Dear Brethren and Friends,

 

May I attract your attention to the Annual Conference of the Protestant Reformation Society to be held at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford from August 26th to 28th this year? Our subject is the 18th Century Awakening which was a period ablaze with the revival of true religion throughout Britain and the European Continent, besides especially North American. After the reaction against Reformed principles in the so-called Century of Crisis leading up to this period, the Good News flourished once more and we remember the heroes of this Great Awakening with the same admiration as we show the fathers of the Reformation. May God grant us more of their kind in the years to come!

 

George M. Ella
