Dear Friends,

It has been a busy summer and autumn thus far due to travels throughout North America (and also in the UK) to speak with many about the ongoing need for theological training (15 churches in total). Many congregations have been most welcoming and have affirmed their partnership in this very important ministry of the Word of God. One focus of discussion has been on the call for indigenous theological education and a call to co-labour with the global church. There have been a few good smiles concerning the analogy I have been using about raising children. Special thanks to Donnie Frizell for a good discussion about that! Also, thank you to all who have been so kind and welcoming. Along the way, there was also opportunity to speak at and participate in two conferences, and that was most stimulating.

 

You will notice with this newsletter that we have retooled our Haddington House logo in an effort to update a little. Next year is our 25th year and we are busy thinking about that.

 

Our newsletter this autumn focuses on introducing the 2018 Journal, the book project which is being worked on right now – Voices of Thanksgiving, updates on projects at one of the overseas partners— Dumisani Theological Institute, and the fall teaching schedule (which is very limited this year as many of you will know) and an update about Nancy. I will not be teaching the master’s courses at Africa Reformation Theological Seminary, Kampala, Uganda this year but am planning to teach there in November, 2019. Thanks to Dr. Charles Jackson for taking my courses there this year at ARTS so that I can be home more with Nancy while she is not able to travel to Africa. Good things are happening at ARTS; it is so encouraging to see this seminary advancing the Kingdom by training many in the Word.

 

Yours in the Lord, Jack Whytock, Director

Expanded article on liturgy, church architecture, and church history recently published in South Africa

This article by Dr. Jack Whytock explores the reformation of space for public Christian worship past and present. The article has three parts: 1st, a general survey of worship space at the eve of the Reformation; 2nd, the response of the Magisterial Reformers; and 3rd, the ongoing use of space for public worship, chiefly in the evangelical/reformed tradition.

Dear Friends,

I hope that you will enjoy reading updates in this Spring newsletter on the various aspects of ministry through Haddington House Trust. Before you begin reading, I want to take this opportunity to personally say “thank you” to the many who have sent cards, written emails, visited, helped, provided meals, and called during the recent illness of my wife, Nancy. Thank you so much for all your expressions of love and concern. We are now at the four-month point and we are still seeing many signs of continuing improvement. The road to recovery is long but thank you so much for surrounding us along the way. You have given tremendous encouragement.

Yours in the Lord,
Jack Whytock, Director
