DAY 1: Glasgow High Kirk (Cathedral), St. George's Tron; Necropolis

Absolutely beautiful, blue sky, warm sun day. Three of our folks had mechanical problems and had to return to Philly; they arrive, Lord willing, via Manchester tomorrow evening; 'The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.'
Then we visited St. George's Tron where Sinclair Ferguson preached, and Eric Alexander, and where William Phillips now ministers. We learned more about the crisis in the Kirk.

At Fenwick Kirk, built in 1643, we met with Rev. Geoff Redmayne, who told us all about the church, William Guthrie's ministry and military leadership.

Wonderful dinner at Fenwick Hotel, and good fellowship with the young people on the tour. Read Psalm 93, Calvin's favorite, on Jesus reigning over the nations and all things, including tyrants who attempt to usurp the Crown rights of the Redeemer in his Kirk. This is going well! Thanks be to God.

And Cheryl in the jougs. Definition: jougs pl n (Scot. history) an iron ring, fastened by a chain to a wall, post, or tree, in which an offender was held by the neck; common in Scotland.

  1. Looks like your having a wonderful time!

    Since I'll probably never be able to join one of your tours, I really appreciate your posting so much about it so that I can at least get a taste.

    Blessings on the rest of your adventure!
