Artful Conversations in Suffering and Faith
Monday, 24 June, 7:00 pm–9:00 pm AEST
How do we discover faith in the midst of extreme suffering? Take the opportunity to consider the experience of suffering in both the release of a new academic work, “Suffering in Paul”, and the thoughtful, artistic expressions of a gifted artist. Theologians, artist, and community join in an artful conversation in suffering and faith.
- Zohreh Izadikia is an artist who has exhibited on a number of occasions. As a refugee, art has become a language of faith and hope.
- Sean Winter is Head of Pilgrim College, the theological college of the Uniting Church Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
- Siu Fung Wu is Lecturer in New Testament studies at Whitley College.
You will be able to purchase a copy of Siu Fung Wu’s new book, “Suffering in Paul”, for a discounted price of $35!
Monday 24 June 2019, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Please arrive at 6:30 pm, the event will begin at 7:00 pm sharp

Whitley College is a culturally diverse community of learners committed to practical expressions of God’s activity in the world. We wrestle together in spiritual formation through theological reflection, creative exploration and academic rigour.
Shaped by the Bible, and drawing on our Baptist heritage, we are responsive to the contemporary needs of church and society, affirming liberty of conscience in conversation with other traditions of religion and spirituality.
Our educational ethos unifies heart, thought and hands, giving priority to personal and social transformation.
