In 17th -century Scotland, times of trouble, torment, and tyranny threatened the lives of a community of believers determined to follow their beloved minister for the cause of liberty. How cold were the usurpers of such cruel authority! Yet they kept their hearts warm in the coldest season of adversity, clinging to truth and God's unwavering grace, and refusing to submit to unholy chains of corruption.
They never looked back; their eyes looked forward to their Redeemer -their salvation- and their eternal victory. May we follow their example, and with faith and fortitude walk in their steps.
