Maximilian Kolbe was a Polish priest who died as prisoner 16770 in Auschwitz, on August 14, 1941. When a prisoner escaped from the camp, the Nazis selected 10 others to be killed by starvation in reprisal for the escape. One of the 10 selected to die, Franciszek Gajowniczek, began to cry: My wife! My children! I will never see them again! At this Maximilian Kolbe stepped forward and asked to die in his place. His request was granted.
In Maximilian's cell in Auschwitz is sketched a picture of the crucified Christ. With the words "Christ was here."
Join us this Saturday (Nov 10) at 11:00 am as Pastor Kevin continues his series of spiritual reflections on things that matter.
The topic this week is called "The Problem of Pain" This problem is the primary reason people are skeptical about God.
We will address 3 questions:
1. Why doesn't God always step in to stop the pain?
2. Where is God in our suffering?
3. Will the suffering ever end?
