"Following the Man of Sorrows" with Dr. David Beach

Suffering. Salvation’s conduit. People are often reluctant to talk about suffering, unable to find words. This reluctance usually lasts until, in the midst of crisis, the only way ahead is through suffering. In these crises, people typically reach out to caregivers—pastors and priests, counselors and social workers. However, what if the same reluctance affects these caregivers? What if they, too, are often unable to find adequate words?

Jesus—Man of Sorrows—makes plain the imperative of taking up our cross. How is this accomplished? This presentation offers an answer, a theology of suffering focused on spiritual formation—formation into a suffering God’s image. This formational theology, emerging from lived experiences in valleys of adversity, offers conceptual and practical ways to narrate biographies of adversity, to give sorrow words and grow.
