"Our Time of Troubles... commenced with the catastrophic events of the year of 1914... Our civilization has just begun to recover." - Arnold Toynbee, quoted by Russell Kirk

A Prince has Fallen

"Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel?"

Words cannot begin to describe my feelings of loss at the passing of Dr. R. C. Sproul into glory. Like thousands of others, I first came to know the Reformed faith through the teachings of Sproul and can still remember the Sunday School lessons we had with his lecture videos in our dear church Westminster Presbyterian in Vincennes, Indiana. He ran his race faithfully and was, I believe, the greatest American reformer since Jonathan Edwards. Below is a little video of Sproul talking about his favorite subject, the Holiness of God; which holiness he now eternally endures with a reverent adoration, clothed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ. A prince is fallen in Israel.

Fare thee well, oh England fair

Saying goodbye... last walks, final sunsets, and coming home...

Crossing the Tyne River...

 A sunset...

Sunset over Sunniside

Tawny owl outside my window at night.

 Eating American style with a friend

 Duckling in the pond, Civic Center, Newcastle

Walking through the wood

Passing through my last gate in England

 Evening over the orchard wall...

 Leaving the orchard...

American breakfast at the Newcastle airport

American flag in the Detroit airport

 Detroit airport fountain
 Detroit airport control tower
 Michigan fields over a wing

 The meadow back in Midland.
