Arriving in the village of Lower Aghada in the south of Ireland he took residence with an elderly lady who treated him like her own son. Knowing of the death of his wife she did all in her power to provide accommodations suited to his profession.
His invitation to join a debating group in the local pub not only provided the distraction to put the past in the past, it also introduced him to a group of men who would become part of his extended family.
His attendance at morning mass in the company of his landlady brought the wrath of his debating buddies. Their challenges to his Christian beliefs were relentless and vitriolic. However, his radical interpretation of biblical text caused them to rethink their own opinions. The challenge was now for them to look at scripture in a new way."
