The Parish Ministry of Thomas Chalmers

Talking with Rev. Michael Ives of the Presbyterian Reformed Church of Rhode Island about the parish ministry of Rev. Thomas Chalmers.

Rev. Michael Ives of the Presbyterian Reformed Church of Rhode Island (https://prcofri.com/) came on the show to talk about the nearly forgotten parish ministry of Rev. Thomas Chalmers, a nineteenth-century minister in the Free Church of Scotland. If you're thinking that this episode includes nothing more than a short lesson on the history of an obscure Presbyterian minister in Scotland, think again. As Rev. Ives so ably demonstrates, there is a lot that the Presbyterian Church in the twenty-first century can learn from this giant of Scottish Presbyterianism.

Please check out Rev. Ives' website https://westportexperiment.com/ if you want to know more about what parish ministry looks like in a modern context. 

Rev. Ives, thanks so much for joining me! I look forward to doing it again soon!
