CONVERSATION 1

In the Hospital Parking Lot

Wrestling with Evil and Suffering

CATHY DAVIDSON TAKES HER JOB TOO SERIOUSLY, or so her friends tell her. Having just begun her fifteenth year at Turnerville Memorial Hospital, she’s considered a seasoned veteran by her colleagues. But her interactions with dying patients always take an emotional toll on her. Even during nursing school, when working on the relatively joyful maternity ward, Cathy spent many evenings in tears on the bus ride home. Whenever a premature baby struggled to survive or complications prevented new mothers and fathers from celebrating in the usual ways, Cathy struggled more than most of her classmates. Now she specializes in oncology and the tears flow almost daily.

Many of her nurse colleagues develop a detached professionalism; others simply don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the difficult issues of life. But Cathy can’t seem to apply either solution. More than most people, she wrestles with questions like, How could a good God allow such evil and suffering? None of the answers she’s heard so far have satisfied her.

Her longtime friend and colleague, Janet Walsh, shares her depth of concern for these questions but somehow finds answers. Janet’s religion gives her a sense of stability that Cathy finds appealing yet elusive.

Living near each other, they commute on the same bus, carpool to the same soccer practices, and yell at the same swim meets. Over the years, they’ve become good friends. Although Cathy attended church as a child, once the pressures of work and motherhood filled her schedule, church dropped by the wayside. Janet has a similar background but has always made her faith a priority. She had attended Nurses’ Christian Fellowship throughout college and even served as an advisor for a chapter at Turnerville High.

The bus stop bench at the southwest corner of the hospital parking lot provides a location for many a conversation about pain. There, hospital workers and visitors wait for their transport to home. On this particular Thursday, Janet and Cathy engage in the first of two such exchanges on that bench. A second conversation—by two other hospital workers, in the same location, on the same topic, with a very different tone—will take place hours later.
