in 1883, trance mediumship has played a very significant role in
the general mission and ministry of the First Spiritual Temple.
To bear witness to genuine trance communication, where a Spirit
teacher comes forward to inspire and instruct, is, truly, a remarkable

our Church has witnessed countless trance addresses, given through
various mediums, over various periods of time. It is, indeed, a

Syrsha and John speak know that each of these three individuals
has his own flair of dialogue and his own perspectives on life and
the journey of the Spirit.
