What do we learn from this? We learn that people in Sale ask deep questions. Even though some people asked questions like, ‘Can I have a million dollars?’ most people were thoughtful and even deep in their thinking. There is also a much stronger tendency to believe in God than disbelieve, with a large number of people in town confused about God.

22 Feb   Why is there so much pain and suffering? (Listen to the talk here)
1 Mar     What happens after I die?
