Everyone faces situations of difficulty and suffering. We also watch world events such as floods, earthquakes, famines, and wars that show us suffering on a massive scale. Especially in this age of information, we have immediate and graphic images of disasters such as tsunamis, school shootings, earthquakes, and wars.

It is natural for Christians to wonder about where God is in these situations. Throughout history and in our Scriptures, the people of God have tried to discern just where God is and why such and such a disaster occurred. Our immediate reaction is usually to find blame. Someone must have done something to deserve this.

Actually, there is another way to look at where God is to be found during disasters and personal tragedies. This study suggests another biblical approach. Participants will have a chance to think about new ways of seeing God in the midst of disaster and also talk about spiritual practices that prepare us for responding to difficulty.
