When pain is real, why is God silent?
Each of us experiences pain. That’s part of being human. Though time really does help to heal wounds, nothing can erase our memories. In the four-week study A Crazy, Holy Grace, by Frederick Buechner, you’ll learn about the healing power of those memories and about how to use past graces from God to close old wounds. Study questions and prompts, which are included for each of Buechner’s essays, lead your group into discussions about letting go, the power of hidden secrets, rising from the ruins, and listening for the quiet voice of God.
In this session titled The Struggle and Hope of Memory, Michael Poteet discusses Buechner's exploration of doubt and hope through the lens of grief and personal loss. This session features a clip from his sermon, A Moment of Grace, where Buechner talks about a moment of unexpected grace from the life of Maya Angelou.
