“Give me Scotland, lest I die!” John Knox—1505-1572
Dates: October 24-25, 2008
Welcome to Scotland!
Scotland visits Central Illinois! Join Christian families from around the nation as we celebrate the amazing work of God’s providential hand during the Scottish Reformation! Make new friends as you enjoy a wholesome time of learning, adventure, music, feasting, games, and Christian fellowship. Imagine the heather dancing in the wind, looming castles, the music of bagpipes, and stirring tales of danger, faithfulness, and devotion to God. Learn about Scottish Reformers, such as John Knox, Patrick Hamilton, and George Wishart. Celebrate with us the victory of King Jesus and the Truth which shook the world in this turbulent, yet triumphant era in history.
Music by Nathan Clark George
Nathan has presented hundreds of concerts at camps, churches, and coffee houses around the nation, where his music is appreciated by both the young and old. His goal is to encourage a multi-generational vision for the family and the Kingdom of Peace through a truly musical presentation of the Scriptures and transparent snapshots of life that are convicting, yet full of hope. www.nathanclarkgeorge.com
