It’s easy to be modern,

When you live in a modern day,

To let the old slip from you

To let it slide far away.

A small canoe into a barge.

And also shrinking those big things,

Till they don’t look nearly as large.  – eab, 2/13/07

“Revival must ever be related to holiness, true revival is a revival of holiness”

                Andrew Woolsey, Duncan Campbell, (London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1974), 164.

 

Duncan Campbell was born this date in Scotland.  I had the privilege of hearing him speak but once and that very near the end of his holy life.
