Ingleton Parish Church: Slate Messages

I recently visited Ingleton. Sadly the parish church was shut but I walked about its perimeter and espied a number of slates upon which words in white were written. Some of the messages were a little twee, but they all urged the readers to consider life’s spiritual dimension and Christ’s offer of eternal life. That they were hand-written made the reader all the more curious. I wonder if we should do such a thing? Passers-by often do just that to our noticeboards, but for a handwritten message on a piece of slate, they might just stop and read.
