Young Aucklanders Ask Big Questions

"Who are you?" "What is your purpose in life?" "What is happiness?"

These are some of the questions that young members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and students at Massey University (Albany campus) discussed this week during the university's "Spirituality Week."


A group of young Latter-day Saints used blackboards to invite comments and discussion from passers-by.

Ben Brodie, a Latter-day Saint from Perth, Australia, said the questions "helped people to think inwardly."


"We had a few really nice conversations with those in other faiths," he said. 

"We also received a lot of compliments from the people who interacted with us who enjoyed sharing ideas and looking at what other people contributed."
