Boreham on Grasping & Passing the Torch

The Brighton Baptist Church in Melbourne is close to the Armadale Baptist Church, where F W Boreham served as pastor.

On the history page of the Brighton Baptist web site are some words and a quote from Dr Boreham who participated in the church’s centenary celebrations:

“Brighton Baptist Church has a long history, being founded in 1851. We are still encouraged and remember the words of F.W. Boreham as part of the 1951 Centenary celebrations: ‘we grasp the torch handed to us by noble predecessors, and who, in due time, pass it on to eager and faithful successors. Each a link in a golden chain.’”

Dr Geoff Pound
