This talk was given on February 13, 2010, for the Saint John Community in Portland. The theme for this month helps us to develop a Christian view of the world, created by a God that is Goodness itself. Therefore, it leads us to a positive view of reality, of life and of ourselves. How do we understand then the fact that there is evil in this world and that it seems to be so prevalent? How do we attain a balanced and accurate view in this regard? We encourage you to listen, to reflect and to pray about it, so you can come to a personal understanding of this issues and you can attempt a response to these questions.
