Kind Words...

those calm moments shared last Sunday Morning in our Chapel were uplifting and spiritually refreshing as we listened to Professor Hugh McLeod a Derby Quaker - It always surprises me that our relaxed embracing approach attracts so few people living in Belper - without people we just have an empty historic building !

It was a lovely service from Maria, painful at times but glad to be with others to share feelings and in a safe space to rant.

Really interesting and informative service with a lovely community of people.

My thanks to Rowan for his thoughtful devotions today at our morning service with the two guest speakers from “ Upbeat Communities “ time well spent listening & learning rather than disinformation ! ⭐️

Beautiful, we have such lovely memories of you and Mum there. The external stairs & the crypt. And all the friendly people who attended.

Such a poignant service and so much to take away and contemplate. Thanks to all those who shared their precious memories and thoughts.

The beautiful photograph of the trees / so well complements our first reading at this mornings service from John Andrew Storey entitled, “ Leafs “ For many of us today at Belper Unitarian Chapel it was spiritually rewarding to have a committed Quaker sharing his approach to faith -⭐️

I sat there many time’s especially at Sunday school anniversary reciting poems. We used to sell the harvest produce for charity at the old Sunday school building on Monday, happy days

I commend these powerful words trusting that as an individual I will always have the courage to challenge those full of bigotry & hate within my life journey. Too often I play it safe rather than challenging such cruel human beings !
