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.’”

Boreham with Truth for Ordinary Lives

I am constantly amazed at how F W Boreham’s books continue to be quoted and increasingly by members of the younger generation.

Check out this article by Nathan Zacharias and also posted by Tim, who finds meaning in Boreham’s essay, The Poppies in the Corn, and applies it skillfully to his own life and clan.
