Jesus Wept: A Conversation on Beauty and Suffering with Makoto Fujimura

One of the most difficult things to comprehend is the purpose of suffering. Why does God allow it? What is the end goal of grief?

There’s a mystery behind God’s design for the necessity of suffering—of things being more beautiful on the tailend of grief, even if we don’t see it. But, we see in Scripture that our sorrow is never without purpose. Jesus stopped to feel the sting of death—pausing to weep over the loss of a friend. Through His tears, we know that ours have purpose. Because of the gospel, we can cling to the truth that it’s better to have been broken and restored than to have never been broken in the first place.

On Thursday, November 11, join us for a night with visual artist and author Makoto Fujimura as he details the significance of the tears of Jesus and how beauty can help us make sense of suffering. To register for the seminar, click the button below.
