Stephen Gunter Lectures:
Harvey!, Irma!, and a Loving God?
How Do Christians Discuss Faith and Natural Disasters?
Presented October 8 and 15, 2017
Do recent storms and other natural disasters leave you wondering about your faith in God? Are insurance companies right to call these “acts of God”? What does it mean when well-meaning Christians assert “God is in control!”? How can our Creator be a loving God and let all these bad things happen? If these and other related questions are of interest to you, then this pair of lectures may pique your interest.
