Analyzing Empirical Notions of Suffering: Advancing Youth Dialogue and Education
Baring, Rito V.
Religious Education, v105 n2 p157-174 Mar 2010
This article explores the possibilities of advancing youth dialogue and education among the Filipino youth using empirical notions of students on suffering. Examining empirical data, this analysis exposes uncharted notions of suffering and shows relevant meanings that underscore the plausible trappings of youth dialogue and its benefits on education via the Christian-Hindu analysis. The Christian-Hindu experience is one aspect of the Asian dialogue via student mindsets of suffering. Their stories of human suffering account for some appealing narratives which touch on their need for God. Youth narratives of suffering reflect the human struggle in faith to find God.
