Thomas Case was an English Presbyterian minister and a member of the Westminster Assembly from 1643.  He was an enthusiastic supporter of the noble, yet short-lived Solemn League and Covenant that was intended to bind the British Isles together, writing, “To every soul that shall enter into this holy league and covenant, if we be sincere and faithful, this covenant shall be a foundation of much peace, joy, glory and security to us and our seed, to the coming of Christ.”

Kirkliston Parish Church – Solemn League and Covenant – SFH033

“Heaven is a rest without a rest, a place where the soul is always satisfied. It’s a place where the soul is always embracing God and yet desiring to embrace him. Its a place where joy and love are eternally flowing in, and admiration and praise eternally flowing out.”  Just some of the insights into the everlasting joys of heaven that Andrew Gray told a Communion congregation in Kirkliston Parish Church once.  Matthew Vogan visits Kirkliston Parish Church to discover some of the interesting artefacts that remain from the Second Reformation period.

You can read for yourself the address that Andrew Gray gave before the Communion on 12th June, 1653 for free on Google Books.  It’s on page 484 of The Works of the Reverend and Pious Andrew Gray.
