Major catastrophes inevitably stimulate conversations about major matters. Where is God when tsunamis hit and bury entire villages, killing thousands? Where is God when pilots intentionally decimate buildings with their own airplanes and rip mothers from their own children? Where is God when violent earthquakes crush bodies and infrastructures beyond their breaking points? Such tragedies launch transcendent questions.
Why would a loving God allow unthinkable horror? Is He impotent? Do great calamities grant greater evidence of greatest ineptitude?
