Wednesday saw me off to visit South Bromsgrove High School Technology and Language College – to talk about Buddhist ideas of Life after Death – and the Problem of Evil.
It was a memorable trip..
I was almost late due to transport difficulties – and our second session was interrupted by a fire alarm – it has been ages since I have lined up with 1300 pupils and staff in a large sports area.. That was made up for by cake – as one of the group was celebrating her 18th birthday: so on balance an enjoyable visit..
The group asked some very good questions – and it was a pleasure to come and talk to so thoughtful and reflective a class – good luck with the A2 exams!
For more on the problem of evil (buy our A-level Religious Studies Problem of Evil DVD here !) – see the post at http://r-p-e.blogspot.com/2008/03/evil-stalks-west-midlands-cadbury.html – and look at the YouTube clip, and the other links in that post. On Buddhism – there are great resources at Access to Insight – I would start with their subject index.
