Arrival in Glasgow, Scotland

We had an on time flight from Newark to Glasgow on Continental Airlines. Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, was founded by St. Mungo in A.D. 550. We visited the old area of the city around the Cathedral. The photo below is of the oldest building in the city. It was constructed in A.D. 1471. This University of Glasgow was in this area in previous times. It is here that both Thomas and Alexander Campbell attended university, and where they began their break with the Presbyterian church. They would become leaders in what we call the Restoration Movement in America.

You notice that there is no beautiful sky in the background. It even drizzled a little this morning. In the afternoon there were some beautiful periods of bright, sunny skies.

Glasgow was founded on the Clyde River. The swan adds a nice touch in this photo of the river. Glasgow was the home of Professor William Barclay, whose word studies have proved valuable to many preachers

In the afternoon we visited The Burrell Collection, a nice museum in a beautiful natural setting in the outskirts of Glasgow. It holds the private collection of Sir William Burrell. Some Scottish long hair coos (we say cows) were on display in fields around the museum.

Out hotel tonight is north of Glasgow at Cumbernauld. It is a resort hotel with a beautiful golf course. This photo outside my room tonight shows that I am only half bad, contrary to what some have said!

Everyone in the group is doing well. Every piece of luggage arrived with us, and we are enjoying the cooler weather.
