Why? A Four Week Sermon Series Beginning September 12th
The question of how God can exist when there is evil in the world, or a good reason or explanation for this is called theodicy. In other words, if there is a loving and all-powerful God, why do bad things happen? On the 20th anniversary weekend of 9/11, we begin a four week sermon series asking some of the toughest questions of faith. Using the book, “Why?” as our guide (Adam Hamilton), we examine God’s will, free will, unanswered prayer and how God asks us to be prayer for others. Pastor Barb and Pastor Cody will discuss each week’s topic on our Wednesday Facebook Live chat via our Parker UMC FB page. Join us for this thought provoking sermon series.
