Topic: A Biblical Understanding of Suffering
Instructor: Andre Bay
Hosted by: Shore Baptist Church, Auckland
Great philosophers, theologians, doctors and every other person who ever lived on the face of the earth, have either thought of, discussed or experienced suffering in their lives. It comes to the wicked as well as the saint in Christ. We hope to look at this topic asking ourselves how we as believers can understand suffering and deal with suffering from a Biblical perspective. This should be beneficial in our own lives and also be helpful to those around us whom we love and want to care for.
The Roving Classroom is a yearly program involving four block-study sessions that are taught by various pastors within the fellowship (and on some occasions, by invited guest speakers).The classroom is hosted at varied (and roving) geographical locations around New Zealand, as each church offers to host a weekend. Each year the calendar will be ordered around the four traditional theological categories (Exegetical; Systematic; Historical; Practical Theology). Topics within these broader categories are both diverse and relevant, allowing for a truly holistic ministerial training.
