Brooke Butler

Role: Facilitator

Brooke┬áhas wrestled with questions concerning meaning and purpose in life over a number of years, working with students on three continents. After passing through a time of intense searching through Eastern philosophies and existentialism in his late teens, he found a framework that seemed to correspond to reality in Christianity. In college, he struggled to ascertain whether he “believed what was true or simply wanted his beliefs to be true.” As a result, his faith and understanding of the basis for his beliefs were greatly deepened. Living in Croatia, which was racked by a civil war, over the past twenty years and dealing with a number of difficult family situations, his focus has been on evil, suffering and finding joy in the midst of uncertainities and pain.
