A tale of two statues

I have often felt that there is a wealth of good reading material buried away in the annals of past editions of congregational and denominational magazines. Our own denominational paper, The Monthly Record (its title has not changed since the 1840s!) is no exception, and some of the best material in it has been the published versions of addresses given at the opening of past General Assemblies by newly appointed Moderators.

 

I have been re-reading one of the best of these, which was by Alex MacDonald, minister of Buccleuch Free Church in Edinburgh, who was Moderator in 2005. He gave an address on 'Hope for a Lost World', and begins with the tale of two Edinburgh statues. It was published in the July/August 2005 edition of the Record (pages 4-13), and is available in PDF format here.
