All kinds of wonderful remind me of the world

All kinds of wonderful remind me of the world .

I 'm not a religious person by nature .

I spent many a year at Sunday School being brought up in the Baptist faith , life was a whirl of  services , lessons, parties and fun.

But a shadow hung over these times in the nature of racism certain people were not welcome at my church for a short time. But certain people rose up within the church and quelled this unrighteousness.

And when on a school trip to Normandy I wandered off at lunch into the forest and came upon an open chapel dedicated to those of the First World War . Chairs were stacked up , dried up leaves crunched and scrunched on the floor, then a breeze a sort of mistral whipped them into the air , souls stirred: they were remembered.

But the world is a wonderful place when we step out from its sometimes eerie shadows or forgotten corners.

Sometimes faith .. Well faith can be of the heart .

  1. I'm not sure i could get by without faith...I probably wouldn't consider myself the best of the best but I still go back to it. I love your last line about faith being of the heart

  2. Very emotive post, Claire. I'm not churchy at all though I used to be very much so. Lost my faith when dad died - far too young.

  3. no I am another that has no use for faith, maybe I would have a better life if I did. If there was a "god" up there then why does he let some of the truly awful things happen as they do?
