A workshop led by Susanna Pain
A talk by Nikolai Blaskow: Thursday 22 October 7:30pm - 9pm
Are (protest) atheists excluded from the table of God?
The pandemic, like all pandemics and catastrophes (human-made and natural like the holocaust and the Lisbon earthquake), cause people to not just question the existence of G-d, but also to accuse G-d (Voltaire’s “j’accuse”) of standing by and doing nothing (the bystander syndrome).
Essentially, G-d is accused of committing a war crime. In Christian theological terms, we call any defence of G-d a theodicy (from the Greek ‘God-justice’).
Come and join Nikolai for a discussion on this vital and timely question. His 20 minute presentation will be followed by a Q & A session, starting at 7:30pm and finishing promptly at 9pm.
