Where Is God When It Hurts?

February 2, 2019

Our ex minister, Tim Thorpe, lost his son Sam suddenly, at the age of 13 in June 1997. He is coming to Penrith to talk about his loss and how they coped, or didn’t cope- I don’t remember him talking publicly about it since.
If anyone can make sense of the question ‘Where is God when it hurts?’ then Tim can.
The aim is threefold-
1) To help people going through difficult times
2) To raise money for the Sam Thorpe Trust Fund and Child Bereavement UK
3) To encourage people to explore the Christian faith – Alpha starts the following week on Thursday 7th February.
Please invite friends along and to use Tim’s words, ‘soak the evening in prayer’.
Taking place at Ullswater Community College, with free tickets available from the church office.
