Interfaith Conference: Reconciling Human Suffering and Existence of God

The Buffalo Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will hold its nineteenth interfaith conference on Sunday June 9th, 2013 between 2:00 – 5:00 pm at the Millennium Hotel, 2040 Walden Avenue, Cheektowaga, NY 14225, across from the Walden Galleria Mall.
The topic of discussion: Reconciling Human Suffering and Existence of God
Invited speakers representing Hinduism, Judaism, Humanism, Christianity and Islam will present their views about a topic that raises some strong sentimental questions about God and His governance, nature & even His very existence. If there is a God who is merciful & loving, how come His creations suffer (or He ‘let’ them suffer) from natural & man-made calamities? Why does God let evil-minded people carry out their evil missions that cause innocent people to suffer? Does human suffering mean that God does not care about His creation? Does human suffering mean that God does not exist? These and similar questions are found in the minds of many.
The speakers are as follows:
1. Dr. Philip Sinha, Hindu Cultural Society, Representing Hinduism
2. Rabbi Joshua Strosberg, Congregation Ohr Tzion, Representing Judaism
3. Professor Brahm Segal (Academic Physician), Representing Humanism
4. Ms. Eileen Warner, St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church, Representing Christianity
5. Imam Naseem Mahdi, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Representing Islam
Each speaker will speak for 15 minutes. The speeches will be followed by a question & answer session and a break at the end where refreshments will be served.
You are cordially invited to attend the session & feel free to pass the invitation to anyone who may be interested.
Admission is free and open to all. 
Please RSVP by Friday June 7th, 2013 via email at or by phone at 716-371-9872.
