History of Preaching in New Brunswick - Epilogue


In writing this history of New Brunswick, I have included, to my knowledge, every Christian group who have met as an assembly in New Brunswick, claiming where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them, Matthew 18:20, as their reason for so gathering.

I thought it was wonderful to see how God worked through His servants (and that includes all Christians) to spread the Gospel in this province down through the generations.

The cooperation I have had has been almost 100% and has been appreciated in compiling this record.

Some day, through our belief in the Lord Jesus Christ dying for us on Calvary?s cross, we will be together for all eternity. We should be practicing now for that coming Day. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "a new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you". How are we all doing personally in obeying this command?

God looks on us very differently from the way we look at each other and at other assemblies.

Man has divided Christians all over this world but God sees us all as one in Christ.

Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy work to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

Psalm 145:3, 4

This is text copy for the back cover:

This book is a history of people who were saved and became part of assemblies who gather together in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in local churches in New Brunswick, Canada.

This is a compilation of information from taped interviews with seniors, collections of articles from magazines from the late 1800's and early 1900's; recollections of memories of many people in New Brunswick and elsewhere as well as from city directories, census records and birth and death records.

As the Gospels differ from each other from the writer?s insight and point of view so some of these stories may differ as people remembered what they had experienced and what others had told them. There are probably many differences as each recollected in their own way. When many people witness a historic event, they don?t necessarily all remember it in the same way.
