CELEBRATION OF FAMILY: LETTERS OF ANDREW MURRAY TO HIS CHILDREN
“The one thing we need is to look up to that Love which wants to do all for us and in us.” – Andrew Murray
May 9th 2020 is the 192nd birthday commemoration of Dr Andrew Murray. We had hoped to celebrate his life and legacy with you at the Andrew Murray Centre for Spirituality with silence, meditation, scriptures and music.
Instead, due to the covid-19 lockdown, we have produced a series Celebration of Family: Letters of Andrew Murray to his children.
In these nine short videos – we introduce Andrew Murray as the father of eight children. Glimpse something of their lives, relationships, challenges and troubles. And, in his letters to them, Andrew’s words of loving wisdom and steadfast guidance to trust in God alone:
My Dearest child,
I have been praying for you that the Lord would give you just such a birthday blessing as you need. I think I know of some things you need, but He knows better, and He knows above all by what ways to reach your heart, and open it for Himself and his blessing.”
