Meeting of the Celts
We had a most interesting fellowship meeting in our congregation last night. I, a Scot, hosted a missionary from Ireland, and had a Welshman, visiting our congregation, lead in prayer. I cannot publicise any details about the missionary, because of the area in which he and his wife are working, but it was remarkable to hear of the presence of Christians among the darkest parts of our world. Indeed, few people could speak after listening to him and his wife. As he reminded us, a birthday candle in the sunlight cannot make much difference, but in the darkest cathedral it can make all the difference in the world. How thankful we ought to be for those who are willing to place themselves in areas of high risk to be lights in the darkness; and what a privilege to be able to support them from our home churches.
