Pain and suffering in a fallen world, although inevitable, are also a part of the larger redemptive story of God. When traumatic events such as serious accidents, alarming violence, sexual and/or emotional abuse, natural disasters, and frightening threats invade our lives, we can feel a host of common visceral emotions such as hopelessness, anxiety, fear, irritability, anger, guilt, and shame. We often struggle to understand what difference God’s redemption through Jesus Christ makes in the midst of these experiences. This workshop invites those who are suffering and those who are walking alongside the sufferer to find biblical hope and practical ways to face common intrusive emotions after trauma.
