Gospel-Centered Counseling: Grief and Suffering

Southwestern Seminary’s Biblical Counseling Conference

Christians will suffer as part of living in a broken world. Sometimes, we suffer because of issues that we can’t control. Other times, we suffer because of sinful choices. How do we find comfort in God when we are despondent or confused? How do we comfort others who are grieving? How can churches provide support? Join us as we examine these difficult issues from a biblical perspective with practical guidance.
