Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich!

Genius, that power which dazzles mortal eyes, is oft but perservance in disguise. (Heney Willard Austin).

When is a situation hopeless? There is a tendency today for people to quite rather than try to win out over a seemingly hopeless situation. “Be realistic – why knock yourself out?” Is the phrase used.

I’m reminded of the story of two frogs that fell in a pail of cream. One frog swam around for a while, then gave up and drowned. The other refused to quit, paddled for all he was worth to climb up the side of the pail. To an observer it was obviously hopeless. Yet the furious paddling turned the cream to butter and the frog was able to jump out to safety.
