  1. Did anything strike you/stand out from the message?
  2. How do people often “twist the truth” in regard to suffering and tragedy?
  3. Do you believe that tragedy is random and can happen at any time to anyone?
  4. Why is it dangerous to try to “connect the dots” from a tragedy to make sense of it?
  5. Do you know anyone who turn against God, or away from him, because of tragedy? How did that play out in their life?
  6. The apostle Paul had a different take on suffering. Read Romans 8:18-27 and 2 Corinthians 2:16-18. Paul talked about three seasons: Creation, The End Time, and then our present time. How can understanding what happened in the past and what will happen in the future give us hope now?
  7. Do you know anyone who handled a tragedy well emotionally? How did that look?
  8. Imagine a tragedy happening in your life. How would you like to handle it?
