 Description: When Frederick Buechner was a young boy, his father committed suicide. Ever after, Buechner has grappled with the nature of pain, grief, and grace. An affirmation that the God who might seem silent is ever near, this study will help small groups approach and engage the spiritual and theological contemplations in Buechner’s book, A Crazy, Holy Grace. Through his essays, the reader finds what Buechner has realized – that the God who might seem silent is ever near. Demonstrating that, in the end, we all have the same story, these sessions explore the concepts of pain, loss, the healing power of memories, and the use of past goodness and grace from God to close old wounds.

The leader guide provides a wealth of discussion questions, suggestions for activities to engage participants more fully, a call to action and a closing prayer for each session. With introductions and closing by Michael S. Poteet, the four closed-captioned sessions include:

1. The Gates of Pain (11:54 min.) – the Parable of the Talents
2. A Crazy, Holy Grace (14:03 min.) – life experiences as gifts from God
3. The Magical Room of Memory (11:02 min.) – salvation comes daily; King David in Chronicles
4. The Struggle and Hope of Memory (13:20 min.) – a story from Maya Angelou on race and relationships
