Pulpits: The Preached Word (Part 1)

Monday, July 6th, 2009

We all have those little things we enjoy doing when we visit places. Since I hold such a high view of the preaching ministry, one of my favorite things to do in historic places is standing in (or next to) pulpits in churches. I had lots of opportunities on the tour.

Inside the Fence

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

I cannot express how much I enjoyed our recent tour of England. I will try to post some thoughts and pictures from some of the highlights. A question one must answer when planning a tour such as this is, “How do we keep the Lord’s Day holy?” Just because one is on vacation, we are […]

A Gracious Tour Response

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

What a wonderful tour! All of us are very thankful to the Lord for His abundant mercies to us. We enjoyed safety (once or twice someone stepped into the street without looking to the right) and good weather, but mostly wonderful moments of friendship and a profound sense of the power of God’s workings among […]

B&PH Tour Day 10

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

This is our last full day of touring, and it’s a great place to finish. I have spent two terms studying at Oxford, and find it to be a beautiful and envigorating city. In the morning, a local guide will take us on a walking tour of the city, viewing the amazing ancient architecture of […]

B&PH Tour Day 9

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

Today is another Lord’s Day, and we are looking forward to worshiping with God’s people. We will be attending services at the Old Baptist Chapel in Bradford-on-Avon, now served by Paul Oliver, the son of Dr. Robert Oliver.

B&PH Tour Day 8

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Today we are in the ancient Roman town, Bath (for all of us Americans, that is Baath–you will be corrected if you don’t say it properly). While there isn’t much here in the way of Baptist or Puritan history, it is nevertheless a beautiful town and worth a visit.

BP&H Tour Day 7

Friday, June 19th, 2009

This is a day to drive and enjoy scenery–at least in the morning. We will be turning west and south, passing through the beautiful Cotswolds.

B&PH Tour Day 6

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Ah, one of the true highlights of our tour is today. We will be taking a special Pilgrim Tour, exploring the sites associated with the Mayflower Pilgrims.

B&PH Tour Day 5

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

It’s hard to believe how quickly our tour is passing. Today we continue to travel north, with an emphasis onĀ  Baptist history. Our first destination is the village of Moulton and the Carey Baptist Church.

B&PH Tour Day 2

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

What do you do to keep the Lord’s Day holy while on a tour in a foreign land? Well, one obvious activity is to attend church. And today, we will be visiting the Metropolitan Tabernacle, made famous by the great Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
