A Surprise from Pastor Armen Thomassian

Today I spoke at Faith Free Presbyterian Church in Greenville, South Carolina to a few hundred people on the topic of “Growing in Christ” in exercising a personal life of holiness, in developing a healthy marriage, and in leading our families. I also did a QA session with the pastor, Armen Thomassian (photo 1), and received a great surprise, when Armen presented me with a beautiful, large, detailed sculpture of William Perkins (photo 2), the father of Puritanism, for the Puritan Resource Center in our William Perkins Library at our Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.

I hope to continue the same theme tomorrow at Faith Free Presbyterian Church in relation to appreciation of Christ’s intercession (9:30 a.m.), life’s afflictions (11:00 a.m.), and Christ’s cry of dereliction (6:00 p.m.), as well as preach for the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) at 2:00 p.m. on Jacob wresting with the Angel of the Covenant.

We are thoroughly enjoying staying in the home of Pastor Thomassian, his wife Melanie, and their four precious daughters. Pastor Thomassian has begun a website familyworshipcompanion.com, in which he explains a chapter of the bible on video and makes relevant application points in order to help fathers to lead their families in family worship. He releases three episodes each week.
