He says it a little more eloquently

For those of you who "got" what I just posted, I listened to Rob Bell's "Learning to Lament in a culture of denial" just now and thought...that's what I'm trying to say.

Contrary to what people often think, the key to
easing peoples suffering is not in offering
some insidious theodicy but in allowing a
place for people to mourn and to meet others
who know what it is to have been burned by
that black sun.
