Why Free St. George's?



Why did I choose the title 'Free St. George's', not something in Greek or Latin (or Gaelic)? Well, the answer is a name, Alexander Whyte.
Alexander Whyte is one of the three authors who have had most impact on me. As the others are C.H. Spurgeon and John Calvin, I used a Whyte reference for my blog title. The others have been done.
Free St. George's (now St. George's West Church Edinburgh, see previous post) was Whyte's church for the greater part of his ministry, and there you have the whole in a nutshell.

Michael Haykin recently posted a very helpful blog post on Whyte:

Great start on the blog. I hope to visit often.

We need to free more than St. George's, but the entire reformed community needs to be freed from where we have gotten ourselves!
