The best way I know to describe what took place on October 6, 1989 in Atlanta, Georgia at the General Assembly of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States is by quoting from two letters written to me after our meeting by a visitor in attendance.
"It is impossible for words to describe the impact of my visit to Atlanta last week. I have never imagined that people such as I met at Chalcedon Presbyterian Church for the General Assembly/Presbytery meeting even existed. I dreamed perhaps that there existed a group of people who are unified in their beliefs, and more importantly are unashamedly dogmatic, but until last week I had been fairly disillusioned. What a joy to be around ministers who stand for the whole counsel of God, who believe what I believe, and who are also very warm, kind and loving. I am nothing less than excited and full of anticipation concerning the prospects for the future. I have not a clue as to how it is going to happen; but I believe that I will be a member of the RPCUS sometime soon."
