Susequently, in a complete change of topic, we were given a literary appreciation of Winnie the Pooh, following which, in another complete switch of subject, we were given an overview of developments in the study of the relationship between science and religion. This thought-provoking talk touched upon Big Bang cosmology and the theology of creation, evolution understood theologically and categorisations of the science-religion relationship. With further shifts of theme in our next two talks, we heard the story of a French woman who, having spent time in Spain during the Spanish Civil War, ended up marrying an Englishman and settling in the West Country, and we were given some background about the local ladies, from all walks of life, who became prominent in Exeter's suffrage movement. We have also had a presentation about the sometimes enigmatic messages found on old postcards. This session included an opportunity for members to try writing their own amusing or poignant postcard message.
Our future programme continues to offer talks on a similarly wide range of subject matter.
