A friend just lost his mother in a mass shooting back home. Several people were killed and more were injured. You go to the funeral with your friend because you want to offer some comfort.
The pastor of their home church preaches at the funeral and says that we Christians can take some comfort in the fact that this was God’s timing and all in God’s plan, even if it was not in ours. This was all in God’s providence, even though it was an evil action that led to her death. Your friend isn?t sure he agrees with the pastor, but he knows you are taking this theology class and wants to know what you think about what the pastor said.
What do you tell your friend?
