6: What is God’s Role in Trials and Tragedies of the World?

Everywhere we look there are tragedies playing out around the globe and it’s tempting to wonder “where is God” when faced with it all. How much does He know about our suffering and how involved is He in the pain that is so much a part of our everyday life?

In this episode of A Course in Miracles Radio, Circle Founder Robert Perry and Executive Director Emily Bennington explore the world as a meeting point between human mistakes and God’s correction. As the interview covers, heartbreaking events result from the combination of ego and free will, but God responds by giving us ways to correct for those mistakes including the opportunity to choose again and Guides that will lead us back home.
