in Victoria, as part of the Gospel at Work network; and Dr Moshe Freedman, a Rabbi at the New West End Synagogue, Jewish Chaplain at the Canary Wharf Multifaith chaplaincy, and deputy vice-chair to the Moral and Ethical Advisory Group (MEAEG) which advises DHSC on ethical issues related to healthcare in the UK. Come along to find out about what the Abrahamic faiths have to say on the subject of suffering. There will be time for Q&A.
