“Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever…” Psalm 125:1

Dear Friends,

As the famous line goes, “the best-laid plans of mice and men go often astray”*, and I am sure that is descriptive of the experience of many of you this summer and as we go into the fall. Yet, as believers, we see things differently under the Lord’s almighty sovereign ways, and thus we proceed with confidence under His reigning authority.

What follows below are our ‘adjustments’ for the remainder of this year. May your adjustments also be met with the confidence that the Lord’s grace is sufficient and is truly renewed daily.

In Gospel Bonds,
Jack Whytock, Director

* “The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft agley” — from “To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest With the Plough”, a Scots-language poem written by Robert Burns in 1785

Dear Friends,
Thank you very much for praying for the winter months and in particular (given the world situation) the last couple of weeks. We arrived back earlier than planned (in order to follow government and airline orders), and by God’s grace we made it back into Canada before midnight on Sunday March 21st.

We are self-isolating now for 14 days in Ontario, so we can spend these next two weeks marking exams and starting to do some writing — will try to take advantage of this quiet time in a productive way. Thank you to all those who emailed words of encouragement the last couple of weeks. It was most appreciated.

Psalm 16
In the Lord,
Jack Whytock

Haddington House Fall 2019 Newsletter now available

Dear Friends,
It is hard to believe that we are into September and the autumn season in Canada is around the corner. Thank you for your faithful prayers for a busy July and August. I have included a brief report on the activities for the month of August and the wonderful blessing this month was.

We covet your prayers for the fall and early winter. The best way to summarize it is to say that it looks like it will require a great deal of multi-tasking! May the Lord grant His enablement and blessing.

I have been reflecting over something which I heard Dr. Andrew McGowan (Rutherford House, Scotland) say when he was doing a seminar in Jakarta, “The last 50 years society has had more impact on the Church than the Church on society”. The context was responding to the spiritual condition of Europe. What a statement. I thought of it as it applies to teaching and training future Christian leaders. We need to know the Word of God and know that it is our source of authority, but we also must be able to apply it well as light into the world. We cannot retreat nor can we forget our identity and authority basis as we engage with the world. It has always been this way; as in the days of Daniel, so today.

In Gospel Bonds,

Jack Whytock, Director
