The Benefit of the Doubt

I found this video last week and was really moved.  It is one of the most difficult question a religious person can possibly be asked: why does a loving and all-powerful God allow people to suffer?  You can answer glibly or maybe thoughtfully but speaking honestly, for me it isn’t easy.  I found the attitude of the wonderful Stef Reid in this video refreshing.  She has had to go through an experience most of us will never even come close to and yet her simple statement “Im going to give the creator of the world the benefit of the doubt” is such an inspiring vision of faith.  Her simple love of life has a lesson for us all when we feel hard done by.
