This Sunday’s passage, Romans 5:1-1 forces us to think about troubles in our lives and where is God in the midst of our struggles.
We are going to talk a bit about the role (And necessity?) that suffering plays in our lives and where God is in the midst of suffering. We will then talk about how we think about suffering and struggle as our faith stretches and grows and in particular, in work with young people around these important questions. To help us with that conversation, we welcome my friend, Amy Kim Kyremes-Parks is a respected Christian Educator in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and an all-around wonderful human being.
Amy Kim Kyremes-Parks is the Director of Spiritual Formation at Fairmount Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Amy Kim loves creating space for folks to interact with the Holy through art and opportunities for disruption. Amy Kim also serves on the board of More Light Presbyterians as a co-moderator. Her life is shared with her amazing spouse, Justin, children, Natalily & Isaiah and Obed the poodle.
Amy Kim will also be having conversations with our Christian Education Team over the weekend, as well as help lead future conversations with our parents and youth.
