We have all endured much over the last few months, in many and various ways, but the planet has kept turning and the sun has risen over our horizon and set each day, regardless of the tumultuous earthly events that tested the entire world’s population to the utmost with many likening it to the last world war. But this has been a war where the entire nations of the world were united in battling a common anti-human foe.
As for the place that I inhabit with my fellow residents of Littleport, it has born witness to the basic goodness, kindness and humanity of everyone living in the village regardless of class, creed or culture.
We have all witnessed random acts of kindness, planned kind help by members of the community for those less able to help themselves, especially with shopping and picking up medications etc., spontaneous acts of neighbourliness and new friendships formed between erstwhile strangers.
In our time of isolation, we reached out to support others in whichever way we could, and on a spiritual level in common with all the religious groups in the UK who took to the internet and social media to broadcast messages of comfort, Littleport Christian Spiritualists broadcast our usual service held in the village hall every Thursday night, on Thursday nights from our own homes via a professional provider.
And because there is a record of participators, viewers, we know that there were far too many to have crammed into the hall on any ordinary evening – around 5-600 live views and ticking up to over a thousand watching the replay from one service to the next!
I am sure that our services demonstrating that we do indeed inherit eternal life and that there is communication between this existence and the next through messages from our visiting mediums (from their front parlours) often containing a modicum of humour generated by the individuals in spirit, with spiritual readings, philosophical addresses and inspirational prayers and healing minutes, will see an increase in actual attendance as we resume our Thursday gatherings that will also be broadcast.
As life for most of us returns to some semblance of normality after hundreds of thousands of untimely deaths, bereavements and sadnesses caused by the virus, there must be a shift in world consciousness for the better.
We as Christian Spiritualists endeavour, each day, to cheer and uplift others’ spirits by spreading our understanding of survival after physical death together with our basic principles which are:
- The Fatherhood and Motherhood of God
- The Brother and Sisterhood of Humankind
- The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels
- The Continuous Existence of the human soul
- Personal Responsibility
- Compensation and Retribution hereafter for all the good and evil deeds done on earth
- Eternal Progress open to every human soul
- With Liberty of Interpretation
- We accept the leadership and example of Jesus as our saviour and light of the world
On behalf of all of us at Littleport Christian Spiritualists I wish you the very best in life for this summer and hope you will look us up!
Join us in a live broadcast or catch up on Facebook to see what we are all about, and until next time, be good to yourselves, and each other, and may God bless you and your loved ones.
