Speaking to Community Groups: Q and A Time

Last evening I spoke to a church group in my home town. The title of my talk was "Spiritual Women Helping Each Other" and it was about 40 minutes long. After my talk I asked audience members for their thoughts and comments. My request was met with silence. Had my talk been a dismal failure? Finally, two people spoke up and then a third. "We're in awe," the woman said. "We don't know what to say." Apparently my worry had been in vain. Audience members understood my talk, followed it on the handout I provided, and were moved by my words. Several friends came to hear me and I was moved by their kindness. If you give a talk and get few questions and answers afterwards, don't worry. The audience may have been moved by your message and will be thinking about it for days to come.
