A SERENDIPITOUS MEETING & ROBERT MURRAY McCHEYNE

The word “serendipity” and its adjective “serendipitous” were coined in the mid-18th century by Horace Walpole to describe the happy and beneficial discovery, by “accidents” and sagacity, of things that were not being sought.

My research assistant, Ian Clary, had one of these serendipitous meetings this morning that only God could arrange. And central to it was the 19th century Scottish preacher, Robert Murray McCheyne (1813-1843). Read about it at: “A Little Encouragement from M'Cheyne.”
