Where is G~d when bad things happen? We can run too long a list of atrocious acts – the Holocaust, the North American slave trade, the Trail of Tears, the Rwandan genocide, the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Syrian civil unrest, etc.
From such events our faith can either expand or contract. I’ve never experienced anything as atrocious in my life, but I completely understand how people decide there is no G~d because certainly G~d would intervene, right? Exactly who is responsible for the state of the world?
Answers to these questions are complex and layered. However, I do know that we humans play a larger role than we are willing to accept responsibility. Listen for more.
