Here is an article written by Gordon Higginson in 1989. Many of the issues he discusses remain as relevant today 30 years later. Here is the article in full:
During the past few years, there has been a tremendous revival of interest in Spiritualism. The Press has published thousands of columns on our subject, some of it favourable, much of it adverse. Publicity meetings have drawn capacity crowds, and many of those attending, especially the young, have become interested enough to commence attending their local Spiritualist church. There is a tremendous spirit of enquiry among the youth of today’s world, a genuine seeking after spiritual truths and knowledge.
This is surely our great opportunity to make the world sit up and take notice of our teachings and make the masses realise that Spiritualists are not mere ghost-hunters, but persons of a new kind of spiritual leadership and knowledge. I believe the time has come for true Spiritualists to come to the forefront – to stand and be counted. Our mission is to spiritualise the world, to turn the attention of the world inwards to the immortality of the soul.
