A Message from GGSC Board President, Michael Franklin
"We Live in Interesting Times"

There is a saying, taken to be a curse, that goes "May you live in interesting times."

The saying first appeared in the West in 1936 in an address by Sir Austen Chamberlain, an influential British statesman. Speaking in response to the German violation of the Treaty of Locarno, Chamberlain said “It is not so long ago that a member of the Diplomatic Body in London, who spent some years of his service in China, told me there was a Chinese curse which took the form of saying: May you live in interesting times. There is no doubt that the curse has fallen upon us. We move from one crisis to another. We suffer one disturbance and shock after another.”

Much like Chamberlain and the people of 1936 Britain, we now live in "interesting times." Coronavirus and the attendant pandemic, economic disasters, personal losses and general disruption of our society have impacted our daily lives in ways we could never have imagined. Simple pleasures such as taking a walk or chatting with a friend have become complex and risky endeavors, and the core parts of life-earning a living, getting an education, maintaining a comfortable home, attending religious services- have faced conditions and setbacks that sometimes seemed almost insurmountable.

We are indeed experiencing chaos, danger and anxiety, but these conditions bring with them excitement and opportunity. In adapting to the onslaught of these "interesting times" we have found new ways to work, with remote or at-home working becoming the norm rather than the exception and proving to be quite productive. Home schooling and distant learning have gone mainstream and have evolved to fill the needs well for at least a while. We are adapting our homes and ourselves to our being in them continually, becoming more efficient in using our space and surroundings, becoming better cooks.

Our religious services have become virtual rather than in-person, thereby affording us the opportunity to meet each service with people from around the world in addition to around the neighborhood; bringing us Mediums from far and wide to join our own Mediums to provide the messages of peace, hope and continuity which we need so much.

I do not remember a time in our history which was so full, which day by day brought us so many new objects of anxiety and of interest. But, I also do not remember a time when so many worked together, took to the streets in such numbers in the name of justice, or showed such kindnesses, large and small, in the face of tragedy.

Through this time and its challenges, our understanding of each other has grown in great measure; and while understanding each other is not enough, it is an indispensable beginning. These are times of danger and uncertainty, but they are also the most creative of any time in modern history.

We may never see again what we once considered "normal life," but I believe that we now have and are building can far surpass what was and move us on to a better and more complete existence.

For One Week in 1871, San Francisco Went Loopy Over ‘Haunted’ Windows | KQED

San Francisco ghost story from 1871 👻 A fun read, enjoy!

kqed.org The creepy North Beach ghost windows caused such hysteria, they ended up on the front page of 'The San Francisco Chronicle.'

See below, a call for entries about spiritual resilience during the pandemic, to be published in the next TNS Summit Spiritualist Magazine 👇🏼

A Note from the TNS Summit Spiritualist Magazine Editor:
Hello, fellow Spiritualists. This is certainly a difficult time for many of us, here in the United States and across the globe.
There is practically no way to avoid the news of the coronavirus and its consequences. But there are some positive things that can out of our experiences:
a renewed sense of our spiritual center and connection to Infinite Intelligence and our increased need to keep connected in intimate ways with others at a distance.
If you would like to share how you are coping with the stresses in your lives on a spiritual level, please send me brief (one paragraph) notes on how you are coping with the coronavirus with your spiritual insights gained through Spiritualism. I am wishing to publish these writings in our future issues. Please include your name and church or camp affiliation, if you are part of one. Thank you.
