ways of interpreting some aspects of that teaching or drawing certain
consequences from it. This will always be the case as the Spirit guides us
towards the entire truth.”

The first group was all men, and the second one all women. The topic was the same, Church reform.
Both events were very enjoyable, in that they were very receptive groups, and there was no pressure in speaking to them.
