Seminar Report: Justice and Suffering
This seminar was sponsored by Edith Murphy Foundation and invites perspectives from Jewish, Islamic, Christian and Secularist backgrounds including chaplains, clergy/imams and academics on the issue of justice and suffering.

The aim is to discuss the issues of justice and suffering that they may have thought about, encountered sufferers or even experienced over the years.

The brief included a scenario of a man having lost his entire family in a house fire a month earlier, he was the only survivor and subsequent suffered in various ways such
as psychologically, emotionally, physically and spiritually – questioning his faith in God and searching to make sense of his existence.

The conference included presentations from Jewish, Islamic, Christian and Humanist perspectives followed by discussions groups which will focus on four main themes,
