Life isn't fair.... "Stuff" happens. How do we deal with suffering?

The historical Anabaptists dealt with suffering and persecution.

This day will be a day of connecting with others from the Network / interested in Anabaptism.

Speakers and topics:
Simon Jones will be talking about his time in Calais - "How Suffering Subverts the Powerful"
James Fehr will be speaking on his work in Lesbos, Greece with the refugees
Graham McKay will end the day with "Compassion, Mental Health and Wellbeing"
Stuart Murray Williams will talk briefly about Anabaptist perspectives on suffering.

There will be plenty of things for children to do - we even have a travelling zoo!
