Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich

Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday... and ALL is well

The thoughts of some amazing people who have lived in Norwich still inspire us to this day. If you are in Norwich you should make the effort to visit St Julian’s church off Rowen Road. It was from this ancient church that Mother Julian wrote Revelations of Divine Love. On one of the windows in the chapel you can read one of her best-known quotes: “All shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.

Sadly, I meet almost everyday people who think quite the opposite, that all is not well. We can’t blame them as they constantly tune into the TV, read newspapers and listen to the radio which is full of negative news. Is it any wonder that so many people these days need tranquilizers to help manage their stress and anxiety?

I recently came across the following poem by an anonymous author – it encouraged me and I pray it also helps you.

With every rising of the sun
Think of your life as just begun.

The past has shrived and buried deep
All yesterdays – here let them sleep…

Concern yourself with but today,
Woo it and teach it to obey.

Your wish and will. Since time began
Today has been the friend of man…

You and today! A soul sublime
And the great pregnant hour of time.

With God between to bind the twain –
Go forth I say – attain – attain.
