Origins of the Old Tennent Church

I subscribe to a Presbyterian History blog written by a man named David Myers, a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. His posts dealing with the history of that conservative breakaway denomination are of little interest to me, but he does write frequently about our common history: particularly the Colonial era. I find those posts to be of much greater interest.

Imagine my surprise when I opened an email today and found that the subject of his latest historical reflection is the Old Tennent Church!

You can find his blog post on Old Tennent here.

Towards the end of the article David does say he wishes this historic congregation were a member of the PCA. (Sorry, David. We're proud, here in Monmouth Presbytery, that Old Tennent is one of our congregations, and has been such since the day our Presbytery was founded.)
