Even though I grew up in the Reformed Presbyterian Church and had some knowledge of the things we studied, such as the Westminster Confession of Faith and theology in general, studying it all in the setting of the church and being able to take so much time to read through and discuss the material helped the knowledge to really seep into my head and also into my heart.

Scottish Reformation Tours

Reformation Tours, a ministry of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland, is offering Reformation Tours before and after the Covenanter International Holiday Conference in Ireland in July 2018. The week before the Conference we have organised a Reformation Tour of Scotland, and the week after the Conference we are offering a Reformation Tour of Northern Ireland and Ireland.

If you are planning on going to the Conference, why not extend your trip and take one of these Reformation Tours to learn more about the history of our church, the faith of our spiritual ancestors, and the great things the Lord has done in Scotland and Ireland in the past.

Reformation Tours is a non-profit ministry of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Any funds remaining after direct costs are paid are used to facilitate church planting in Scotland. So, by coming on these Tours you are also helping to support the RP Church of Scotland in their church planting and revitalising endeavours.

You can find out more about these Tours here: http://www.reformationtours.org/tours/open-tours/

Final Reflections

When reflecting upon my time in Scotland, the old adage comes to mind: “time flies when you’re having fun.” Yes, yes, I know, that’s a cheesy line, but it’s true! As I look back on the past four months, all I can really think about is how thankful I am. It feels like I just arrived at Scotland, but also feels as if I’ve been here for forever.

Goodbye for Now

Four months have come and gone in a blink of an eye. It is hard to believe that as I sit here writing this, it is already mid-December and in four days I will be on a plane back home. The people here have been so welcoming, and with the right attitude, Scotland can easily become a second home, like it has been for me. [ 267 more words ]
