About PARKS at ONE
PARKS at ONE is a series of monthly lunchtime talks which aim to connect the Christian faith with the everyday lives of all those who work on the Cambridge Science, Innovation and Business Parks.
It's free, there is no need to book and everyone is welcome – whether you a person of faith, curious about the big questions of life, or just interested in finding out more about the Christian faith.
We meet at 1pm in the Trinity Centre conference suite on the Science Park and finish by 1.35pm allowing you to get on with your working day.
Food and drink can be purchased from the cafe adjacent to the conference suite or you are welcome to bring your own food and eat during the talk.
Wednesday 13th March 2019, 1pm, Trinity Centre, Cambridge Science Park
Finding strength in a world filled with pain
The comedian Stephen Fry was once asked if he were ever to meet God what would he say to him? He replied; 'I'd say, how dare you? How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault? It's not right. It's utterly utterly evil'
The existence of pain, suffering and evil in our world has vexed humanity for millenia - believers and unbelievers alike. Is suffering the final knock-out blow for the existence of God? Or does God lack power or compassion? Is there a meaning or a reason behind our pain and struggle? Where can we find the much needed resources to draw on in order to find hope and the strength to cope in the midst of a broken world?
We are delighted to welcome our speaker Matt Lillicrap. Matt works for a Cambridge city centre church as a pastor. Previously he practiced as a medical doctor training in Care of the Elderly Medicine. He also worked part time as a staff worker with Christian Medical Fellowship. Having worked on the front lines amidst the very personal reality of human fraility and suffering he is able to bring a much needed and fresh viewpoint to this important issue.
Do join us if you can for what will be an exceptional talk.
