Join us for an evening of engaging conversation while Michael Ramsden, Vince Vitale, and Alycia Wood of RZIM tackle the question “Has Christianity Failed?” In addition, they will touch on the questions “Where is God in Suffering?” and “Why Believe in Fairy Tales?”. An open question and answer period will follow.
