Early Comments by Steve Middleton

Steve Middleton shared an original poem with the Vestry last Wednesday which imagines what passers by might have thought when Margaret Johnstone was originally constructing the Chapel in 1848.  We’re grateful she did!

 

Early Comments

She’s hired an architect to build a Chapel …
Why does it need to be so big?  There’s not 125 people in this county …
Why doesn’t she save that money, she might need it …
She should spend that money on her daughters …
She should use wood.  Bricks are too expensive …
She’s building a church for people she doesn’t even know …
People will never stop talking about this …

 

They still are.  Thank you Steve.
