Two Peas in a Pod

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the passing of my Granny, who had an immeasurable influence on bringing me to faith in Christ. Today we remember the passing of the uncompromising +J.C. Ryle. 

Granny was a simple country gal from (the now inundated) Proctor, NC in the Great Smokies. Ryle was an Oxford-trained bishop of Liverpool and a prolific writer and preacher. But they share much in common.

"Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, 'I believed, and so I spoke,' we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence."

~ 2 Cor. 4:13-14 (from today's lectionary)
