I didn't tell Doug this so's not to offend him, but I reckon people went to chapel because they were scared of what could happen. If this heat continued more people would die so maybe it's worth believing again, that's what they were thinking.
Archie shook his head. He said it was because when you walked into chapel it was quiet, a different sort of quiet to the quiet of outside, and it was cool on your face.
It was a place, Archie said, that seemed a lot further away than everywhere else from the burning fires of Hell outside.
