Yesterday I joined the One-week Trainees for their church history tour of Cambridge. It was a lovely afternoon, and enjoyable to see in person the sites that are significant to the translation of the Bible and the beginning of the recovery of the truth. Maybe I’ll write more on it another time. For now, here is a modern-day site of significance:

The Amana Tea Room used to be here!

After the tour, we watched a video about Margaret E. Barber, a missionary who went to China simply as a grain of wheat to fall into the ground and die and produce much fruit, just like her precious Lord Jesus (John 12:24). Even though M. E. Barber didn’t do anything great outwardly, her life was full of meaning and significance. I appreciate this quote of hers that was mentioned in the video:

The requirement to work for the Lord is not to work.

Amen, may this also become our experience and testimony, to simply learn to be real priests – those coming into the Lord’s presence to be infused with Him, filled with Him, and overflowing Him.
