Crave: How should we feel about suffering?

This week is part 3 in our series on suffering. We’ve looked at why suffering happens and what God thinks about it, this time we investigate how we should feel about all the suffering that happens (to us and to other people) and how that fits in with Christian beliefs. We’ll talk about how emotions like anger and hate are not always bad, that they are okay within certain boundaries and motives (e.g. It’s okay to be angry about poverty, it’s not okay to be angry at the ref at an Auskick game).
