On Mondays, we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.
Miriam Montgomery, from Edinburgh, will be a leading a seminar called Empty Cradle to Early Grave: Grief & Suffering in the Christian Life.
What is the seminar about?
The seminar will look at the place of grief and suffering in the Christian life. We will explore what different Biblical texts, from the psalms to the gospels, have to say on the subject. We will also discuss how the church, and individual Christians, can comfort those who are dealing with trials.
Who is the seminar for?
Anyone who has experienced grief and suffering, and also for those who would like to know how to better support others who are going through hard times.
Why is this area important?
Grief and suffering are inherent parts of our fallen world, but that doesn’t make them any easier to deal with. In fact, the universal nature of suffering can make many people question God’s existence, His power and His kindness. Yet the Bible has a strong message about God’s role in comforting and strengthening us through our trials, and its this message our seminar will be exploring.
Besides your seminar, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Convention are you looking forward to and why?
The sheer joy of seeing so many women come together to worship and learn more about the Lord. What an inspiration!
