Testimonial

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“The shop, the barn, the scullery, and the smithy become temples when men and women do all to the glory of God. The 'divine service' is not a thing of a few hours and a few places, but all life becomes holiness unto the Lord, and every place and thing, as consecrated as the tabernacle and its golden candlestick.
