There is no doubt that many orthodox churches are struggling for a congregation whereas Spiritualist churches have never been as busy, well at least since the heyday at the turn of the 20th century. This is the golden age for spiritualism and much of that success can be laid at the door of the Spiritualists’ National Union and the work of modern spirualists like Arthur Findlay and Gordon Higginson. The Federation started as far back as 1890 and was pioneered by one of the leading lights in the movement – Emma Harding Britten. When the Federation became an incorporated Union, at the turn of the century, a set of principle were required that accurately described the beliefs of all spiritualists. These 7 Principles are still as valid today as they were 100 years ago.
- The Fatherhood of God.
- The Brotherhood of Man.
- The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels.
- The continuous existence of the human soul.
- Personal responsibility.
- Compensation and retribution hereafter for all the good and evil deeds done on earth.
- Eternal progress open to every human soul.
The union now promotes, teaches and inspires in order that the message of spiritualism can reach everyone. If you are interested in being a medium or a healer then the Arthur Findlay college is a world renowned institute of learning.
