“I love the Sabbath most of all because one day, by God’s grace, I shall enjoy an eternal Sabbath in glory. [Hebrews 4:9]. My Heavenly Father does not compare the blessedness and peace of heaven with a workday Monday or a pleasure saturated Saturday, but He likens it to the Sabbath day.”[Rev. Professor Adam Loughridge].
This short quote came from the latest issue of the Canadian Lord’s Day Association magazine and was a great blessing to this writer. In 1949, as a boy of thirteen, I was sent off to the Reformed Presbyterian Church youth camp. It was held in the popular seaside resort of Portrush in conjunction with the local Glenmanus Reformed Presbyterian Church. Adam Loughridge was the minister there, and although I was not a Christian at the time, his godly life, gracious and humble manner had a big impact on my life. He was also a very good, faithful, and interesting preacher.
Our family moved to the Free Presbyterian Church, and so lost touch with the Covenanters, but I have never lost respect for those faithful campers who had such a positive impact in preparing my life at a later time to receive Christ as my Saviour.
