Fulwood Old Chapel - a unitarian meeting place
8a Whiteley Lane, Fulwood, Sheffield S10 4GL www.fulwood-old-chapel.org.uk email@example.com
I invite you to join with me in community at 11am each Sunday, by lighting a chalice (any kind of candle or tea light will make a perfectly acceptable chalice) and spending some time reading the service which we are offering as a pdf - either out loud, or quietly to yourself.
There is something very powerful in knowing that we are joining together with others at the same time, with the same intention, even if we are not in the same building.
I have strong memories of doing this with people across the UK and Ireland when my good friend, and colleague, Rev Bill Darlison was ill, with liver cancer. We agreed that every evening at 10pm we would light a candle and say a prayer for Bill, or just hold him in our circle of loving concern. Bill is convinced that this is why he astounded his doctors by not dying. Whether or not you believe this, the fact of knowing that a whole community was doing this at the same time, made it a very powerful ritual for all of us who took part.
Please don't hesitate to ring me for any kind of pastoral support, or just for a chat (my numbers are below). If I can't answer when you ring, please do leave a message and I will ring you back as soon as I am able.
During this challenging and difficult time I send much love and many blessings to all of you and your loved ones
Minister with Underbank and Fulwood Unitarians in Sheffield
