Holden Chapel

In-between our own services I preached at Holden Chapel near Bolton-by-Bowland yesterday afternoon. A congregational chapel like Salem, it's about sixty years older. They are a good, faithful people and a mixture of ages. We often support each others' meetings. It was fitting then, the one our hymns was Blest be the Tie that Binds:

We share each other’s woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear.
