How Did The Universe Begin? (#1711) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Is The Universe Theologically Ambiguous? (#1712) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Death Disrupted? (#1701) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

How Does Faith Work? (#1702) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
