A spiritual check-up

We have added a page to our web site under the OUR CHURCH tab to 'A spiritual check-up'.

This is an adaptation of Dr. William E. Sangster's 1952 Westminster Pamphlet, devised as an aid in the spiritual equivalent of a medical check-up. Some of the wording and the order of the sections has been changed from the original, but the emphasis remains the same.

He recommended that one shouldn't hurry through it, but to take it slowly, paying particular attention to the questions that make us most uneasy, giving about 2 hours to the whole exercise, or 30 minutes to a couple of sections over the course of a week. He closed with the warning:

"If you are too busy for this, you are too busy."

This is still true.

Do please have a look and do your own spiritual check-up.
