Coffee and Questions

We held one of our Easter Unwrapped mission events at the local Christian sandwich bar and bookshop last night. ( It was a great venue and the owners could not have been more helpful. We squeezed just over 20 in upstairs whilst some of our musicians played background music people chatted. We then watched a great clip from Patch Adams where he questions God about suffering - the clip beautifully juxtaposes the wonder of creation with the awfulness of suffering. After a 10 minute talk seeking to provide some answer to 'Why a God of love would allow suffering?' People settled to chatting with their friends again.

The most encouraging thing was seeing conversations taking place as people asked their questions and their friends got the gospel out and began answering them. We pray that for some there this is another barrier removed to understanding and accepting the gospel.
