Where have all the preachers gone (3)?
A while ago, I asked the question. It was prompted (as you will read, dear reader) by our experience in London - where should we worship? And in a follow-up I suggested that several preachers whom we might have expected to be significant in our nation by now had, instead, been called to America.
One good brother pointed out that I hadn't mentioned Grove Chapel, Camberwell where Mark Johnston is the pastor. 'Of course!' I thought. 'What an idiot! Why didn't I think of that? That's where we'll go next time.'
And now news has reached me that Mark has left Grove Chapel. Can you guess where he's gone?
