A well attended meeting was held in the Church Hall of St Thomas’ Church on 19 November 2008. Barbara Markham spoke about life after death. She started by using a recording of the chorister Andrew Johnston singing ‘Tears of Heaven’ and explained that the theme was to remind us that November is the month of the Holy Souls.
She then touched on the beliefs of other churches and religions concerning life after death. She emphasised experiments that have taken place with EVP (electric voice phenomena), demonstrating an example from an audio tape. She felt that eventually science would prove that life after death did exist. She ended her talk with a reminder of our own death and the confidence with which we can expect Our Lady to be with us in it as we have so often prayed to her with innumerable hail Marys during our life.
The meeting ended with a vigorous discussion on this controversial subject.
