Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich

Facing the sun

The conquest of life is found in joy. Deliberately to turn our faces towards the sun, to choose it, to cultivate it – this is at least one of the secrets of a virile and victorious life…There are two things which devils cannot endure. The first is sunshine, and the second is song. They cannot endure light, neither can they endure laughter…The songs of the redeemed and the laughter of little children playing innocently in the sun is to every kind of devil a thing insufferable! If you want to transfer your depression to John Bunyan’s Giant Despair, and give him what he has given you, sit in the sun and sing!
