On Sunday morning, we listened to a recording of this wonderful talk John gave one year ago, just 9 days before he left the body. We began by singing one of John’s songs, and concluded with discussion of his topic and reminiscences about our beloved and much missed friend.

You can also listen to the entire original talk, with John leading the choir in song and the original discussion following the talk, by clicking here.

Why does evil exist in God’s universe? Probably most of us wrestle with this question some time or other. If God is the source of evil, how can we worship him/her? Better not to have anything to do with such a God. On the other hand, when the going gets tough we feel the need for a helping hand. The divine Self within seems to be an abstraction. To whom can we pray? Some answers to ponder are given during this talk.
