What does Christianity teach about the problem of suffering that helps people live

 with serious illness today?

This lecture draws from two sources to speak about the problem of suffering and medical ethics: scripture and a recent spiritual autobiography written by Martin D’Amore, MD, a Christian with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

Thurs, Feb 6, 2013, 8pm

The ensemble has performed across the United States, and taken International tours to New Zealand and Germany. Their program will include Faure – Trio, Op. 120 and Brahms – Trio in B major, Op. 8.

The Poinsett Piano Trio was founded in 2008 by pianist David Gross, violinist Deirdre Hutton, and cellist Christopher Hutton. All three members live in Greenville, South Carolina where they teach at Furman University. As a trio they have played concerts across the United States, and International tours to New Zealand and Germany. They returned to New Zealand for a 13-concert tour in May of 2013.

The ensemble is named in honor of Joel Roberts Poinsett, a statesman, physician, and botanist from South Carolina. Like the members of the trio he had an international life and career: living in England as a child, training in medical school in Scotland, traveling extensively in Europe and South America, and later was elected to Congress before serving as Minister (ambassador) to Mexico. Poinsett is most remembered today as the discoverer of the Mexican Poinsettia plant, whose bright red flowers are popularly included in festive Christmas decorations throughout the world.www.poinsettpianotrio.com
