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 the colleges scattered throughout the city centre. I’m sure that everyone will be moved as we stand by the Marytr’s Memorial and see the spot where Cranmer, Latimer and Ridley gave their lives for the gospel.
We will make a visit to Christ Church, one of the most important colleges. John Owen was Dean there, John Wesley was ordained in its Cathedral, J.C. Ryle was a student there. More recently, it has been the setting for many popular TV shows and movies.
In the afternoon, many in our group will visit one of the truly great homes of England, Blenheim Palace, home to the Duke of Marlborough. Birthplace of Winston Churchill, the house and grounds are absolutely stunning and certainly worth a visit. Churchill is buried in the churchyard in the nearby village.
In the evening, we will drive back to London and enjoy a farewell dinner. Sadly, tomorrow we fly home. But we will all be very thankful to the Lord for all that we have seen and heard. We have a wonderful heritage. God is at work still.
