HUMOUR IN ADVERSITY. For decades one of the main annual Free Presbyterian events is the Easter Convention held in the Martyrs’ Memorial FPC in Belfast, Northern Ireland, when thousands of Free Presbyterians meet from all over to celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ. The convention is undoubtedly a highlight of the church year.
This year, because of the Covid19 problem, an abbreviated event was held on Easter Monday. It featured some live preaching, via the internet, and they also showed some film clips from previous years with the church packed with over 2000 people. Some wag, no doubt wanting to get the church in trouble, phoned the police to complain about this crowd of people not social distancing. The police arrived at the church to find only two cars in the car park. No doubt the troublemaker could be recognized by his scarlet face!
