Pain, pain and more pain…

painkillersSo I’ve been looking at pain a bit recently as I’ve been suffering from a bad back, and I’ve asked a few people to do some guest posts on this. It’s such an important area of faith, learning to deal with pain and suffering, and how we relate that to our own faith. For many we don’t think about this issue until we are faced with it ourself, which then makes it hard to see with any clarity as we are affected by the pain we are in.

So, the plan is to publish these guest posts over the next few weeks when I’m likely to be more incapacitated than I am at the mo, as I have my back op. I hope it’s going to give some different viewpoints on pain and maybe be a conversation starter, so watch this space…


Here’s some other resources on pain and suffering too:
