In this research and writing assignment we want you to explore the role of God in Disasters and Catastrophes. How have different people throughout the centuries viewed the involvement of God in these type of events? How has it influenced their individual responses? What about entire cities or nations? How have they responded to this idea of God’s involvement? We are looking forward to seeing what your research turns up on this fascinating topic.
There are two parts to this tasks:
First – choose a reading (from the “Reading Options” below) in which the author engages in a meaningful discussion surrounding the question “Where is God in all of this?”. Then in a discussion thread write in 100 words or more a summary of the reading as well as your reaction to the author’s main points.

This assignment is worth a total of 5 points: 3 points for your original post and 2 points for posting a reply to one of your fellow students post.
