After spending our first of two nights at Carberry Tower, we ventured over to Edinburgh, just a few minutes away. We visited the church where John Knox used to preach, St. Giles, and also were able to visit his house. We also visited Edinburgh Castle which is on the top of the hill, the very highest point of the city. Afterwards we drove through the Scottish countryside to see what we could see (all the while wholly dependent on what has proven to be our indispensable GPS system). To close, a quote demonstrating why certain men were chosen of God to spark the Protestant Reformation… those who feared God rather than man (or woman for that matter). Bold, manly, unabashed:
First they ought to remove from honour and authority that monster in nature — so call I a woman clad in the habit of a man, yea, a woman against nature reigning above man.
— John Knox
