On Thursday I was travelling north and east to the Arbroath Spiritualist Centre. George and Margaret Faulkner have put a lot of hard work into the centre and have been stalwarts in the SNU for many years. Margaret is President of the Scottish and Irish District Council, an excellent medium, and tutor, who spends a lot of her time furthering our religion in Germany. George is now Vice President of the S&IDC after being treasurer for many years. The Centre’s address is 20-22 Commerce Street, Arbroath
On Saturday it was again north and east but not so far this time, to ASK, Dunfermline for their ‘open day’. The rain did not stop a good turn out and I hope a pleasant time was had by all who attended. Jock McArthur, Kerry McLeod medium and tutor, and a very enthusiastic committee provide varied workshops and special events throughout the year.
Norm sent me an email asking to explain the SNU’s 2nd Principle: -
The Brotherhood of Man
All human beings are members of one divine family because they spring from the same creative force.
Each person should understand the needs of other individuals in order to assist them
Spiritualists must look not only to the material necessities of their fellow creatures but also to their spiritual needs............
I take my ‘psychic research’ seriously and keep it completely separate from my church work. Last week a letter gave a big boost to our small team who work hard in this area. For sixteen years I have worked a lot with “psychometry” (The ability or art of divining information about people or events associated with an object solely by touching or being near to it.) Our small dedicated group try to be as professional as we can and in 90% of our research we never know anything about what we are working with.This sort of thing is not an exact science and as well as a lot of success we have had our failures as well. Four years ago we appeared not to have got a single thing right about a small vase that had been sent to us from abroad. Not valuable, but we got nothing at all that could connect with the person who had been the owner of the vase for half a century. That has to be accepted in this sort of work, so the results were filed away and forgotten about. Then one day last week a letter arrived from the curator of the small museum that sent us the vase. On its return the item was then wrongly labelled, so it now turns out that the information we collected was much better that was first thought.
