A 79-year-old man seeking an heir for his $375,000 estate said Monday he would give it to a church -- if he gets some answers to spiritual questions.

Clayton Goward is inviting clergy from all faiths -- and anyone else who is interested -- to a forum on the afterlife.

"I'm hoping someone there will enlighten me, and I can feel better about facing eternity," Goward said.

In July, Goward put a personal ad in the Star Tribune asking for ideas on what to do with his estate. Not being on good terms with his three sons, he said he had no worthy heirs.

Sunday, Goward placed another ad in the Star Tribune, listing several questions he has about spirituality.

Next month he will invite up to 50 people to his Pine City home in east-central Minnesota to discuss religion.
